I’ve been pumped for a physical release of Shantae Half-Genie Hero since I got to play it on Switch at last year’s E3. The XSEED booth attendant wouldn’t give me a firm “yes” or “no” as to whether or not the game would be coming to Nintendo’s hybrid console on a cartridge at any point, but I got the sense that it was only a matter of time. Well, the time is now!

There’s no word in the announcement as to when Shantae Half-Genie Hero: Deluxe Day One Edition will be hitting shops, but its GameStop listing suggests an April 23, 2018 release date, so fingers crossed that it’s real. Shantae is a series of metroidvania-style titles that star the nominal half-genie as she fights to protect Scuttle Town. The games are always visually stunning and boast tight controls, not to mention some really fun storylines and dialogue. Keep this one on your radar!
