Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer! Feel the beat with all new HD Rumble! Full details coming soon!! pic.twitter.com/WNTSGxYiSg— WayForward (@WayForward) May 11, 2017
Even if it's not the full explanation, I do think the ballot has a lot to do with this. I myself first learned of Shantae through the Smash ballot.It seems that Shantae is gaining a lot of prominence since post-ballot. I'm not sure if the two are related, but I don't remember such groundswell around her beforehand.
I don't know if any of you still remember a little fiasco that occurred mid-Smash Ballot regarding Shantae. Cristina Vee's IMDb page had been edited (possibly by a fan) to claim that Shantae had been added to Smash 4, and Cristina had reprised her role as her.I am just glad Shantae is getting the exposure she deserves. Her games are always so fun. When is that Pirate Queen DLC going to drop? I so want to play as Ms. Vee's other character voice work.
God that head toss would be a banging recovery. Can't wait to see them all in action.https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1236620800/shantae-half-genie-hero/posts/2034571
Look at all those neat gameplay potentials that won't appear in Smash anytime soon.
It's certainly possible. She probably did well on the ballot and the physical version of half genie hero with all the dlc is only available on the switch. I'm not holding my breath though, she's got hurdles to get over..........do you think Shantae still has a chance?
