Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, WayForward’s crowdfunded Shantae game for PC and consoles, will let you see the interior of Shantae’s lighthouse home for the first time, the team revealed in a recent progress update.


Concept art for the inside of Shantae’s home has existed since the days of Shantae on the Game Boy Color, but WayForward are creating new concept art for Half-Genie Hero as well. Two of these illustrations can be seen below.


Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is in development for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

  • Oh Ishaan, I thought that was a metaphor for a sec… damn it, DAMN IT ALL!!

    Still though, it’s brilliant to see this game is actually making progress. I didn’t manage to support the Kickstarter (because let’s face it, who can afford to?), but I knew as soon as I saw what to expect that this will definitely be an instabuy when it eventually releases. Hyped me is still hyped? :D

    Hmm… and some future Shantae omake would be nice too >_>

    Alright! I wonder what secrets lie in Shantae’s house?

    Such a small house, poor Shantae.

    It’s very basic lol

    I think my biggest dilemma is figuring out which console to buy this on.

      Wii U for me

    • Michael Carr

      All of them, of course! :P

    I look at that and all I wonder is whether if it’s actually feasible to constantly sleep in a hammock and climb to the second floor on a rope. Can’t be comfortable, that.

    This game is one of the reasons I still have my PS Vita!
