What Does Kickstarter's Launch in Japan Mean For Games?

As Kickstarter opens itself up to creators from Japan, Cliqist considers what this could mean in terms of past and future crowdfunded video game projects.

The story is too old to be commented.

Maybe some Japanese devs who get sick of publishers ruining franchises they helped create will bail and make spiritual successors.

There've already been Japanese devs who used Kickstarter

Maybe it'll bring more in...who knows

I'll predict probably not, since most kick-starters fail,but we'll see.

Japan also has a great indie scene, just obscure to the rest of the world, I'd recommend checking out SuperBunnyhop channel on YT for his "in my inbox" segment of vids, there's some amazing indie games out there that we would never know even existed if not for a lot of these content creators

Means Japanese gamers get to enjoy being ripped off now too.

Isn't Shemnue 3 being made in Japan and wasn't that funded on Kickstarter since June 2015? Same with that new game by the Castlevania creator, same with that disastrous Mega Man creator game too.
