Hot off the release of Duck Tales: Remastered, developer WayForward is finding crowd funding success on Kickstarter. With 10 days left to go, the campaign for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero has hit its mark.

The campaign goal of $400,000 was passed earlier this afternoon, with the current total sitting at over $403,000. The effort will see Shantae: Half-Genie Hero on Wii U, PS3, PS4, Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Steam. 

There are a number of stretch goals in place that will see a variety of additional content offerings. The first kicks in at $500,000 and features an entire campaign as Shantae's nemesis, Risky Boots.

You can check out the entire campaign on the Kickstarter page and read up on the upcoming Shantae and the Pirate's Curse coming to 3DS this year.
