Earlier this year Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse was announced for the 3DS, and now even more Shantae is on the way, with Shantae: Half-Genie Hero coming to the Wii U (as well as PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Steam.)

Or it will be, if and when it reaches its Kickstarter funding. With over $60,000 of its $400,000 goal funded already on day one, it seems like a pretty sure bet, but let's not leave this to luck, ok? Not many details on what makes this stand out from the other Shantae titles are available yet, but for now this is what we know, straight from the Kickstarter page:

Now Shantae's headed for the living room, but her core gameplay elements will remain intact:

-Whipping! Destroy monsters, topple bosses, and solve puzzles with your hair
-Belly Dancing! Dance to transform into a variety of creature forms
-Platforming! Run and jump through deviously designed levels
-Exploring! Navigate a world of interconnected levels and Labyrinths
-Customizing! Earn new abilities, unlock stat-boosting artifacts, magic & costumes
-Storytelling! Flirtatious characters and wonderfully off-beat humor

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero continues the tradition of action/adventure in the spirit of Metroid, Castlevania, and the Legend of Zelda. Our goal is to introduce Shantae to a whole new audience with a fresh art style and a brand spanking new storyline. As always, we're putting pitch perfect controls in the front seat.

Are you excited? What do you hope to see from Shantae's first console appearance?
