We’ve been talking a lot about Yatagarasu recently on Twinfinite. As a King of Fighters fan personally, the fact that the game was created by 3 former SNK employees kinda whets my appetite. This campaign has been a bit of a nail biter as many of us were wondering if Skullgirls campaign might have undercut the momentum a little. Well at least as much of a nail biter as a project under flexible funding can be.
Lo and behold however the project has been funded. It even has reached GGPO status so those that like to get online to fight, well now you have a better option. This is good to hear as these guys seem to want to turn their little indie fighting game in to something really interesting, which is only a good thing because they promised that they were going to be working as hard as they can on getting this game as far as their money could bring it regardless of where their goal was at.
Currently the game is on Groupees for cheap, but it has to be said that this is the Rice Digital copy, so it hasn’t been truly localized. If you want to truly see where this game was and what it can be turned in to, I recommend you pick it up to see what these guys did and what they can do. Be sure to also check out the IndieGogo campaign while you are at it.
