The developers, Rabbit and Bear Studios, are looking to raise a rather modest £396,500 from the Eiyuden Kickstarter. With a range of reward tiers ranging from digital copies of the game to vinyl soundtracks and even the chance to become an NPC in the game!
The short clip they show on the campaign pages has a mix of PlayStation era style sprites, mixed with modern 3D backgrounds. Both of which fit in nicely together to give the game a very cohesive appearance.
If you’re interested in backing the campaign we would like to advise caution. Not because we don’t believe in what Rabbit and Bear Studios can achieve with Eiyuden. More because of the risks involved with backing games on platforms like Kickstart. We all remember what happened with Mighty No. 9 after all.
Rabbit and Bear are looking to release Eiyuden around October 2022. With current consoles targeted being the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo’s current system at that time.
We’d love to hear if you’re interested in backing the Eiyuden Kickstarter. Or would you rather wait for the launch and pick it up later on? Let us know in the comments below.
