Default Shantae (3DS)

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero coming if funded to Vita, Vita TV

(11 hours ago)
14

WayForward will grant wishes for a Vita version of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, but not just the regular version of the portable. If it meets its funding goal, the Kickstarter platformer will hair-whip its way onto Vita and the freshly unveiled Vita TV.

In a Kickstarter update, WayForward said it had noted fans asking for Half-Genie Hero to appear on Vita in addition to the Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC versions already detailed. However, the catalyst for the portable's addition was yesterday's Sony conference, and the reveal of Vita TV, a micro-console version of the handheld. Vita TV plugs into tellies and lets users play Vita games using a DualShock.

"As it happens," reads WayForward's update, "The landscape of gaming has shifted somewhat today with Sony's Vita TV announcement. In response, we've decided to port wfEngine to Vita as part of our 'work-for-hire' business."

That suggests we'll likely see more WayForward games on Vita and Vita TV, although the American studio hasn't announced anything yet. As for Half-Genie Hero, at the time of writing it's at just over $220,000 of its $400,000 goal, only a week or so after kicking off and with 24 days on the clock. Looks like the new Shantae is bound for plenty of systems.

Cartwright, during her time off from Skullgirls, created all of the “rough animation” for Shantae’s new HD animation, including ready stances, hair-whips, running, jumping, ducking, crawling and more.

Shantae teams up with Mighty No. 9 dev for 'Half-Genie Hero'

(5 minutes ago)
0

Japanese studio Inti Creates is handling development duties on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, WayForward's HD installment in the beloved platforming series. You may also recall Inti Creates as the same house handling Keiji Inafune's retro-inspired game, Mighty No. 9.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is currently seeking aid through Kickstarter. Publisher WayForward is looking to secure $400,000 in the next 16 days and, as of right now, the campaign has earned over $318,000.

Inti Creates was formed in 1996 by some talent who had left Capcom to strike out on their own. The studio has since formed a working relationship with Capcom and produced several entries in the Mega Man series, including Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10, and the Mega Man Zero line of games. Inti Creates is also responsible for the upcoming 3DS game, Shantae and the Pirate's Curse.

Shantae: Risky's Revenge goes free on iOS as sequel nears funding goal

(35 minutes ago)
8

To celebrate the impending success of its Kickstarter-funded platformer Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, WayForward has released its iOS predecessor game Shantae: Risky's Revenge as a free download in the iTunes App Store for a limited time.

Following up on its debut for DSiWare in 2011, Risky's Revenge originally hit the App Store as a free trial download, with the full game locked behind an in-app purchase. WayForward has since removed this restriction, and the App Store download now includes the full version of the game.

The iOS version of Risky's Revenge has also been updated with a new optional costume, along with the ability to skip cutscenes. WayForward notes that the Dancer costume has "double the magic power, but half the defense" of Shantae's regular outfit, making it an ideal fit for speedrunners.

Currently, the Kickstarter project for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero has earned over $395,000 toward its funding goal of $400,000. Developed in collaboration with Mighty No. 9 developer Inti Creates, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is set to launch for the Wii U, PlayStation 3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC platforms in 2014.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero leaps past Kickstarter goal

(5 hours ago)
21

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero has been funded. With 10 days left in the game's Kickstarter effort, WayForward Technologies has pulled in $416,360, topping its $400,000 goal.

Thanks to fan generosity, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will appear on nearly everything, having been confirmed for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Vita, Vita TV, Wii U and PC. There's currently no release date or window for when we can expect to play Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.

Now that the $400,000 goal has been breached, the next rung on this Kickstarter ladder would be the $500,000 stretch goal. If the game can attract $83,640 in the next ten days, WayForward has promised to add a new campaign to Shantae: Half-Genie Hero starring Risky Boots, a pirate captain who is as evil as she is adorable.

At the races, carpets begin to disappear one by one, and Shantae needs to track the culprit down while “racing for her life”. The chapter will be titled “Sequins of Unfortunate Events”. The chapter will be available for both Shantae and Risky modes.

WayForward Give Insight Into Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s Level Design. February 18, 2014 . 10:31am

WayForward have posted a brief update on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, their upcoming Shantae game that they crowdfunded via Kickstarter.




Quote:


WayForward have posted a brief update on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, their upcoming Shantae game that they crowdfunded via Kickstarter. In an update late last week, WayForward revealed how the game will be broken up.

“We’re designing 2 intro segments (one for Shantaeand one for Risky Boots), 5 main Chapters or “Worlds”, and an epic conclusion,” WayForward wrote on the game’s Kickstarter page.

“Some of these Worlds will be themed to the stretch goals you all made happen — racing on magic carpets in one case, tracking down the secret origins of Shantae’s new Guardian Genie Rival in the other. Each chapter will have its own enemies, music, effects, environments, and bosses which all get broken down into tasks, with time and money accounted for.”



Above is a look at brief concepts for the game’s worlds, documented in a sketchbook. And the image below is meant to illustrate the different kinds of environments being considered for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.



You can find more development details in the update post. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is in development for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
