Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is slowly but surely creeping its way slowly towards its inevitable release date, as hype and expectations continue to build by the same factor. The first entry in a new trilogy for the series looks like it'll be trying a lot of new stuff, and Shantae fans are understandably eager to see what the final product looks like. Last time we received an update on the game, it was mentioned that "top tier publishers" were in negotiations to possibly bring the game to retail.

Now, it's been revealed that the studio which will be picking up the physical publishing duties is XSEED. The announcement came recently via the company's Twitter account, where it was also revealed that the physical release will be something of a special edition. Dubbed the "Risky Beats" edition, the physical copy will also be launching with a 20 song soundtrack CD to accompany the main game. Hopefully, this will help spread awareness about the game when it launches, as well as entice those who are still on the fence.
