WayForward have announced that their upcoming platformer, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will also be coming to Vita and Vita TV should it reach its funding target of $400,000. The Kickstarter is currently sitting at $215,000, slightly more than halfway, only six days into the campaign.

The team were apparently so inspired by the requests for Vita support that when they saw the hardware revision at yesterday’s press conference they decided they just had to port the wfEngine over to the handheld.

If you’re at all interested in Shantae’s development, check out the Kickstarter’s updates page, which has daily entries detailing WayForward’s composing, storyboarding and art processes.

The game is currently set to release in October 2014.

Bingo. Pirate's Curse is 3DS exclusive and releasing later this year, while Half-Genie Hero is coming to all the major HD platforms and is slated for release in Fall 2014. It will be the first Shantae game to not be playable on 3DS. :O

I want this. I was actually looking to pick up one of the original games, but it's pricey lol. We'll see...

I don't really know anything about Shantae or this kickstarter, but I would suspect that the reasoning behind that is because it's aiming for HD?  So then resolution and screensize is probably really important here.

I believe that is what WayForward said. If it was a pixel art game like its predecessors, then it would be a different story.
