Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Now Coming To PS Vita As Well

Recommended Videos

In addition to PC, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is now also headed to the PlayStation Vita. Developer WayForward write on the game’s Kickstarter page:


As it happens, the landscape of gaming has shifted somewhat today with Sony’s VITA TV announcement. In response, we’ve decided to port wfEngine to Vita as part of our “work-for-hire” business.


What does this mean for Half-Genie Hero? Well, it means that we can include both VITA and VITA TV as part of our $400K funding goal. It’s not a Stretch Goal, just part of the package.


Shantae Half-Genie Hero is one of two Shantae games in development at the moment. While this game is headed to PC and consoles, the other title, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, is in development for Nintendo 3DS. Neither game has a release date yet.
