Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Kickstarter So, WayForward is doing a kickstarter for an HD Shantae game. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Kickstarter The game will takes cues from Metroid, Zelda and Castlevania, and will feature an all-new art style and story. WayForward have set their funding goal at $400,000. This, they say, will allow them to create three chapters of the game and an “exciting conclusion”. With the help of stretch goals, however, they hope to add more features, such as being able to play as Shante’s arch-nemesis, Risky Boots, and a bonus chapter to play through. I'm definitely on board. I'm a fan of the games and the new theme by Jake Kaufman is already becoming a favorite of mine. I'll support this as much as I can.
