The release date of Shantae: Half Genie Hero has been delayed by about six weeks, according to an update on the game's Kickstarter page. The game was originally slated for September 27th, 2016, so now it'll likely launch in the first or second week of November.
This news was part of an extensive update from WayForward Technologies, which gave us some last-minute details on Half-Genie Hero's late development stages. According to the update, the entire game has been completed; the extra development time will be used to focus on fixing bugs. Copies of Half-Genie Hero will be sent to Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft, the companies that are publishing the different versions of the game, for rigorous testing, and once Shantae is approved by all three companies, it'll be sent to manufacturers and online retailers.
The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game have been cancelled entirely, since there was very little demand for the game on those platforms. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will now launch exclusively on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, and PC. For more information on the cancellation, as well as the game's upcoming translations and its possible DLC, you can read the full Kickstarter update here.
