Although things were looking a bit iffy for WayForward's first Kickstarter, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is fully funded, and is now on their way to reach their stretch goals. As of the time of this writing $410,000 has been raised, and the first (and likely only feasible) goal is Risky Mode, which allows you to play an entirely new campaign as Risky -- Shantae's arch nemesis.
Further goals include bonus chapters, new costumes, more characters, and mystery goals. If you're interested, you can head to the Kickstarter page and nab a key for the game upon release for $15. As a Shantae fan, I'm really glad this one hit the mark. Unlike Mighty No. 9which needs an extremely high amount of funds to come to the PS4 and Xbox One, Shantae HD will literally be coming to every platform but the 3DS.
