The Ghouls 'n Ghosts-inspired 2D platformer Battle Princess Madelyn has beaten its initial Kickstarter funding goal and has already surpassed several of its stretch goals - and the campaign has only been active for five days.

Causal Bit's arcade adventure had a starting target of CA$ 60,000 and at the time of writing has raised CA$ 107,908. Stretch goals already achieved include an arcade mode, boss rush mode, additional levels, more characters and extra side-quests. The two remaining stretch goals are for a new level ($125,000) and PS Vita version ($150,000).

The game is confirmed for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U and will launch early next year, alongside PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions.
