    Kickstarter goal of $2 million has been reached in less than two days. They're actually going to make it.



    I backed it immediately.

    At time of this post, the pledge total is: $3,658,801

    I'm happy about this and have mixed feelings all at once. I want it, but I want it for a console, but not as a digital multi-GB download. And Yu Suzuki has hinted when asked about a physical disc/cartridge version for a dedicated game system that the matter isn't even up for discussion unless the campaign achieves all of the stretch goals he has pre-planned up to the $10,000,000 mark. I think he should've paid more attention to how Iga-san (Castlevania creator) handled his KickStatrter campaign what with actively adding stretch goals to physically bring BloodStained: Ritual of the Night to additional game systems a little bit along.

    I pledged, too.

    Not sure if you can make an open-world game for 4 mil, though. The budget for the original games was like 70 million... over ten years ago. In today's money, that's probably over a 100 million.
