Shantae, the hair-whipping, belly-dancing, half-genie guardian of Scuttle Town and the game developer
WayForward's overall mascot
. The same developers who brought us... DuckTales: Remastered Contra 4 Mighty Switch Force 1
& 2 A Boy and His Blob Adventure Time: Hey, Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?! Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW! Batman: The Brave and the Bold Double Dragon Neon
After helping support
the Shantae: ½ Genie Hero Kickstarter
, I started
enough to draw again and wanted to try my hand at some fan-work of the character.
And thus Yoko Shantae
has since ended, but the project
still has five more
Stretch Goals to reach
$900,000: Hero Modes
"Extra campaigns, all unique and separate, playing as either Sky, Bolo, or Rottytops, three of Shantae's closest supporting characters."
$1,000,000: Bonus Chapter (A Dish Served Cold)
"Nega-Shantae, an evil counterpart of the title character, returns for revenge. Plus a new transformation."
"Voice acting for all characters, with Shantae's proposed VA being Cristina Valenzuela (better known as Cristina Vee), whose works include: Noel Vermillion (ブレイブルー / Blazblue), Cerebella (Skullgirls), Morgiana (マギ / Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic), Mio Akiyama (けいおん！ / K-On!), and Nanoha Takamachi (魔法少女リリカルなのは / Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha).
$1,200,000: Bonus Chapter (Clockwork Night)
"A supposedly reformed Risky Boots, the main villain of the Shantae series, plans to rid the land of all technology by jettisoning them into space…and a mechanized moon is created. Plus a new transformation."
$1,300,000: Animated Cutscenes
"It's just what it says—along with our choice of an animation studio to help make them."
…and to help reach all of them, Paypal
will remain open
for a few months to help further fund
. Those who help support
them will receive the same rewards
backer would, including three exclusive in-game content bonuses
: a blue-colored version of Shantae's original outfit
, a red-and-black ensemble
for Risky Boots
(based off her classic
appearance from the first game
on the Game Boy Color
), and a new weapon
for Risky Boots
, the Drifter
Blade, as used by the protagonist
Machine's Hyper Light Drifter
In the hopes of drawing more
costumed Shantae in the future
, I will gladly
receive any requests given with your choice
, which can be based off of any female
character from any other franchise--all I ask for in return
is that the requester
something to the cause beforehand and become
Shantaerian / Shantaenian (nicknames for those who help supported the Kickstarter).
If you took the time to read this journal, then I greatly appreciate it.
Thank you for your time, everyone.
May the Shantaerian family continue
to grow and let us all hope for the continued
success of Shantae: ½ Genie Hero
