Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Is Coming Out This Month

Wayforward’s Shantae is a action/adventure/platformer that has appeared on the 3DS, Wii U, and other platforms too. I have reviewed and played a few of these games and they are always good. The newest Shantae game, Half-Genie Hero, will be coming out this month!


Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be coming out on December 20th! According to the Kickstarter page for the game, it will be released for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PSVita for that game for sure. They are currently “awaiting final confirmation” of a Wii U release for that day too.

Here is how the game’s story is described via the kickstarter page:

”  In our story, Shantae is roused from a deep sleep, suddenly alert. She plunges into the moonlit forest in search of answers. In nearby Scuttle Town she discovers a mysterious trapdoor, and beyond that, a luminous subterranean cavern. A familiar voice calls out, drawing Shantae to a beautiful fountain. Touching its waters she is immediately spirited away to the fabled Genie Realm. At her feet a magical seal swells as some powerful evil seeks escape. The chamber trembles with a deep, bellowing roar and everything goes white. Shantae sits upright, back in her bed. Was it just a dream? Or a vision of things to come? ”

Here is the first 15 minutes of the game via GameXplain:
