the funding on Kickstarter page is going up like crazy, could hit full funding by tomorrow

it went from 90k to 130k just while I was reading the page

2-3 hours later, reached it's goal. I haven't been this psyched since Spencer wore a Battletoad's shirt. ;)

as I type this its almost at 600k, that 2nd playable character goal should be reached soon.

Mighty No9 needed 3 days to get to the goal of 900k, this game will beat that in under a day, and MN9 made 4 million from Kickstarter.

expect the stretch goals to expand and the game fund to reach 3-5 million

I jumped in to pledge my $$. it should hit the $850k mark well before the 32 days remaining.

and someone pledged $5k... damn sweet of them. they get to help come up with an enemy in the game for doing that.

its has completed all initial stretch goals in under a day, at 1 million right now, additional goal of chat codes done, local co-op goal almost done.

I may actually donate to this Kickstarter.

It's gonna be my good deed of the day.

Me too! Im glad to see some of gaming's greats refusing to get shafted by the companies they helped make successful. Itagaki, Inafune, Kamiya, the former Rare devs and now Igarashi all made their own studios and are making the games both they and their fans have been wanting. I have a feeling Kojima will join them too.

This is where Kickstarter lives up to its potential. Hopefully developers like Capcom and Konami see that there is still high demand for Megaman games and Metroidvania.

It's the best way to get games that we want. If only I can win the lotto I can fund these games and make my on company.

80,000$ Already the Kickstarter campaign...OMG!!

G3n3raL861138d ago

And it's on 500,000$. Guess what? It's gonna happen!!!:)

Neonridr1138d ago

holy crap that was fast. When I backed a couple of hours ago it was only at like 150k.

Here's hoping they smash all the stretch goals. I wanna see this game on the Wii U hopefully. Only fitting we have a Castlevania game on a Nintendo system.

godofboobees1138d ago

Backed and already reached its goal. There is life in gamers after all
