WayForward have posted a brief update on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, their upcoming Shantae game that they crowdfunded via Kickstarter. In an update late last week, WayForward revealed how the game will be broken up.
“We’re designing 2 intro segments (one for Shantae and one for Risky Boots), 5 main Chapters or “Worlds”, and an epic conclusion,” WayForward wrote on the game’s Kickstarter page.
“Some of these Worlds will be themed to the stretch goals you all made happen — racing on magic carpets in one case, tracking down the secret origins of Shantae’s new Guardian Genie Rival in the other. Each chapter will have its own enemies, music, effects, environments, and bosses which all get broken down into tasks, with time and money accounted for.”
Above is a look at brief concepts for the game’s worlds, documented in a sketchbook. And the image below is meant to illustrate the different kinds of environments being considered for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.
You can find more development details in the update post. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is in development for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
