February 2, 2018 - The Kickstarter campaign for the first official Orange Juice goods has reached 120% funding in less than 3 days! This means that Suguri and Marie Poppo from the popular online board game 100% Orange Juice make their grand appearance as limited edition plushies in the the new Kickstarter campaign. The campaign is being run by the game’s publisher, Fruitbat Factory.

The stretch goals for the campaign will unlocks plushies for even more characters, starting with Sora and Star Breaker, as well as add free bonuses such as physical Hyper Cards and Unit Cards to the plushies.

“It’s really humbling to use how warmly the campaign has been received by the community. It’s sending a clear message that the fans wanted these goods, and we’re seeing countless requests for even more characters. It’s impossible to recreate all of the Orange Juice game’s cast as plushies at once, but we look forward to growing the plushie family as much as we can through this campaign.” says Jakke Elonen, President of Fruitbat Factory.

Original designs for the plushies have been created by the main artist of Orange Juice, Hono, and the finished plushies are planned to be crafted by the U.S.-based Symbiote Studios. Concept art and photos of finished prototypes can be viewed on the campaign page.

The lowest pledge of $36 + shipping gives backers one of the limited edition plushies. The plushies will be produced in a limited quantity solely based on Kickstarter pledges.
