Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Reaches Funding Goal




Shantae: Half-Genie Hero has reached its 400,000 goal on Kickstarter and is officially funded, WayForward Technologies have announced. Additionally, the studio revealed two more stretch goals for the game today.


At $900,000, the game will allow you to play as three more characters—Rottytops, Bolo and Sky—each with their own story and abilities. Meanwhile, at the $1 million mark, a bonus chapter with be added to the game, featuring a “Nega-Shantae”.


It’s unlikely that either of these stretch goals will be hit, but with ten days to go before the Kickstarter ends, WayForward could reach the $500,000 stretch goal, which will add Risky Boots to the game as a playable character, complete with her own campaign.


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