It’s been about three years since WayForward Technologies launched a Kickstarter for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, and the long wait is finally nearing its end. Last month, the upcoming action-platformer went up for preorder on GameStop, and the listing claimed that the game would launch on September 27th. Since then, WayForward has released a new Kickstarter update which confirms that date as the target for the game’s release on PC, Wii U, PS4, Vita, and Xbox One.
The new update also revealed that artist Temmie Chang (known for her work on
Undertale and for the species of monsters named after her in the game) is joining the Half-Genie Hero development team to help with animations. There are also more details about the game’s physical release, including a Q&A section. You can check out the full update by clicking here.
