UPDATE: Even more great news for Shantae fans! Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will also receive a physical release, courtesy of XSeed Games. The game will also support HD Rumble and will include over 150 HD Rumble events.



Fans of half-genie bellydancers, rejoice! Acclaimed Wayforward platformer Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is grooving onto the Switch this summer, as announced on Wayforward’s Twitter.

Besides Shantae’s new spiffy red and blue getup (which mimics the Neon Switch’s color scheme — no word on whether it’s a costume in-game or just promo art), the game will also feature HD Rumble. More details are promised soon, so stay wired for when specifics on release date and version differences drop.
