SHANTAE: HALF-GENIE HERO
DANCES INTO DANGER STARTING DECEMBER 20
Games Confirms Retail Launch Date for PS4TM, PS®Vita and Wii U Systems
Torrance, Calif. — December 9, 2016 —
XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that their retail
edition of the crowd-funded action game developed by WayForward, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, will
launch for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system on December
20. To celebrate the popular indie series’ first full HD release, a limited “Risky Beats” retail
edition will be packaged with a musical selections CD containing 30 songs from the game’s soundtrack for PS4™
and “PSVita” systems as well as for Wii U™ system in North America for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
The retail release date for Wii U will be one week later on December 27. WayForward will launch the PS4™ system and
Wii U versions digitally on December 20 from PlayStation®Store and Nintendo eShop, respectively, for $19.99. XSEED Games
will handle publishing duties for the digital “PSVita” system release from PS Store, also scheduled for December
20, for $19.99.
Following three highly successful releases with Shantae, Shantae: Risky’s
Revenge, and Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero reacquaints
players with the cast of Shantae in full HD. The magical world of Sequin Land is more vibrant than ever with high-definition
graphics that retain the charm of the original 2D hand-drawn sprites the series is known for. Shantae, the spirited young
half-genie, must once again defend Scuttle Town as the pirate captain and self-proclaimed Queen of the Seven Seas, Risky Boots,
plots to steal a newly discovered limitless source of power.
Shantae has previously protected her hometown
from all forms of evil including steam-powered pirates, undead evildoers, and militaristic madmen, and is ready to take on
Risky Boots with her trademark Hair Whip attack and Belly Dance moves which give her the power to transform into eight different
creatures. Non-stop action with immersive 2.5D environments and a new relic system give novice and expert players a uniquely
tailored platforming experience. All of Sequin Land becomes a fully explorable world— after conquering massive bosses,
the Arcade-style action stages can be revisited to discover new items and secrets based on experience gained.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is developed by WayForward for PS4™, “PSVita”, and
Wii U. XSEED Games will be publishing the “Risky Beats” physical editions, which will each be available
packaged with a musical selections CD, for $29.99. The PS4™ and “PSVita” retail releases will be available
December 20, while the Wii U retail release will be available December 27. This title has been rated “T for Teen”
by the ESRB with the descriptors of Cartoon Violence and Suggestive Themes.

12/08/2016 - Blue Wizard Digital Releases Space Tyrant Closed Beta on Steam
1:32 pm pst
Blue Wizard Digital is following
up their debut hit, Slayaway Camp, with a wickedly amusing 4x roguelike that has just landed in closed beta on Steam.
Blue Wizard Digital releases Space Tyrant to closed beta on Steam.
In Space Tyrant, you’ll build a terrifying space fleet, devastate planets, and slaughter peaceful extraterrestrials
in your relentless march to total domination!
From people who designed, produced, drew stuff for, or ate
lunch with the people who made Bejeweled, Peggle, and Plants vs Zombies comes a more sinister strategic experience with far
“We all enjoyed 4x and roguelike games but found our minds wandering to nearby squirrels,
etc, during a typical session,” says tyrannical overlord, Jason Kapalka, “under Blue Wizard Digital, we set out
to make a zero-attention span mega-empire game, where you could have titanic space battles and huge galaxy-spanning conquests
but not run over your employer-mandated allotment of lunch-eating minutes.”
“We didn't care about
winning any "cultural victories" or "Space United Nations" crap; we wanted to disintegrate guys and watch
tons of weird spaceships explode. So there is a whole lot of that, plus collecting artifacts and leveling up and conquering
planets and executing ambassadors! Also we hear you like cards? We have cards. So many cards, let me tell you.”
But it's not all vaporizing mewling, hapless slavelings. While bashing your way through space, you’ll eventually face
off against the ‘mall cops’ of the universe - the ASTRONS. They might try to slap your hand and call your parents,
but a truly merciless tyrant will plow right through these goody two-shoes. And to reward your unsavory efforts, a whole new
empire will be yours to agitate. New races of scientifically implausible creatures to lord over, new types of frankly ridiculous
technology to research, new commanders to throw into the fray, new cards to, um, do card things with.
get in on this dastardly beta, visit the game’s official website and sign up for the newsletter. Anyone who signs up will receive a beta
key within a day or so and be up and tyranting in no time. Here are some handy links (screenshots available in the Press
