Nintendo and Tecmo Koei have gone full swing into the Ocarina of Time phase of their promotion for their soon-to-be-released crossover title, Hyrule Warriors. We now have full scans for all nine pages centered around the game that were featured in Famitsu this week.
This weeks panel discussion focuses on Kickstarter and the funding issues that have arisen over the last few years. Recently the developers of Mighty Number 9 asked for an additional $100,000, on top of the 4million that they have already received, just to add English Voice Acting. About a year back Tim Schafer’s crowd-funding game Broken Age announced that they also needed more money just to finish the project. With these developers double-dipping into the crowd-funding world, what does the future hold for these types of games? Is this a fad or will Kickstarter be around for the long haul in the video game world. Make the jump to check out this weeks panel discussion.
