The lights are on
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero ended its Kickstarter campaign on Friday earning $776,084, in pledges towards its $400,000 goal and another $35,878.00 through Paypal donations.
It met its $400,000 goal near the end of September, and earned more over the following weeks to eventually meet four of its nine stretch goals. In total, developer WayForward walked away from its Shantae campaign with $811,962 from Kickstarter and Paypal to devote towards the development of Half-Genie Hero.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is planned for release late next year on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC.
Our TakeIt's very exciting to see Shantae meet is goal and more. Shantae has always been an underrated series, so I am glad to see its sequel planned for release on so many platforms.

We need to get that little extra via Paypal for Hero mode.
awesome, contributed to this kickstarter, and can not wait to play this next year. My second favorite developer, so it was a no brainer for me
Man, They DOUBLED their Goal? That's Awesome! I'm getting this game, no a doubt in my mind
Kyle, might help to add that PayPal donations still count towards the total. So anyone who didn't get the chance to donate while the Kickstarter campaign was up might be able to donate now or even a little bit later if they like. I don't remember what date they're going to stop accepting PayPal donations, though.
Yea the paypal donations are still up for another 2 months I think.
Another one I backed. Now, I would like to see more INDIES and small studios making news on Kickstarter, instead of the established guys with money.
Release the 2nd and 4th one on the 3DS and then I'm interested.
That's right WayForward, stick with Shantae, and PLEASE stay away from Silent Hill.
In all seriousness though, nice to see that they made their goal.
Really happy they got the money I have to say,cannot wait for the new game.
And now I play the waiting game...
I was glad to see the costume swap stretch goal make it. I'm looking forward to it.
I'm glad I kicked in.
