Shantae: Half-Genie Hero releases on December 20th for Wii U

Posted on December 5, 2016 by in News, Wii U, Wii U eShop

After several delays, we finally have a confirmed release date for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. The game will release digitally for Wii U on December 20th in both Europe and North America.

Made public in a Kickstarter update, WayForward shared the news and noted that retail versions are still on the way.

If you’re curious about the retail versions, look to Xseed for an announcement shortly! Spread the word! Half-Genie Hero is just a couple of weeks away!

Furthermore, for those who backed the game on Kickstarter and are waiting for their Backer codes, WayForward had this to say:

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! We’ll start distributing Backer Codes next week! Keep an eye on your inbox (and make sure you’re looking at the email address you funded with)!

Please note that for some consoles, the codes are TIME STAMPED to activate on December 12th. So, when you enter the code, it might not activate immediately. This works just a like a timed release for any digital pre-order. If the clock flips to December 13th Pacific Standard Time, and your code still doesn’t work, then it’s time to hit up WayForward support.

It’s mentioned that while the Wii U is listed as confirmed for the December 20th release, WayForward is awaiting “final confirmation” for the Wii U release. You can read the full update on Kickstarter here.
