Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Now Available to Download!

It’s been in development for years, but Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is now available to download! Created by WayForward, it’s part of a great (but underrated) series of 2D platformers dating back to the Game Boy era, and is well worth a buy for anyone interested in that genre.

So yeah, watch the trailer here:

And go buy it on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, Vita or Steam right now. Well okay. I guess you could wait for a physical release if that’s your thing. I mean, that’s out in just a week too.

But either way, it’s gonna be a good game. Check it out if you get the chance!

It's been getting positive reviews across the board and is bringing some positive light back to game backing that Mighty 9 darken.

I backed this and I got the PS4 version (updated after the drop of PS3 support), though I am unable to play it right now since I lack a PS4 but I'll play this sometime next year (give them time to fix bugs and push out some DLC).

I've been waiting for this for months. I can't wait to play it and I don't have the funds and I'm so sad. T_T
