Disastercake Successfully Funds J-RPG Love Letter Soul Saga On Kickstarter


For fans of the J-RPG, Soul Saga looks like a grand slam at Denny’s after a night of hard drinking. Nostalgia heavy backers have already almost doubled Mike Gale’s initial funding goal. The stretch goals that have been met secure Soul Saga’s release on the Wii U, Playstation Vita, and Playstation 4 platforms. I’ve never been much of a J-RPG fan, but I know that it’s fan base consists of some of the most passionate people in gaming. It’s no wonder that a new, contemporary take on the genre would fund in a heartbeat on Kickstarter. Even though I’m not really a fan of the genre, there’s still several appealing aspects of Soul Saga. The promise of layered, tactical combat paired with a deep RPG experience is a an attractive prospect. My only turn off when it comes to the genre is it’s art direction, which in contrast is usually one of the selling points to die hard J-RPG fans.

Soul Saga’s crowdfunding pitch is easily one of the best I’ve seen, and the pre-alpha gameplay footage attached to the campaign shows off an early build of the impressive turn based combat. The art direction, soundtrack, and combat hit all of the necessary marks to make this a true J-RPG experience. There’s still plenty of time left on Soul Saga’s crowdfunding venture, and a few stretch goals still lie dormant. If you’re a J-RPG fan and you happen to own a PC, Wii U, PS Vita, or are planning on a Playstation 4, head over to Kickstarter and lend your support!
