Thanks to additional funding for WayForward’s Kickstarter project Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
, a new campaign will be coming to the game. The second campaign stars the game’s antagonist, Risky Boots, attempting to carry out a plot to defeat Shantae. Risky will carry out her evil ways using an arsenal of weapons including the Scimitar and Pistol.
It was also just announced that backers of the Kickstarter who choose a reward that contains a copy of the game will be receiving an exclusive alternate blue costume for Shantae to wear. This download code will only be available to those who back the Kickstarter and not when the game sees a general release.Shantae: ½ Genie Hero
is slated for release late in 2014. There’s still time to contribute to the Kickstarter campaign, with a little under three days left to reach some of the proposed stretch goals and to get in on some exclusive Kickstarter rewards.
