Shantae teams up with Mighty No. 9 dev for 'Half-Genie Hero'

Japanese studio Inti Creates is handling development duties on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, WayForward's HD installment in the beloved platforming series. You may also recall Inti Creates as the same house handling Keiji Inafune's retro-inspired game, Mighty No. 9.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is currently seeking aid through Kickstarter. Publisher WayForward is looking to secure $400,000 in the next 16 days and, as of right now, the campaign has earned over $318,000.

Inti Creates was formed in 1996 by some talent who had left Capcom to strike out on their own. The studio has since formed a working relationship with Capcom and produced several entries in the Mega Man series, including Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10, and the Mega Man Zero line of games. Inti Creates is also responsible for the upcoming 3DS game, Shantae and the Pirate's Curse.
