Neko Entertainment, developers of the Wii U eShop’s critically acclaimed indie game Puddle, have launched a new Kickstarter campaign for Mysterious Cities of Gold, their latest Wii U and 3DS title based on the hit anime series of the same name. Neko originally planned to make the Nintendo and Apple exclusive only in France, where the series is popular. However, after an overwhelming internet response, the company decided to reverse course and develop both international and PC versions of the game, which the Kickstarter is meant to help fund. The campaign’s goal is $30,000, which will go towards costs for porting the game to PC, as well as English voice acting for the dubbing of cinematic scenes.
Although the game was originally scheduled for a fall release, that time frame appears subject to change with the Kickstarter running all the way through September. To date, the project has reached over $5500 of its $30,000 goal.
