Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians Campaign Drastically Reduces 3DS Target
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
It's now feasible
Just over a week ago we told you about the Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians Kickstarter campaign, which has Yasumi Matsuno on board. If you're unaware, Matsuno-san has worked on and been responsible for a diverse range of games, such as Final Fantasy Tactics Advance on GBA, Tactics Ogre on Super NES, MadWorld on Wii and the relatively recent Crimson Shroud on the 3DS eShop.
This tactical RPG does have pedigree, then, promising features such as a grid-based 3D landscape and plenty of depth for gamers to explore. As we highlighted, however, its initial target of $600,000 was somewhat offset by the only Nintendo stretch-goal being exceptionally high at $2,800,000. In good news for those following the project, however, publisher Playdek has lowered the asking rate for the handheld to $1,500,000; the PS4 has also been added at a lower rate but, as yet, no sign of Wii U. It's a major cut, and the positive is that, at present, the campaign is trending not far off that eventual total; trends are far from definitive, of course, but give some hope.
If the 3DS goal is reached the project will have also passed its targets for Hitoshi Sakamoto, Alexander O. Smith and Joseph Reeder to add their expertise for the project.
The pitch video is below and there are plenty of details on the project page. Are you hopeful that this will come to 3DS?
