Although the Kickstarter for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero met its goal and the campaign went well, some content included in stretch goals (such as more chapters) wasn’t funded. Might we see this in the form of DLC? Developer WayForward isn’t ruling out the possibility.

In an interview with The Mary Sue, the studio’s Matt Bozon stated:

“If we sold a lot of copies, and there was a lot of clamor for more DLC, that’s a possibility. The game lends itself to a lot of expansion if that’s what fans want! There will already be a ton of content with all of the stretch goal that were reached… costumes, extra characters, and Risky Boots Mode! There’s a ton of game there, but there’s always room for more!”

And of course, the interview wouldn’t be complete without a question about Smash Bros. and the chances of Shantae appearing. Here’s what Bozon had to say on that front:

“I’m really excited about Shantae being a possibility for Smash! How cool would that be? Amazing, right? I think stylistically she’d be a good fit, being something that exists somewhere between Mega Man and Peach. I’d hope she could recover in Harpy form, or maybe pull off some incredible dance and transformation for her Final Smash! I would love to see this happen, and if not now, then some time in the future!”
