|Is it Red Ash, or Re Dash?|
|MegaMan Volnutt, Teisel Bonne, Roll Casket, and a ServBot|
Anyway, I'm not surprised to see a spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends come out of Comcept, after all it was the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3 that caused Inafune to seek Kickstarter as a means of funding his games, and I'm sure Red Ash will be fully funded by the time it's campaign is over. As of writing this Red Ash has raised about $200,000 out of it's $800,000 goal. A lot slower than Mighty No. 9, but that is probably because thanks to the delays and controversy over the course of Mighty No. 9's development, a lot of fans who DO want to see a successor to Mega Man Legends are probably skeptical that 1) The project will ever be finished or 2) Even if it is finished it's not to the quality that was expected or promised. Personally, I think Inafune should have held off on announcing this project until after Mighty No. 9 launched, that way MN9 can be a Proof-of-Comcept and allow more "Becker" to trust that the game will be finished and still hold the standard of excellence that we have come to expect from Inafune.
|A little ambitious aren't we?|
Now that I've talked about it here is the big question: Am I going to back these projects? Well, I haven't decided yet. I'm probably not going to back the Anime as it seems less interesting to me on the whole. I mean, I'd still watch it if it does come out, but it's not the sort of thing that I want to throw my money at it right now. As for the game, while I would love to see a true successor to Mega Man Legends, I'm going to hold on to my money until I can see the console stretch goals. The thing is currently the game is only going to be available for PC, and I prefer to game on consoles or handhelds. Now, I'm sure there are stretch goals for these versions down the line, but I didn't back Mighty No. 9 until the 3DS version was a sure thing, and it is likely I won't do the same for Red Ash until the same thing happens. Right now, I'll just have to wait.
