Backer Rewards Extravaganza

Ultimate Edition PC codes for all!

Good day, Backers! Today we’re sending every Backer free Steam code for “Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Ultimate Edition” for use on Windows PC. This is a no-strings-attached free gift to say THANK YOU for everyone who participated in this campaign!

This is a great way for everyone to get the content they might have missed out on before.

We’d love for you to spread the fun around internet land - stream, post, and share your Shantae experiences to help us promote this world-wide launch of this newest edition of the game!

A few notes before you enjoy the game:

  • The “Drifter Blade” content is hidden in the current version, but it will become activated in our first game patch. We have been given a “thumbs up” from the creator of Hyper Light Drifter to extend it to this new version of the game (Thank you, Alx!)
  • Remember that this version contains a “Hall of Fame” section on the main menu. Any “Your Art In Game” entries can be quickly accessed from there
  • Credits can now be accessed from the Bonus Features menu. Show off your credit! Also note that any credit requests that were submitted to our Support Team in the last few months might not appear until the next update, due to the timing of submissions and updates.

As usual, watch your email and see Kickstarter Update #94 for help in retrieving your code. Thank you for being the best Backers ever!

Rewards Update!

Our physical rewards have started to arrive from their various manufacturers! Joy! Let's look at them one by one!

Lenticular Poster! - These turned out beautifully. This is our sample version, and we’re now waiting for the bulk order to be finalized. The poster comes pre-framed and individually wrapped. We hope you love it!

T-shirts! - These have been printed, and are now being sorted at the warehouse. The print quality is spectacular- they turned out great :) Huge thanks to Kentoo for this awesome design!

Art Book! - We’re over the moon with the quality of this book!! It’s hardcover, compact, and thick at 120 pages (think autograph book sized). The pages are high gloss with amazing print quality that makes every page sing. Xseed’s manufacturers were a huge help with this - they even got the animated dancing Shantae down in the corner, flip-book style. As you can see in these images, it contains an entire section for “Backers Only”, marked by the purple header. In these pages, we talk about the fan designed enemies, votes, and “Your-Face-In-Game” cameos and show off some artwork that you may not have seen before.

A note to collectors: The “Backer Exclusive Artbook” is the definitive version that comes with everything. There is also a soft cover “Day One” version from Xseed that excludes the Backer content, and a near-identical version from PQube (only company logos vary), with light tan cover artwork rather than blue. Our Japanese partner Amuzio will be offering an abridged version in Japan as well. So, four books in total, but only your version contains the bonus content. Be sure to call up your non-Backer friends, and say “neener neener” to them.

Coin! - We don’t have photos yet, but we expect to get an update from the manufacturer soon!

Music CD! - Here’s a look at the CD cover art, which is being manufactured by our pals at Limited Run! This contains all of the music in the retail releases (AKA “Risky Beats” edition), plus Bonus tracks for Backers!

Digital Artbook! - We’re updating our WayForward servers (sorry to anyone recently trying to get their digital soundtrack or wallpaper). We expect to be sending out the digital artbook after that’s been resolved!

What’s the Timing?

To minimize shipping costs, we’ll be sending out orders once everything has been delivered to the warehouse. We’re getting help from Limited Run, who will be handling the fulfillment for us (it’s a lot of work, and we’re grateful for their help). Before anything ships, we’ll give you another Update to talk about tracking numbers, customer service, and anything else you’ll need to receive your rewards! 

We’re so close!

      We're still working very hard to get all our physical goods produced in the best quality and out to our backers in a timely manner. If you have any further questions or concerns (ie change of address) please contact our support@wayforward.com staff. Thank you for your patience.

      It's been more than 3 mounths since the last update. Is the production of Coins that causes the delay or lack of quantity of some products?
      That worries me. (-_-")

      So, am I just imagining things, or wasn't the Tinkerbat transformation and Shantae Blue pants supposed to be Backer Exclusive?

    4. WayForward Creator on

      @Mark - We're still waiting on some physical goods. Once we have them we will let you know!

    5. Mark Daley on

      any idea when we'll get another update on these?

      Disregard my previous comment, looked back through tiers and I don't qualify.

      I was just reviewing the backer credits and didn't see my name. Is there any reason I was left out of the thousands of names. Kinda disappointing that my name won't be on my physical copy even if it gets added.

      Hi! I'm a backer and I've never activated a steam code.

      Please can I have a GOG code instead of it? Thanks. :)

      @Giga - Those are DLC for the base SHGH game. If you were to download the Ultimate Edition game, you would not need to use those codes unless you'd like to add the DLC to other copy of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero that does not have that DLC connected to it yet.

    11. giga-ganon on

      So i have code for these that i never activated before on steam!

      Pirate Queen's Quest Steam

      Friends to the End Steam

      Color Swap/Drifter Blade Steam

      Costume Pack Steam

      If i use the ultimate edition code, everything there will be included then?

      Thank you all for your patience while waiting for answers! Always remember our support@wayforward.com team answers questions really quick as well if you have questions in the future :)

      @Juan Vargas - Please contact our support@wayforward.com staff if you think you've run into a glitch or a bug. They can be sure to ask the right team member internally and find an answer for you.

      @Geoffrey "Zilof" Stoop - We think they are the same, but we're asking internally for you.

      @James Lofshult ((Solav)) - Unfortunately SHGH was never slated to release on 3DS (because is HD).

      @Adam Hammer - We’re updating our WayForward servers, so some links for rewards are down. We're looking into updating those, so no worries. Just check back in about a week or so.

      @Serge.EXE - It has some menu upgrades and a Blue Swimsuit.

    13. Sarah Jesness on

      Pretty sweet! I just gave the code away to a friend since I backed with $15 and have a copy of the game myself. I'd like to try the Tinkerbat transformation but it seems like a waste to use the code just for that extra bit of DLC.

    14. Juan Vargas on

      Hey anyone else having controller issues with the ultimate edition. I've tried playing the game and it dosen't detect that I have a controller connected. I use the 8bitdo NES30 Pro, and have tried using both the bluetooth and wired connection and neither way works. I have to resort to using Joy2Key to play the game with it.

    15. Samuel Rainville on

      Thank you for all this content :) you guys are the best!

      Just curious, since I couldn't afford the hardcover version of the artbook ( my tier only included the digital ).
      Is the digital artbook also not going to have as much content, or will it have akin to what the definitive hardcover will?
      If not I totally understand ( and that's completely reasonable, I didn't put in as much during the campaign ), but figured would ask since the digital artbook wasn't really touched upon in the email other than its not ready to send yet due to server updates.

      Thank you kindly for any and all input!

      Count me in with Serge. I have an account I use for Steam Family Sharing (so I can play without kicking someone else off), and I'd readily use my code there so long as I don't miss out on anything from the codes I've used so far. What's missing (like Tinkerbat and such, I assume), and can it be purchased separately soon?

    18. Joshua on

      While I won't be getting the soundtrack since I didn't back that high....the other Shantae soundtracks on CD published by Limited Run were upsampled from a lossy (probably Mp3) source, despite there being true lossless for FREE at Bandcamp. I surely hope this won't be the case here.

    19. Matt Murphy on

      Just when I pre-ordered the Switch version, you guys are so kind enough to give this to us! :D

      Bless you, Wayforward! Bless you!

    20. Santos on

      Thank you WayForward for everything you have done for us! You truly have gone above and beyond!

      @WayForward Wonderful! Thank you for answering my question! :)

      It's a bummer, getting this as a bonus...now I wish I got it for 3DS instead XD if I can still get the kickstarter stuff for 3DS would be rocking but oh well.

    23. Gibrán Majalca on

      This is a relief since I have to sell my Wii U....

    24. Devon Archer on

      @Serge I'm wondering that too, the Physical ultimate edition has goodies in it but is there actually anything different with the digital version?

    25. Adam Hammer on

      Well, I might need to try and get a soundtrack CD somehow. I realized I forgot to download the Soundtrack from backerlit, and it's link has long since expired.

    26. Serge.EXE on

      Will the Ultimate Edition contain anything that's not in the Normal Edition + All DLC? I backed for the PC version, so unless there's difference in content, I'd like to know I can give away the code to a friend worry free!

    27. AJ Ferolie on

      AH my Slimegal! Awesome to see she'll be in the book! Can't wait for all this!

      So do you guys have any plans after you are all done with this game?

    28. WayForward Creator on

      @kiwikenobi - The free Ultimate Edition Steam Codes will be free to do with what you'd like. If you'd like to give yours away you may. It our gift to you :)

    29. kiwikenobi on

      The Steam code is for PC only? Not Mac? If so, is there any reason I can't share the code with someone else who does have a PC? Or should I just let it go unused if I'm not using it myself, as the backer? Not sure what's better for you guys, as the game makers.

    30. Aaron Chan Wei Chuen on

      This is my most valuable backing in Kickstarter! Thank you for giving out so many rewards and congratulations on your success.
