It’s Time for Physical Rewards!

Posted by WayForward (Creator)

Hello Backers!  

Today is the day you’ve all been waiting for!! At long last it is time to distribute PHYSICAL REWARDS!! We’re so excited we can hardly contain ourselves!! The coins, t-shirts, lenticular posters, hardcover artbook, and music CDs are at the Limited Run warehouse, ready to ship to Backers at every physical reward tier!

From this day forward, there will be TWO SUPPORT teams here to help you out. Make sure you’re contacting the correct team, depending on the kind of help you need:

For PHYSICAL REWARD SUPPORT contact Limited Run Games:

For DIGITAL REWARDS or GENERAL SUPPORT contact WayForward’s support team:

Finally, thank you for backing this project, and for being patient with us. We know the rewards took a very long time to manufacture (and to get through customs!). We took great care to make each one special, and our manufacturing partners went all out to deliver the finest quality possible. Huge thanks to Xseed, YesAnime, CoinsForAnything, Handsome Devil, and Limited Run Games for your dedication to quality and for doing everything possible to ensure a timely delivery.

We hope that these goodies will bring a smile to your face every time you see them, as a reminder of the time we spent building this project together! Thank you!

      Just got my box!

      -The t shirt is really nice! Just not one I can wear during my normal routine, lol.
      -The Poster in the frame is surprisingly really awesome! I'm not the type to put stuff on my walls, but I can stand it up on a table
      -The artbook had a little funky smell (ink?) that disappeared quickly, and the print quality is great!
      -While I already have the OST digitally, I like the CD and I'm always happy to support Kaufman!
      -The coin is neat, although I have no idea what I'm going to do with it.

      All in all, I'm really happy with this whole project and I look forward to your next project! (especially if it has more Patty Wagon in it)

      I got the coin yesterday, its very nice and quite heavy, and it feels likes its solid bronze.

      now If I can just get steam to work with my controller i'll finally be able to play.

      Finally hitting that checkbox on Kickstarter for all rewards received was ultimately satisfying. Despite it being almost 5 years after the initial launch of the campaign, I am happy.

      AND! I can finally start playing the game now that I have EVERYTHING I wanted! Yes, even with my hype, I was committed to not playing until I had all the goods. Today was a good day indeed and I can play it on both PC and Switch.

      Just wanted to stop by and let the team at Way Forward know that I received all my physical rewards at the level i backed the project at. Theyre cooler than i ever imagined,and Im super happy with the level of quality. I have been very pleased with my backing of Shantae: HGH and will def keep an eye out on the next project you run through KS should you decide to go that route again. Cheers! :D

      @Fernando - Good to hear! Yea, we sent out a few reminder e-mails for people who hadn't updated their info. We tried to be as thorough as possible to get everyone taken care of. Hope you enjoy your rewards and thank you for your pledge!

    6. Fernando Costa

      I actually received an email about confirming my shipping address earlier this year. I just wanted to be safe, but my address is correct and my order has shipped. Thanks.

      Just got the email notifying that these were sent. Not bad. Thanks for the update.

    8. WayForward Creator on

      @Fernando Costa - A survey was sent out a few years ago. If you believe you may have not filled out that information, please contact our support staff (

      I just got my shipping confirmation from Limited Run Games - Hurray!

      It took me a few minutes to figure out what exactly it was, though, as the description in the e-mail was simply "Original Soundtrack CD" - didn't even mention the name of the game. I order stuff from them fairly regularly, so this threw me for a bit of a loop.

      Looking forward to getting it!

      Despite the long wait, I hope there will be another Shantae kickstarter some time in the future. I'll be sure to back it just as I did this project.

      Sure, I had hoped a bit more from this project and would have loved to see some of the ideas "such as skill coins" come in to fruitition. But overall, I'm glad we got this game even though it wasn't as grand of an experience as Pirate's curse was.

      Hopefully next adventure will be bigger, better and well... Less linear. More like first Shantae game. I loved to explore the world and in next 1/2 Hero I would like to see more towns we can visit.

      @wayforward - yes thanks for the clarification. Its been so long of a wait that truthfully, I'm not even looking forward to getting my goods in the mail. I just want to get my money's worth and be done with this Kickstarter. Here's hoping everything goes smoothly.

    12. Thomas Sausner Jr. on

      about time, HUZZAH!!!

    13. Olli Johannes Suvinen on

      About bloody time!
      Can't wait to get me coin.

    14. Fernando Costa

      Will there be surveys for shipping address confirmation?

    15. Leon (SHANTAE & MN9 Brought Me) on

    17. David Weise on

      I've heard good things about Limited Run Games before. I'm looking forward to this now :)

      @John Vo - If you have a question about your backer info, you can contact so they can look up your information and see what the steps would be if that info needs to be adjusted.

      @Mark Daley - All correspondence about physical goods will be done by Limited Run. If you have any questions about specifics, you can contact them here:

    19. Mark Daley on

      so will we be getting an e-mail from limited run games with confirmation on our stuff being shipped?

      Nice! I've been waiting for this stuff and it's exciting now that it's getting closer and closer to arriving here. The excitement levels are definitely off the charts right now

    22. WayForward Creator on

      @Michael - We have given Limited Run the information they need to ship your goods. However if you have a question, comments or concerns about your physical goods for any reason, those are best addressed by Limited Run as they are now in charge of that information.

      Does that answer your question?

      I swear, just last month I was thinking about the Shantae coin and wondered when it would appear. Big thanks everyone.

      I am curious if Limited Run Games will contact us or do we contact them? Sorry to pester about this, just want to make sure I'm clear on things. Thanks again

      Was actually just thinking earlier today... damn, I wish I had my Shantae Coin.
      I might have been flipping the coin that came with my copy of Octopath Traveler at the time.

      Michael Levy on

      Sorry to have to ask you to baby bird feed us instructions but...are you saying I have to reach out to limited run games to get my physical rewards? Or are they going to reach out to us? A little bit more details would've been nice to know.

    26. AlexFlame116 on

      Whoa LimitedRunGames is helping out with this? I must have missed the memo! That's awesome!

    27. Chris J Capel on

      I just want to know if you guys are going to do another Kickstarter - this has been one of the most rewarding ones I've ever backed!

    28. Matthew Dillman on

      I can’t wait to explain my shirt to people giving me weird looks.
