by Koji Igarashi: With the latest Paypal total -- roughly $62,000 from 800 backers -- we've surpassed $3mm. You did it, and we're proud to have been standing nearby with a look of stunned disbelief on our faces.
Awesome! And the next goal, asynchronous multiplayer, sounds like it'll offer some worthwhile stuff, too!
Based on the description of asynchronous multiplayer, it appears to add a soul series multiplayer feel to the game. You see the movements of your friends during boss fights and spots where other players have died.
Will the Wii U version be able to be the same as the PS4/XONE version? I hope they don't dumb down the game so that all versions are the same.
Wii U can run UE4 just fine. Stop believing the haterade. Wii U is quite powerful.
NO IT CAN'T..Damn when the people who created the engine come out and say that the Wii U cannot then its FACT...No matter what you Nintendo cult members believe, its not some conspiracy to kill Nintendo IT ACTUALLY CAN'T
Even if the graphics take a hit, which I doubt considering the kind of awesome yet non-taxing art style it uses, they've got Armature on the job. These guys know their Nintendo hardware (they're a part of the reason why Metroid Prime was so awesome), and if we hit that Vita goal, you can be sure they'll do a fantastic job there as well. They're not like Slightly Mad: their portfolio and experience is solid enough that there's pretty much zero chance that the Wii U version will be dumbed down, especially in the gameplay department.
Yeah, there's plenty of pretty 2D cross-gen games that look virtually the same across all console platforms at 1080p60 specs. There shouldn't be any reason to worry about potential compromises, especially with another studio being contracted to develop the port.
Just look at Rayman Legends. Same across all platforms, even the Vita. I expect the same for this.
http://www.nintendolife.com... http://wiiudaily.com/2013/0... Really meant for Deadpoolio. Wii U can run it.
What if the game isn't demanding?
Is a 2D game They could a made this game for the last gen if they wanted to, Yea the Wii U is underpower but the Wii u can definitely handle this game
Yes one of the stretch goals is a vita port! Hope they achieve that.
We need to hit the Vita goal. I did my part and I'm trying to get everyone I know to do it.
What exactly is this game? I haven't heard of it. If it's something cool to get for Wii U, I definitely want in on it, mine's been collecting dust for weeks now.
It's a spiritual successor to Iga's Castlevania series. With gameplay more like SOTN, Aria of Sorrow or Order of Eclessia instead of the Mercury Steam Series (Lords of Shadow series)
Splatoon just launched- what's wrong with you? Seriously though, Splatoon is one of the greatest games I've played in the last 10 years. It's fantastic. It made me rage hard when I was losing a lot of matches- I haven't raged that hard since the days of GoldenEye. But I also haven't played a game as addictive and fun in the last 10 years either- this game sits among Giants such as Monster Hunter, Fire Emblem and Zelda. Definitely the funnest shooter I've ever played in my life. I'm not exaggerating.
The biggest problem I have with this project now is the wait for release!
who you tellin... I'm still waiting on Mighty #9, Yooka-Laylee, and Umbra
i'm wondering what is the target rating of the game. Symphony of the Night was rated "T", it had blood, it was dark and the overall atmosphere was far from being a children's game. i'm hoping this will be of similar qualities.
Don't worry about the rating. Even if it gets an E rating, it's not going to affect the quality of its entertainment value. Not everything needs to be hyper mature to be entertaining, and this is no exception.
"hyper mature"?! anyway.. as a matter of fact it may. most if not all backers are supporting this project because they come from the Castlevania school and if you have played a classic Castlevania you will want to expect similar if not the same quality of immersion. granted, this isn't a Castlevania game so, we will see.
i dont care.. At least this game is being made & every console owner can play it.. My physical copy will be for PS4 but idk about the digital version yet.. Maybe vita when it gets there just so i can keep my progression if possible.. If not, ill get it on wii u just so i have the map right there without pausing.. Unreal 4 is scalable so im sure there will be some compromises made for wii u but i just want another FN 2D castlevania! Even if it looks like the PS1 version.. I played em all from nes, snes, ps1, & DS.. They were all great.. If konami wants to force people like him & hideo kojima out because of their way of doing things then kickstarter games it is.. Im an old school gamer since the NES days.. graphics are important but do not make a game great
