      @wayforward Is it possible to pay you the difference between my pledge and the book reward so I could get the Book?

      Hello, I also would like to know the content of this ultimate version and if you would agree if it were to be gifted to a friend.

      By the way, thank you for your works on this game :)

      I'm with WeeabooJudas on this one. There's still one person in my circle of friends that wants the game and hasn't gotten it. I'd like to give them the Ultimate Edition code, but I am a little sad that I'm going to miss whatever wasn't in the original+dlc.

      There's no way to upgrade my pledge to get the book and shirt is there?

    5. WeeabooJudas 3 days ago

      Is there anything in the ultimate version that wasn't in a prior DLC? I'd feel like a waste if I activated the key myself without checking.

      Nevermind, I forgot it turns to night when you replay a stage so the background would just be pitch black at that point of night.

      What kind of shampoo does Shantae use?

    8. WayForward Creator on April 9

      If you believe you've found a bug or an error in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, please be sure to send it along to our staff. Please send as much info, screeshots, ect as you can to help them look into the possible issue.

    9. Val Modulator on April 5

      Also are the backgrounds supposed to be missing when you replay the chase scene with Wilbur after completing the entire desert stage?

    10. Val Modulator on April 5

      One thing i'm not keen on is when I get a game over, and I continue , I start back with the exact same health I started the level as opposed to full health.

    11. Trevor McD - Day 0 Shantae Fan on April 4

      INDEED!! I'm so glad to see all this over the past 5 years, what a ride!
      Did anyone else dive straight into the ninja mode like I just did?!? Shantae - NINJA GAIDEN HERO!

    12. Ray Haughton on April 3

      Wished we could've have funded more for full cutscenes and voice acting, but I'm glad we got as complete a package as all this. Glad to have been part of this campaign.

      Has anyone made Shantae on VRchat?

      Time to get the Shantae for Smash hype train rolling again.

    15. Val Modulator on March 8

      If Shantaes in the next Smash bros game , i'll legit die happy.

      @Paul - The coin is yet to go out, however our past few updates have discussed that we will be sending out physical rewards very soon.

      Am I the only one who has yet to receive the commemorative collectors coin?

    18. WayForward Creator on March 5

      @Neo - We have no news on a GoG release at this time, but we'll let you know if that changes.

      @Cory - We get this question a lot and we love our fans enthusiasm about it. At this point in time we do not have anything to announce on the matter. However, we are always working to make our games accessible to as many fans as possible.

    19. ExSheex Vandole on February 24

      Please be sure to make an update to this Kickstarter campaign whenever you are ready to make another game through Kickstarter, so we're all informed that we have another game to back! Excited that physical rewards are coming along; can't wait! ^_^

    20. Cory Clearman on February 19

      Have you guys ever considered releasing the previous three Shantae games and all the games in the "Mighty" series on the Switch? I would definitely pay $60 (or more) for a compilation of all seven of those games on one cartridge.

      Hi! Any chance to see "Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition" on GOG?

      I'm a backer. But I've never tried this game. I haven't steam and I would like to have a DRM-Free version on my GOG account. Please give us a real gift - GOG version! :)

    22. Pascal Leroi on February 1

      I just wanted to say that I really loved the game with alle the DLC (eventhough Friends to the End drove me insane on some (read, a lot :P) of occasions). Besides the awesome game(and the love it gave my Wii U), I think you handled the kickstarter extremely well. It was a joy to be part of this ^^ On to your next kickstarter :P

    23. WayForward Creator on January 30

      @Brendan Robeson - Please contact if you having any issues with your backer codes. They can help figure out your issue via looking up your account info.

      @Val Modulator - There is an announced physical version of the Ultimate Edition in the EU, however we have yet to announce a physical edition in the US. Stay tuned, we'll let you know if that changes.

      @Shaun Wightman - All Physical rewards are to go out at the same time. Before they go out we will be having an update showing off more about them. Thank you for your patience.

    24. Shaun Wightman on January 30

      I know they had an update on the book. Has there been any news about the t-shirt?

    25. Val Modulator on January 29

      Will there be a PS4 version of the ultimate edition?
      And will it come with the color swaps and drifter blade?

    26. Brendan Robeson on January 29

      *I have played the game but can’t on my Wii U with the backer code

    27. Brendan Robeson on January 29

      I haven’t had a chance to play the game yet. Finally tried to redeem my Wii U code but it doesn’t work on an Australian System. And now the exclusive backer DLC isn’t exclusive anymore...

    28. Val Modulator on January 19

      Pity I only signed up for the Steam codes, alas.

    29. DB on January 8

      ok, this is getting regoddamneddiculous.
      what the hell is going on with ps4 codes? i tried being patient but it's been three weeks. i mean, comeon. how hard can it be to get codes? this stuff happens every single day for the last decade.

    30. WayForward Creator on January 8

      @Denison - All codes for SHGH and Pirate Queen's Quest on PS4 should already be in your Backerkit. If they are not, please contact and let them know the e-mail address associated with your pledge and them can help you further!

    31. Jim Boyer on January 7

      If the ps4 codes are not going to come out soon can we get codes for a different platform?

      Bob M on January 5

      @WayForward With all due respect, your December 7th update lacked any kind of specificity or any explanation for why you couldn't have been working on the physical rewards all along. Saying that things are "moving ahead" is not helpful. You are very, very late on delivery at this point compared to many other Kickstarters I have backed, most of them from far smaller companies. You need to provide a specific timeline for when things are coming and make it a real priority to get everything done on a timely basis.

    33. Denison Guizelini on January 4

      Hello about the SHGH, PQQ, FttE for Ps4?

    34. WayForward Creator on January 2

      Physical Rewards have always been a priority! You can read more about where we are in the process of physical good here:

      So Physical Rewards are a 2018 priority?

      Hey I just wanna say I really appreciate what you guys have done for us backers. When I backed you guys I was only ever entitled to the game but you guys not only have given me all the dlcs, but have tried to get them to me before worldwide release. In a world with loot boxes and dlcs it's nice to see a developer with some dignity.

      You guys are aces in my book!

    37. ExSheex Vandole on December 22

      Thanks WayForward, you guys are awesome! I know it's not your fault that the codes for PS4 and Vita haven't arrived yet (looking at you, Sony), so it's cool you decided to comp us all codes for Steam in the meantime. It's things like that that make you stand out as a stand-up company. Love the Shantae games; this one being no exception. Patiently waiting for those codes, but until then I'll be enjoying the holidays with my family. Happy Holidays to you all!

    38. WayForward Creator on December 22

      Hey guys! Sometimes we don't get a chance to read all the comments here, if you send your questions, comments and concerns to our Support Team ( they can better assist you. They have access to our Backerkit database and up to the minute information along with communication internally for questions they don't have answers for.

      Thank you for your patience and understanding! Have a Happy Holiday Tinkerbackers!

      So... where's the North American Wii U DLC codes? This is getting ridiculous.

      Michael Levy on December 21

      Hey gang...weren't the Wii U (NA) codes for the newest DLC as well as the color swap DLC coming out today? I could've sworn I read that. Can you update us on the wait time? Thanks!

      Lord Malachite on December 21

      It's been 9 days and still not even an explanation for those of us who backed this game and are still waiting on codes for this DLC. It is now nearly Christmas and still not even a word on when we might expect them. You need to treat your backers with more respect.

      Alex Kingsbury on December 19

      I've really tried to be patient this time about the codes but this is getting ridiculous. Like it's been a week since I could have just bought it and not only did other platforms get the dlc codes early but they got another bonus code in the meantime. I know it's not entirely your fault but I also can't help but feel that at least some of the blame lies with you, especially given this happened with the last dlc yet I guess nothing was learned other than you don't have to apologize because most of the backers won't blame you.

    43. Matthew Bowie on December 19

      The US (We) made you, Wayfoward! What gives?!

    44. Missing avatar

      Jeff Conser on December 18

      Where are the rest of the codes? The ones for console gamers in the US?

    45. Ronald Law on December 16

      Is there any way I can redo my backer selection so I can get everything for the ps4 instead. I'd even be willing to pay the same amount again. WiiU kicked the bucket and I don't feel like spending the money to buy a new one.

    46. Val Modulator on December 15

      Aw now I want a PS4 code for my goods.

    47. Tyler James Sherwood on December 14

      @BSL i got the steam code as well thinking it was a ps4 code too XD guess gotta wait for ps4 version

      BSL on December 14

      "So.... anyone else get a steam code for the friends till the end dlc but it was labeled as the PS4 code? Cause I did and I can’t use it on my preferred platform....."

      Re-read what it said. It confused me as well. If you look at your backer kit account you'll see all PS4 codes have an additional Steam code with the word COMP in front of it.

      COMP = Complimentary

      Apparently they haven't gotten the PS4 codes out yet (or apparently some other platforms) as well.
