We’ve been covering Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s kickstarter, which recently got the lead animator from Skullgirls to join their team.
Now, Wayforward has confirmed that Risky Boots, a character from the original game, will be playable in the game if they hit $500K. You can see her glorious HD sprite below:
Risky Boots is clearly a lot more imposing than Shantae, she is both older and smarter than Shantae. She is also seriously armed with weapons, and considers Shantae an annoyance.
Their campaign is closing in on its goal of $400K, right now they’re sitting on $288K. If you haven’t pledged to the kickstarter, you can do so here.
