Have a question?
This is a quick Question to Wayforward. First I want to thank you for game thus far and am looking forward to the Risky Boots DLC with baited breath. However I did back past the $80 mark and so far I have yet to receive my coin. I know it takes time for rewards to be sent out, but I was curious if you have an expect date for sending them out.
Hey Taco! :D
Oh, dont mind me, just posting a fan art in celebration of the switch ver.
-A Very enthusiastic "Taco" ;)
boy, sure has been a while posting on Here again?
Loving Shantae 1/2 genie hero on Switch.
They said in the latest update that they are being worked on. They'll probably tell us more in the next update.
Physical rewards? When are they coming?
Considering that the last update reads: "ALSO: Please remember that with all DLC, you will receive the code (or codes) for the platform(s) that you previously selected. WayForward has to actually purchase these DLC codes in advance, and for this reason we are unable to freely swap codes between platforms. Thanks for understanding."

Should mean you won't get the Tinkerbat transformation on the switch and'll only be available for the platform you selected.
Will the backer exclusive Tinkerbat Transformation be available on the Switch Version? I originally backed for the WiiU version, but I sold my WiiU since then to get a switch.
I'm getting the Switch version. I don't care that i gotta buy the DLC. The ability to play the game on the go justifies it.
If you want the Switch version, you'll have to buy it and buy its DLC.
You'll have to buy the DLC like on all platforms unless you are a backer in which you would get the DLC for free but all this (backer or not) doesn't apply to the Switch.
Will we be able to change our delivery address when the physical awards are made available? I've moved to another country since so hope this is possible.
Is the DLC free for all versions, backer or not? I got the game on Wii U but want to get it on Switch now. However I'm hesitant to buy it on there if the DLC isnt included and theres no way to transfer any backer rewards to that version
If they do happen to get physical copies made for the Switch, I'll reconsider and buy it.
Josh is right, they're discussing it with XSEED https://twitter.com/WayForward/status/871879980879302656
That's up to XSEED.
Also will this come out physically?
If they're charging for the campaigns it's safe to assume they'll charge for the costumes.
Hmm.... I assume the Costume Modes will be paid DLC?
Aside from the buying DLC, Hardcore Mode is the only free content for Half-Genie Hero?
The backer exclusives won't be supported by and will only be available for the platform you selected.
I think it's safe to assume that the Campaign/Costume stretch goal DLC will be included on every platform but you'll have to buy it separately. The backer exclusives (tinkerbat transformation, blue shantae, classic risky, drifter sword)

Wow that was a lot faster than expected. While i don't mind getting the game again on the Switch ( 1/2 genie hero on the go ftw) i am curious about the backer stuff and the DLC. Did i read right that it includes the Risky mode?
According to the Nintendo Switch eShop, there are 150 different HD rumbles effects for the game.
June 8th for the Switch release of Half-Genie Hero!
It seems another game with Shantae is coming to Switch. http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/44723/action-rpg-indivisible-releasing-on-switch-in-2018
No physical rewards have been sent yet nor is there a date for when they will be sent although it was discussed in the last kickstarter update.
Wayforward will not provide you with a physical copy of the game because your Kickstarter pledge was for a digital copy. If you want a physical copy you'll need to purchase that separately.
Anyone know when those who pledged at the collectors edition level are going to get their rewards? I assume it comes with a Physical copy of the game, for the system we asked it to be for yes?
No physical rewards have been sent yet, according to the last update they're still working on it.
Has the COLLECTOR'S EDITION been sent out yet?
The blue costume hasn't been added yet and will be added in an upcoming update, you can read the last kickstarter update for more info on that.
I have a silly question for which I feel like I should already know the answer, but how do you get the blue costume? Did I miss a download code or something?
I know us backers won't get backer content on Switch but I wish I did.
Love the idea of Shantae 1/2 Genie on the Switch. However like the others i'm curious about the status of backer perks. Also what's with Shantae's colors? Will it automatically include more content?
They never said they'd support it in the original kickstarter pitch and considering they didn't allow backers to change their digital codes for retail copies instead you're smart to assume they won't support it.
You also won't get the Campaign/Costume DLC for free on the switch considering the note in the last update...
"WayForward has to actually purchase these DLC codes in advance, and for this reason we are unable to freely swap codes between platforms. Thanks for understanding."
It would be nice if they did but they shouldn't feel inclined to do so. Supporting the switch was a business decision to attract a new audience, not to clog their support up with backers wanting their digital exclusives on another platform.
Almost pretty much the same reason why I shouldn't get the Switch version as well. A majority of us have already gotten the game on Wii U, PS4, XB1 or PC so it wouldn't be worth getting it again especially if we don't get the free DLC stuff.
Funny how they announced it two hours before you said that
I'd love the game on Switch, but as a backer I have to admit I'll probably pass on the Switch version if it means not getting any of my free backer content on Switch. Both in the form of backer exclusive rewards that aren't here yet like Blue Shantae/Retro Risky/Drifter Blade, and in terms of DLC like Risky Mode and other playable characters which I'm given to understand will be free for backers on their original platform but I'm unclear if I'd have to pay extra to get these on Switch.
Honestly, I'd love the game on my Switch. I originally backed it for the Vita, but haven't really gotten around to playing it that much. My Switch though, comes with me everywhere, so I'd have no excuses.
Well regardless, they hinted at something with the Switch in the last update. If they go forward for a month exclusive DLC for the Switch version, we're all going to get upset. At this point, I could care less if Half-Genie Hero comes to Switch or not. I mean I am glad I backed the game but wasn't too fond of the whole game itself. Maybe the DLC for Risky and Shantae's friends might change my mind.
I'd prefer for Wayforward deliver what they have planned for the game rather than adding new platforms and making content not described in their kickstarter, project creep is bad. I'm also baffled at how the blue costume hasn't been released in this 6 month period, it's literally a pallet swap, can't say i'm all that excited for it considering i've already played through the entirety of Shantae's campaign, too little too late.
Shantae Half-Genie Hero on Switch might have a one month exclusive DLC that all other versions have to wait for. Nintendo won't allow the game the way it is now on the platform unless there is something new to the game that isn't on other platforms. Nintendo allowed Shovel Knight with its Specter Knight DLC month exclusive but wouldn't allow Axiom Verge because that game was the same game as all other versions of it.
I actually forgot about the physical rewards. Lol. :p
Lets hope we get news on the next update :3
I guess physical rewards are more of a side project while the companies main focus is on game's dlc and updates.
Is there not going to be an update this month just like January? What's the deal with the physical rewards
They've only delivered the Desktop wallpaper, game downloads, and digital soundtrack so far. Physical and digital Kickstarter exclusives will hopefully be talked about in the next kickstarter update at the minimum. We get them monthly / bi-monthly so we're due for one relatively soon.
