Shantae is Ret-2-Go!
December 20th is Digital Launch!
This is it - the moment you’ve all been waiting for! The digital version of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero now has an official release date of December 20!
This release includes:
- Steam for Window PC - worldwide
- Xbox One - worldwide
- PS4 & Vita - North America & Europe
- Wii U - North America & Europe (awaiting final confirmation)
If you’re curious about the retail versions, look to Xseed for an announcement shortly! Spread the word! Half-Genie Hero is just a couple of weeks away!
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! We’ll start distributing Backer Codes next week! Keep an eye on your inbox (and make sure you’re looking at the email address you funded with)!
Please note that for some consoles, the codes are TIME STAMPED to activate on December 12th. So, when you enter the code, it might not activate immediately. This works just a like a timed release for any digital pre-order. If the clock flips to December 13th Pacific Standard Time, and your code still doesn’t work, then it’s time to hit up WayForward support.
On that topic - We expect WayForward Support to be slammed for the first several days, as this is the biggest indie game launch we’ve ever had! So if you’re looking for an immediate answer to your question, we’d suggest checking out our WayForums first to see if other Backers have experienced and/or solved your particular concern. Shantae Backers have been a great help to one another when dealing with up-to-the-minute info. If you go the WayForward support route, please understand that we’re expecting a lot of email traffic, and it will take some time to get to everyone.
If you love the game and just want to send a friendly note, please do so via social media, and help us keep the support lines as clear as possible!
We will distribute review codes to gaming press once our Backers have been served. We expect those to go out sometime between Dec 14 and Dec 20.
Thanks again to all of our Backers! We can't wait for you all to play the game. And thank you, too, to Early Access Backers who have been streaming the game and helping to promote over the last few days!
December 20th is your day to celebrate the launch of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero!
