The Shantae series has always had a nice following, but it seems as though Sequin Land’s resident belly dancing half-genie is more popular than ever, if a new report released by publisher XSEED Games is anything to go by.
XSEED has announced that the physical “Ultimate Day One Editions” of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition — a re-release of HGH with all previously released DLC included — for the Nintendo Switch has been one of the fastest-selling limited editions in XSEED’s publishing history.
“We’re blown away at how eager XSEED, WayForward, and Shantae fans were to get their hands on this limited edition for the Switch,” said XSEED Games Executive Vice President Ken Berry. “WayForward have been great to partner with, and have produced a truly fantastic game! We’re all humbled and excited by the reception and sales for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, and are working hard to make sure we meet fan demand so that Shantae enthusiasts can have a physical version of the game to display in their collection.”
“This has been a long, wild, exciting ride from launching the Kickstarter through to this latest release,” said WayForward Shantae Director Matt Bozon. “Our fans have been incredible throughout this experience, and we couldn’t be happier with how everything has turned out for Shantae and our partnership with XSEED Games on the North American retail release. They came up with an amazing limited edition that really does justice to all the hard work our team put into Shantae’s latest adventure, and it has clearly been popular with all of our dedicated fans!”
