Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
Last week, WayForward announced that the platform selection period for the Shantae: Half-Genie Hero download codes was now over. If you thought this meant the release date was to be announced pretty soon… you were right!
WayForward announced today that Shantae: Half-Genie Hero would be released on December 20th in Europe and North America. It looks like they’re still awaiting the final confirmation, but unless something goes wrong, December 20th will be the day! As such, we have already updated the Upcoming Releases page!
What about the retail version, you ask? Well, it looks like XSEED will make an announcement pretty soon, so stay tuned! Finally, if you’re a backer, you should get your download code sometime next week!
