    WayForward has announced that Shantae : Half Genie Hero will be released for the Switch sometime this summer, however this release is only a digital version, but fear not, as they also announced that they will be teaming up with Xseedgames to create a retail version of the game.

    I am interested.
    I hope it is cheap, I am spending too much.
    Don't go over 20€ in yurop please.

    I still need to buy a PS4 to play Persona 5 and Nier Automata... Be gentle with the prices.

    Hmmm. I wonder how this will port. Not that there is all that much to port, but still.

    I'm surprised this thread hasn't gotten many replies. You would think this would be huge news

    It was among the list of games in last month's game informer news letter. Plus when your new and fresh system is getting 5-10 year old year games already available on a dozen platforms, a game you were not really interested in the first place, becomes even list interest.

    Please, don't over-exaggerate to try to drive your point home. There is no game in the Nintendo Switch's current catalogue that was previously published in the timeframe you mentioned (5-10 years ago). Your exaggeration is so blatant it's just plain lying.

    Sorry, I didn't know you woke up so sensitive in the mornings.
    Then I will add you to my ignore list too out of courtesy.

    Has anyone here beaten this game? I ask, because I'd like to know if it's long, and worth the money. The videos look amazing, but I want to be sure.

    For those that own the Switch version... can you play as Shantae with that sweet red and blue joycon costume?
