Keiji Inafune may have found considerable success with his kickstarter for Mighty No.9, but his spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends, titled Red Ash, has had a hell of a time meeting its funding goal. Currently, it’s only slightly over halfway to its 800k goal, sitting at about 480k with 3 days to go. I was fully prepared to wait it out and report here about its failure, but it seems that Inafune has found a publisher in a Chinese company called FUZE. You should check their website out. It sure is something.
Funding will instead go towards meeting stretch goals, paving the way for more content in the final release. What kind of content can you expect?
“Exactly what are those stretch goals? We’re sorry to say that will have to wait a little while longer!”
Oh well ok.
It’s incredibly fascinating to see how poorly and ill-received the Red Ash kickstarter has been considering it’s from the same folks behind Mighty No.9.
