A while back I wrote about WayForward’s recent Kickstarter that opened crowd funding for Shantae: Half Genie Hero. While being overshadowed by Mighty No. 9’s Kickstarter due to Shantae being a pretty obscure series these days, It successfully received over $800,000, which is double their minimum goal. With the help of 18,500+ backers, WayForward also managed to reach four of their stretch goals, which promises new transformations, costumes, characters, and storylines.
I’m glad to see Shantae still has a dedicated fan base ready to fund another game after all of these years in the back seat. While not every stretch goal was reached, WayForward is still open to donations through PayPal on their site. To get every stretch goal, another ~$500,000 is needed, so even though the Kickstarter is over, keep spreading the word! Let’s keep the Shantae Party Van riding on and get extra characters and voice acting up in this bitch!
