Red Ash: The Indelible Legend Returns To Crowdfunding

Mega Man Legends successor: Red Ash: The Indelible Legend

Red Ash: The Indelible Legend has returned to crowdfunding after its original Kickstarter campaign to ask for more money from backers. Red Ash: Magicicada was set to be an anime companion to the game, and now Studio 4ºC says it needs an additional $127,000 for the 30-minute film. If its stretch goal of $2.48 million is reached, the studio promises a feature-length 90-minute film.

For those out of the loop, Red Ash: The Indelible Legend first hit Kickstarter a month ago with a goal of $800,000. The game was promised as a spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends. Kieji Inafune’s company, Comcept, had achieved success with Kickstarter for its previous Mega Man-like project, Mighty No. 9, so it made sense that they would return there for their next game. But Red Ash: The Indelible Legend failed to see the same success as its predecessor. After it looked like the original Kickstarter campaign would fail, Comcept managed to acquire funding from Chinese publisher Fuze. The Kickstarter failed, but they had the funding anyway.

Promised along with the original Kickstarter project was an anime film to accompany the game. The film actually did reach its goal, which was for $150,000. Thanks to that success, the film’s production has been confirmed. However, Studio 4ºC is now saying they need more money from backers. There’s a new page on their website that contains a confusing breakdown of all of their new goals. The page contains a disclaimer, stating that the film will be made regardless of the outcome of this latest campaign, which makes it a little confusing as to why they need an additional $127,000 to make a 30-minute film.

Many blame the failure of Red Ash: The Indelible Legend’s Kickstarter campaign on the fact that Inafune launched it before the release of Mighty No. 9. Mighty No. 9 originally came with an April 2015 release date, but has been delayed multiple times to its current early 2016 release date.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
