WayForward announced today via Twitter that its newest Shantae platformer, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, will be receiving a Switch port this Summer. WayForward will be handling the digital release, while XSEED takes care of physical distribution. Details are scarce, but so far they've confirmed that the Switch version will support HD Rumble with at least 150 patterns:

We loved the Wii U version, awarding it a nine out of ten and calling it "top of its class". It only makes sense for Shantae to appear on the Switch given the franchise's roots on Nintendo's portable consoles; the first title appeared on the Game Boy Color back in 2002.

What do you think? Are you interested to try Half-Genie Hero on your Switch? Will you repurchase this if you already have the Wii U version? Let us know in the comments.
