Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is a platform video game created by WayForward Technologies for the Wii U and other platforms (Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Stadia and PlayStation 5). It is the fourth game in the Shantae series, following Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, and the first to be produced particularly for high-definition game systems. Through Kickstarter, the game was funded with more than $900,000. Similar to earlier games in the series, the player controls Shantae, a half-genie who can whip adversaries with her hair. The limited “Risky Beats” edition includes a thirty-track soundtrack CD.
