WayForward just announced the Kickstarter for their newest game: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.

What does this mean?  It means more classic platforming goodness from the company that knows how to make great side scrolling platformers.  These are the guys behind Ducktales: Remastered, Mighty Switch Force, Adventure Time games and A Boy and His Blob.

The starting payment for the game is $15 but for a limited 1000 you can get it for $12.  Move quick because there are only 700 left after under an hour of announcement!

There are plenty of stretch goals that range from new characters to play, bonus chapters and a few costume changes for our lovely main character!  Seeing the rate it is getting funded, I am sure most if not all of these will be reached.

If you are not familiar with the original Shantae, you can go download it on your 3DS from the Nintendo eShop for $4.99 or hunt down some original copies for the Gameboy Color.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be available for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 & 4, WiiU and Steam sometime in the future.
