Retail Versions Of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Will Be Published By XSEED

WayForward has announced via Twitter that retail versions of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be available in the future and published by XSEED games.

The physical versions will be a special edition named “Risky Beats” which will include a 20 song CD for free with the copy of the game. If you are expecting a copy from backing the Kickstarter campaign, this will be unaffected, as WayForward is still handling the backer rewards and download codes.



  1. I’ve been enjoying the series since I found the original game in a pawn shop. I can say for a fact that not one game in the three is anything less then spectacular.

      1. The original Shantae was a very late GameBoy color release. 2001, everyone was celebrating the GBA at the time.

  2. This is the best possible news ever! I am sad since this means the $250 I spent on the Kickstarter wont net me a physical copy, but I love this franchise so much that I will buy a physical copy too!
