Shantae's Risky Boots wins CharaGumin figurine poll




Looks like fans want to see Risky Boots get the CharaGumin figurine treatment next. WayForward hosted a vote at Anime Expo 2018 to see which character from the Shantae series should get a CharaGumin figure next. As you can see in the image above, fans voted for Risky Boots the most, but Sky was a very close second. A Twitter poll is on the way next, so make sure to cast your vote in that one!

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero “Ultimate Day One Edition” on Switch Sells out in Record Time

The genie is out of the bottle! XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., is excited to share that the physical “Ultimate Day One Edition” launch edition of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, created to celebrate the Nintendo Switch™ launch of WayForward’s hit crowdfunded action platformer complete with all DLC included, is shimmying off store shelves at a record rate. It has been one of the fastest-selling limited editions to date from the publisher, who pride themselves on creating high-quality, fan-centric physical game releases.

Sadly, the party can’t last forever, and supplies of the “Ultimate Day One Edition” have all been shipped to retailers, so once retailers sell through their current inventory, this edition will be gone forever. For Shantae fans who missed out but still want to secure a retail copy of the game, the “Ultimate Day One Edition” will be replaced in the coming weeks by a standalone Nintendo Switch release titled Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Ultimate Edition. This edition still contains the base game and all DLC, but omits the bonus art book and soundtrack.

“We’re blown away at how eager XSEED, WayForward, and Shantae fans were to get their hands on this limited edition for the Switch,” said Ken Berry, Executive Vice President at XSEED Games. “WayForward have been great to partner with, and have produced a truly fantastic game! We’re all humbled and excited by the reception and sales for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, and are working hard to make sure we meet fan demand so that Shantae enthusiasts can have a physical version of the game to display in their collection.”

“This has been a long, wild, exciting ride from launching the Kickstarter through to this latest release,” said Shantae Director at WayForward, Matt Bozon. “Our fans have been incredible throughout this experience, and we couldn’t be happier with how everything has turned out for Shantae and our partnership with XSEED Games on the North American retail release. They came up with an amazing limited edition that really does justice to all the hard work our team put into Shantae’s latest adventure, and it has clearly been popular with all of our dedicated fans!”

The standalone Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Ultimate Edition will soon be available at select retailers throughout North America at an MSRP of $39.99. This Nintendo Switch-exclusive physical release includes the base game as well as the ‘Pirate Queen’s Quest’, ‘Costume Pack’, and ‘Friends to the End’ DLC, all on a single game card.
