Digital Art Book is Ret-2-Go!

Posted by WayForward (Creator)

Hear ye, hear ye, all Backers at Tier $35 and above! Your Digital Art Book Reward is ready for download!

To claim it, log into your Backerkit account and click the art book download link! It's a big file, so please be patient while it downloads.

This version of the art book contains an additional 20 pages made especially for Backers (120 pages total)! The book was created with the help of Xseed, who did an incredible job of presenting our favorite parts of the game (as well as the campaign). We hope you’ll treasure the digital art book as much as we do!

For those who pledged at the $200 Tier, you will be receiving a physical hardcover version of the Backer Art Book as well! We will send those out as soon as we have all of the items manufactured and ready to go. Thanks for your patience, and enjoy the digital version in the meantime!

If you missed the art book tier completely, an abridged paperback version of the book is available from Xseed (North America) and Pqube (Europe) included the “Day One Edition” of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. Please be aware that this version does not include the Backer-Exclusive section.

Thanks, and happy art book-browsing!

      Hello @WiredRM - Unfortunately we do not have a date as of yet. We're still waiting on some backer items to be completed so we can send out the rewards all together. However, we hoping that will be done sooner rather than later. As of right now, however, if you do need to to change your address, please contact our staff! Thanks!

      Hi, is there an update on the timing of shipping out physical rewards? I'm going to be moving by the end of July, I'm hoping it arrives by then. o.o;

      Oh. I was unable to reach that tier during the campaign, but I was hoping it would be made available on Steam or something sometime down the line (Even if it didn't include the 20 extra pages for backers).

      Too bad. =/

      Hello Neo! Unfortunately the digital artbook is available for backers who pledged at a certain level only. It will not be released publicly.

      Sorry for the dumb question but, it seems that I don't have a BackerKit account. If I create one, how will I be able to "link" it to my Kickstater pledge?

      @Christophe Hermans - There was another version of the artbook made for the Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Ultimate Day One Edition retail version. However, it does not include everything from the backer version. There are some fun things only for backers in the backer version.

      @Nick Jones - It is and it isn't. The backer version has some things the Ultimate Day One Edition does not have.

      Took longer than retail, and more expensive, pathetic

      Is this the same book as in the Ultimate Edition for Switch? If so I picked it up Tuesday and it is well done.

      @christophe not to sound rude as most posts in the nature of mine sound but did u read the post by them? It clearly says you can buy the artbook it just wont include the 20 backer pages :D

    12. Christophe Hermans on

      "This version of the art book..." -> Does it mean there is a version everyone can buy ?
      (I'm just a tier 25$ ad I regret it now :D)
