Just last month, WayForward announced that Shantae: Half-Genie Hero would make its way to the Switch, but we weren’t expecting to see it this soon! Right before E3 begins, you can buy Shantae: Half-Genie Hero via the Nintendo eShop on June 8th — less than a week away! The game will be available to both North America and European markets.


There’s been no update with the physical version of the Half-Genie Hero, but given that it’s being handled by XSEED and E3 is almost here, the game might be out on a cartridge sooner than we think!

Ready to wiggle some Joy-Cons for some genie transformations?
