WayForward has announced that we won’t be seeing Shantae this month after all.
Taking to their Kickstarter to give us another progress update, WayForward has announced a six week delay for the PlayStation Vita version of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero – the previously announced September 27th release date now turning into sometime around November 8th if taken literally. The reasoning behind this delay has been revealed to be bugfixing and polish, so nothing too major (and hopefully nothing too unpredictable).
While this delay certainly isn’t something we were hoping to hear, at least we’re not lumped in with PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 backers/hopefuls; they’ve had their versions cancelled due to extremely low demand. 😮
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is now due out sometime in November if this delay time-frame holds true, and who knows when if it doesn’t.
