Since we posted this exciting news, Disastercake has been in touch with us to let us know it has reduced the Wii U stretch goal to $80,000. Here's what Mike Gale has just told us:
I wanted to let you know that I reduced the stretch goal for the Wii U down to $80,000. I really want to see Soul Saga on the Wii U!
It looks like Disastercake is very keen to get Soul Saga: Episode I onto Nintendo's latest home console!
Yesterday we reported that the indie J-RPG inspired Kickstarter project Soul Saga: Episode I is heading to the Wii U eShop in 2014, should it reach its funding goals. Since then, developer Mike Gale from Disastercake has informed Nintendo Life that he has added a new pledge tier for to the Kickstarter page, so that backers can now pledge a minimum of $15 to solely receive a Wii U code of the game, instead of having to pledge for the PC, Linux or Mac version and adding an extra $10 to grab the Wii U code too.
When discussing the reasoning behind this alteration, Mike explained how he had recently received a lot of comments from potential backers and Soul Saga fans and wanted to make the game more accessible to them:
I was getting some feedback that some people only wanted the Wii U code, and for a more reasonable price. It's at the $15 pledge level now.
Currently the game must reach a stretch funding level of $105,000 in order to gain a Wii U make-over, surpassing other stretch goals such as the addition of professional voice acting and the inclusion of an in-game airship and airship combat, however the developer has hinted that he may adjust the stretch goals so that the Wii U version is easier to unlock.
