Shantae is releasing in her Vita debut, alongside the games other versions (PS4, Wii U and Steam), in the highly anticipated project Half Genie Hero on Dec. 20th. But the game is in the hands of Kickstarter backers and some members of the gaming press, so they were able to spend some time with the title.
BlueMaxima’s Vita Channel was able to play with the Vita version of the game and it seems to be a solid port. It reportedly runs at a solid 50-60FPS at Native Resolution but with some effects from the console versions toned down. I was surprised to hear the game runs at a high frame rate on Vita, as I personally expected the title to run at a stable 30FPS on Vita.
Still this is great news and I will hopefully be able to talk more about this title in the near future.
