WayForward Technologies’ Shantae: Half-Genie Hero has reached its funding goal on Kickstarter with 10 days still remaining as 10,387 backers pledged $413,535 thus far. The original funding goal was $400,000.
The developer posted an updated on its Kickstarter page, stating that, “We’re fully funded and WayForward’s staff is running around and high-fiving like there’s no tomorrow! Thank you for your support and fan art, all of the noise you’ve been making on Facebook and Twitter and every kind of social media. We’ve got fans posting artwork at their local game stores, uploading images to Crunchyroll, and even stopping by in person at the Giant Robot event to push this game forward. Thanks to all of you!”
Part of WayForward’s own platforming, belly dancing, hair whipping series, Half-Genie Hero sees Shantae finally make her debut on home consoles with a release primed for Wii U, PS3, PS4, PS Vita/Vita TV, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC (via Steam). Stay tuned for more details.
