Shantae: Half-Genie Hero coming to Vita & Vita TV too!
Editor's Note: For anyone not sure why Sony would create the Vita TV, here is just one example of a developer who is more interested in developing for the platform since the announcement. Hopefully the micro-console will attract more and more games to the platform.
Those familiar with the Shantae series may be surprised by the lack of handheld support for the ongoing Kickstarter campaign for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (although a Steam version of Shantae: Risky's Revenge will be arriving in the future). Well, as of a recent update to their Kickstarter, there will indeed be a handheld version available, this time for the PlayStation Vita.
So, in the off-chance that you still haven't done so, you have even more of a reason to support the ever awesome folks at Wayforward by checking out their Kickstarter page!
Kinda hoping we can get a 3DS version as well(I mean I have a vita, I just think a nich game like this will sell better on a handheld with a large install base).
If this continues, we could see the Vita at least not repeating the PSP's debacle of relatively healthy sales (about 50 mil towards the middle or later part of its prime sounds healthy for a games platform), but horridly uneven across the board support (Western Support died down by 2010 or so to low levels. And even then, majority of the support for the thing came from the Japanese/Asian side, which made it have at least a better position than the Saturn [Should be noted that the Saturn had at least 2-3 extra years in Japan before kicking it]).
And still more than 3 weeks left.
While I'm kind of sad there isn't any word of a 3DS version I understand that the system probably isn't as powerful as they would like for this game. It's clear they want the best quality graphics they can get and while I hate to admit it the Vita has the 3DS beat there.
Ah well, still getting this for my Wii U.
Alright I'll try it out.
There's really only two at this point, three this winter, but if you have to play one, it's Shanatae: Risky's Revenge for DSi/3DS.
I've been wanting to play The Shantae games for a while now any recommendations.
Over halfway there
How far along are they? Just out of curiosity.
