WayForward and XSEED have finally given a release date for the upcoming release of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. The game was successfully funded through Kickstarter earning more than $776,000 back in 2014. The title will be available at retail and digital stores on December 20th. Wii U owners will have to wait just a little bit longer as the game will be available for that system one week later on the 27th. Not only that, but there will also be a special “Risky Beats” edition of the game for all platforms that will be available for $29.99. This package will include a CD with 30 songs from the soundtrack.
This is the fourth installment of the series and the first to be developed in HD from the ground up. It will be available for the Wii U, PS4, and Playstation Vita. Check out this trailer for the game and a couple of screenshots to get you ready for the upcoming release.
