WayForward has released the first screenshots of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.
The game, announced yesterday, is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. It’s so far earned $123,000 of its $400,000 goal.
View the screenshots at the gallery.
Here’s hoping that it’ll reach $1.3M.
It’s a shame it had to come out at the same time as Mighty No. 9. I’m afraid it won’t even reach 1 million.
Kinda on the fence with this one. I like 2D platformers and the visuals are nice, like a western style NIS look, but the gameplay and level design look very basic. Platformers need some serious difficulty to interest me.
I’ll donate $40 when I see a concept art with a darker skinned Shantae. I know they said that the colors were a little washed unintentionally and they’ll try to fix it but I’ll still need to see it before I put down my money.
I think they changed their avatar. Definitely darker compared to all the other media now: https://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/avatars/7333262/HERO_ICON.medium.jpg?1377276291
They already updated her skintone due to feedback from backers:
They shoulda done the Voltron game…
What do you guys think? Is the Virtual Console GBC Shantae worth the purchase? I had never really heard of the game until I saw it on the eShop.
This looks like a poor, American version of Monster World IV.
The Japanese never want to offend. Their modesty is admirable, but a little insincere.
The Japanese need more mavericks like this!
Artstyle looks very Disgaea-ish,
For those who care, I’ve asked and was told that ALL versions of the game will run at native 1080p and 60 frames per second.
this looks neat, shame that they choose a poor timing, now with mighty no.9 the same target demographic for this game is donating/donated all they can for the inafune game, and i wanted the one million goal so much…….
Good grief, posted it on the wrong article… D;
Anyhoo, I wish the art design was more like some of the old art. I saw someone mention the old art and new art being different… and that made me actually look at it. And now I can’t help but just want the old design.
I like the new design on it’s own mind you, but definitely prefer this to it.
Why haven’t someone made a Anime out of this?
I mean they have made a Anime about other shit like Girlz und GTFO
To be honest, I prefer MightyNº9 over Shantae, but I don’t have money to fund both, so I threw my money to this one.
Hope it helps.
Wayforward has listened to the Kickstarter feedback and officially updated Shantae’s skintone palette:
