Soul Saga, a self-professed love letter to classic JRPGs, still has 13 days to go on Kickstarter and has already been successfully funded. It’s now satisfied its stretch goal to port versions of the game to Wii U, PS4 and PS Vita, alongside its already scheduled PC release, and the campaign’s funding total continues to rise by the hour.
“A love letter to J-RPG classics from the Playstation era like Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, Suikoden, and Persona,” reads the first line of the Soul Saga Kickstarter page. Wait a second…did you hear that? It’s the sound of the army of role-players whose jaws just collectively hit the floor.
At the time of writing Soul Saga had accrued $109’516, heading towards double its original $60’000 asking price. After passing the $80’000 on Saturday, the game will now make the jump from the originally slated PC release to Wii U, PS4 and PS Vita as well.
The subsequent $90’000 and $100’000 successful stretch goals were the inclusion of airships and airship combat respectively. ‘Job Board’ is the next goal at $110’000 which is almost certain as the game’s total teeters at the higher end of 109K.
If this is your chalice of tea, head over to the Soul Saga Kickstarter page to donate. If unsure, check out some new pre-alpha combat footage below during which creator Mike Gale makes reference to “puzzle-based enemies” which will appear in the finished article. Interesting.
As always, keep your browser fixed on BeefJack for all that is Soul Saga in the coming weeks.
