FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TOKYO, Japan… Project Phoenix, the Japanese indie RPG
being crowdfunded through Kickstarter, has surpassed yet another
one of its stretch goals. In total, Project Phoenix has
succeeded in raising more than $800,000 through both Kickstarter
and Paypal with approximately 50 hours remaining in the Kickstarter
campaign before the official funding period is over. This
latest milestone entitles backers to an official Project Phoenix
poster for those who ordered physical copies and a digital copy for
those whose rewards include only the digital copy.
In addition to the milestone, Project Phoenix has forged a
partnership with the Japanese figurine manufacturer Good Smile
Company, known for being one of the largest manufacturers of games
and anime figurines for franchises ranging from Touhou Project, to
Attack on Titan, to Valkyria Chronicles. Together, Project
Phoenix and Good Smile Company will create a 1/8 scale figurine of
the Elven Pathfinder Sylrianah.
"We are extremely grateful for the passion, enthusiasm, and
generosity of our backers," says Hiroaki Yura, Project Phoenix's
producer and director. "Our fans have shown time after time
again that they are excited by our mission to revive the JRPG
genre. Furthermore, we're thankful that a reputable company
like Good Smile has faith in our ability to succeed and we are
excited to be working with them to bring one of our cherished
characters to life!"
The new Sylrianah figurine can be obtained by pledging through
the Project Phoenix Kickstarter through a $950 pledge tier or
through Paypal after the end of the Kickstarter campaign.
With all its successes in securing a Playstation 4 and
Playstation Vita release for Project Phoenix, the only way people
can purchase such copies will be through the Playstation Store as
of now. However, backers for the Playstation 4 and Vita can
obtain a digital version of the rewards through a special "Treasure
Hunter" tier that is priced at $120.
This information is open for immediate release. Visuals are
available for download.
