Shanteae Half-Genie Hero (PS3 360 PS4 Xbone WiiU PC Vita\Vita TV)

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the game will takes cues from Metroid, Zelda and Castlevania, and will feature an all-new art style and story. Like the Metroid-inspired Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, it will feature an interconnected world.

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?

As the player it's your job to find the source of this new evil power and banish it once and for all. The story is doled out in CHAPTERS, with each chapter introducing new subplots, friends & foes, a new Transformation to discover, puzzles to solve, hazards to overcome, and a Boss to conquer. Revisiting past chapters with newly acquired abilities will unlock the next set of paths, powers & plot-lines.
The latest series by Wayforward and will be on all Console platforms including the next-gen ones!

I just started playing Shantae Risky's Revenge and so far I like it a lot. I'm planning on buying Shantae and the Pirate's Curse and I hope Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero comes out sometime down the line so that I can get that too. :3

An amusing strip; bonus for the (unintentional?) classic LucasArts nod... even if the game in question seems to be more 'cute' than 'fanservice'. On which note, the lady might want to have a talk with Mr. Kojima about his latest idea...

Seems pretty cool. And on a related note, the Risky's Revenge Greenlight has gone through.

The song they had in the trailer was pretty catchy to.

And WayForward has announced the planned release of that title to the 3DS' eShop this winter ( article).

Roger Rambo 2013-09-08 17:58

So Warforward listened to complaints that Shantae was too pale.

Firefly00 2013-09-10 21:37

It's multiplying...
WayForward has confirmed that the available platforms will now include Vita and Vita TV.

Roger Rambo 2013-09-16 07:05

Some artwork/assets that got released in a fankit a couple days back.

This looks pretty promising. Plus could always use this kind of game for my Vita.

Apparently the people doing Mighty #9 (the people behind Megaman doing a spiritual sequel to it) are involved in the Shantae projects.

I for one would be amused if they got together and created for each game a standalone 'crossover' segment (not a full 'act'; maybe a level or 2 capped by a boss) - that is, you'd see over in M9, in its native art style, a level and its assets you'd expect in HGH, and vice versa.

Another possibility: have Call's threads show up as one of Shantae's unlockable outfits (and give Beck an alternate based on Bolo...

Guys please read the guidelines on the first post and please stop linking to the project page on KS.

Roger Rambo 2013-09-20 21:37

So apparently Shantae Risky's Revenge is going to be free to play for awhile on iOS platforms for awhile. So anyone with a compatible device might want to give it a shot real quick.

Also, they added a new costume to Risky's revenge. Different ingame stats. Something about double health and half magic...

...or maybe I got that backwards. :heh:

Sidapa 2013-10-03 07:25

Yes you did have it backwards somewhat. Shantae gets double the magic but receives twice the damage from attacks.

Well the outfit makes my statement pretty obviously factious :p

Also, this is probably old news, but for reasons that cannot be specified this game is definitely going to be made and will be coming out.

I'm absolutely in love with the theme song. That bass in the beginning is just bangin.

I like the song also since it is being sung by Cristina Vee. She is one of my favorite voice actresses.

In other news, the Kickstarter campaign has ended with a little over 800K. With that much the game is slated to be made. Additionally, it has reached 4 of it's Stretch Goals:

The PayPal is still open for a few months to help fund the rest of the Stretch Goals.

They are:

Of the 4 currently funded Stretch Goals which is the one are you, the reader(s), excited for? For me, it is the Costume Swap. I would like to see how the Officer Wagon or the Ninja costume would play differently than normal default form of Shantae.
