Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Hits Nintendo Switch This Summer

With the massive success of the Nintendo Switch, more and more companies are hopping on board and announcing new games. One of the more predictable ones is Shantae: Half-Genie Hero from WayForward games. They have a long history of publishing games on Nintendo platforms and we figured this would be an easy port since they’ve already put the legwork in on 3DS and Wii U.


Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be launching soon – this summer! It will include HD Rumble and of course you now get to take the game anywhere you want. WayForward will publish the game on the eShop and XSEED will be bringing it out at retail as well. No details on pricing or what’s included, but those announcements shouldn’t be far off and we’ll keep you updated. For now, enjoy the launch trailer that accompanied the game a few months ago when it came out on other systems:
