Shantae: Half-Genie Hero has accumulated around $145,000 in Kickstarter funds thus far. WayForward hope to reach $400,000 to help fund the development of the game, with all funds beyond that contributing to various stretch goals.


In addition to Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the developer is also creating Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, a completely separate game for Nintendo 3DS. You can read about that game here.
