Shantae Half-Minute Hero Kickstarter Reaches its Funding Goal

After launching just over two weeks ago, Shantae Half-Minute Hero has reached its funding goal on Kickstarter. Currently sitting $10,000 over its $400,000 goal, the campaign made it with ten days to spare. To celebrate the achievement, two new stretch goals were revealed, including a Bonus Chapter and Hero Modes. Developer WayForward were kind enough to record their celebration of the funding the moment it happened and upload it to YouTube. Check it out below.

With Shantae & the Pirate’s Curse set to release in Winter 2013, this officially means two Shantaes will be released in the near future. Make sure to check back in a few days when we post our interview with series director, Matt Bozon.
