Shantae: Half-Genie Hero needs your help!
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, a new title in the Shantae series, has been announced as WayForward's previously-teased Kickstarter project.
The game, set to take place after the events of the upcoming 3DS title Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, will feature a completely new HD art style. Should the project be funded, Half-Genie Hero will launch on all current and next gen systems, including Wii U, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and Steam.
During the first day of the campaign and at the time of this writing, the Kickstarter has reached $83,660 of its initial funding goal of $400,000. Backer rewards include collector's edition packs featuring digital downloads of the game, lenticular motion posters, gold coins, t-shirts, art books and the opportunity to hang out with the WayForward development team during the game's wrap-up party.
The campaign ends on Friday, October 4.
