Fans of the Shantae series have no doubt been waiting with bated breath for WayForward to hurry up with development of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. The latest in WayForward's flagship series, Half-Genie Hero was Kickstarted three years ago and has been in the making ever since. Originally, the game was expected to arrive on 27th September, but it was subsequently delayed and we've been waiting ever since.

Fortunately, the wait will soon be over. WayForward just updated the Kickstarter again and explained that the game is finally 100% complete. It's been submitted to the various manufacturers and storefronts for approval, and a global release date is currently being worked out. While there's nothing to announce at the time regarding release, expect it to be in the very near future.
