WayForward has announced that Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is ready to go, or as they put it “Ret-2-Go!,” and that it will be released digitally for the PlayStation 4, PS Vita, PC through Steam, Xbox One, and Wii U on December 20th. It is worth noting that the company did say that they are still waiting on final confirmation from Nintendo about the Wii U version arriving on that date.
WayForward also stated that they are going to be distributing codes to backers starting next week and if you have backed the game to keep an eye on your registered email address for the code. The codes are set to activate on December 12th and will not be available before then but if your code still isn’t working by the 13th then you should contact the company for support.
XSEED Games, who is handling the retail release of the PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and Wii U versions of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero have not yet announced when they plan on releasing the physical edition to stores.
