Belly dancing Shantae: Half Genie Hero kickstarter is a go as it shimmies past its goal with nine days still to go.
The team behind Ducktales: Remastered have got their wish, as the Kickstarter for their own IP staring half Genie Shantae is fully funded, and still over a week to go to get some extra cash and maybe hit some stretch goals. It’s currently sitting at $437,925 of its $400,000 goal. If it hits $500,000 a new campaign with a second character is added. It’s already coming out on nearly everything imaginable - Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Vita, Vita TV, Wii U and PC – although we have no idea about a release date.
This comes after the news that one of the artists from Inti Creates, also behind the Mighty No.9 Kickstarter, Makoto Yabe is helping out WayForward providing character illustrations and background art to Half Genie Hero as well as Shantae’s upcoming 3DS game Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse.
Oh and to celebrate, the second game in the series, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge is now free on iOS for a limited time. If I’m reading this announcement properly, I think it even ties into Half Genie Hero with costumes or something.
