Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Comes to Nintendo Switch This Summer

It’s already available on every eighth generation console out there, but now WayForward has announced that their hit platformer Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is coming to Switch too! Yep, the game is coming to the system this summer, with HD rumble support.

Here’s their tweet confirming the news:

And that’s good news for anyone who missed out on the Wii U. Why? Because Shantae Half-Genie Hero is a really fantastic 2D platformer that many more people should get to experience. So yeah, by having it come to the Switch, Nintendo fans who didn’t buy a Wii U won’t be missing out on the game.

There also might be a few new things too, given the comments about ‘more details coming soon’. Not sure exactly what they could add, but it’d be good news none the less. Maybe Amiibo support could be a possibility?

Ah well, doesn’t matter. It’s a great game, it’s now coming to Nintendo Switch and it’ll be available this summer. So hey, what do you think? Are you excited for this game on Switch?
