Japan's Indie Game Faturing AAA Talent Reaches Stretch Goal

TOKYO, Japan... Project Phoenix, the Japanese indie RPG being crowdfunded through Kickstarter, has broken through yet another one of its stretch goals. In total, Project Phoenix has succeeded in raising more than $650,000 through both Kickstarter and Paypal with approximately 10 days remaining in the Kickstarter campaign before the official funding period is over.

This latest successful milestone allows the development team to produce a detailed city system, giving gamers the opportunity to explore the game's cities in greater detail, yielding a more immersive experience as they get to know a city's character on a more personal level. Furthermore, players will also be able to create customized characters, giving them a greater degree of flexibility and allowing them to put their own personal touch when forming their squads for battle.

As Project Phoenix continues down the development path, more details and plans have emerged. In one recent video (http://youtu.be/eou3UMAZ5cc), Project Phoenix director Hiroaki Yura goes over some of the tactical features offered in combat, including the ability to use terrain and terrain objects to derive a greater advantage and setting up ambushes.

Project Phoenix and Curse, which runs websites as Gamepedia and MMO Champion, have also teamed up to set up the official Project Phoenix Wiki (http://projectphoenix.gamepedia.com/Project_Phoenix_Wiki). People can now edit the Wiki as more information about the game becomes available.

Project Phoenix's next steps include opening up a greater dialogue with its backers and the rest of the gaming community through the Project Phoenix forums. More information will be provided in the next few days regarding the forums.

Finally, Project Phoenix is excited to officially announce that a German localization team has been established, with team members having experience localizing games and anime, such as Xenoblade Chronicles, Legend of Zelda:Skyward Sword, and Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. Fans will be able to play Project Phoenix in German, thanks to the new members, even before the Kickstarter pledges reaching localization stretch goals.
