WayForward has announced that Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be launching for Nintendo Switch in physical and digital formats this summer.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero launched on current-gen platforms including Wii U in December 2016, and WayForward has now confirmed that it will launch on Nintendo Switch in the summer, with XSEED Games also publishing a retail version in unconfirmed regions.

The news follows a recent Kickstarter update which revealed that the playable Risky Boots campaign, which was available as a stretch goal during the game's funding period, will also launch in the summer.

WayForward has also confirmed that the Nintendo Switch version will support HD Rumble, and will include more than 150 "custom-made" rumble events.
