Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

A couple weeks ago, it was announced that development on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero had been completed and that a release date was forthcoming. Fortunately, it has now been confirmed that the wait won't be much longer, the game releases in just a couple of weeks.

WayForward recently updated the Kickstarter to announce that Shantae comes out on 20th December for all platforms. More importantly, for those of you who backed it, the early backer codes are being emailed out next week. Depending on the platform you chose, these codes may not activate until 12th Decmber, but it'll still be an early look regardless. As for the retail release, no date has been announced yet, but XSEED will be making an announcement sometime in the near future.
