If you love fighting games then you're likely aware of the Japanese indie title Yatagarasu. Those who aren't familiar with the fighter might want to check out our review. In any case, the game was a success with a niche of fans and apparently that fanbase has grown tremendously.
Indie publisher Nyu Media helped run a Kickstarter campaign for Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm this past month on Inidegogo. The intent was to perfect Yatagarasu with more features, new characters, and better online and localization. They were asking $68,000.
Three days before the campaign ends they have succeeded! Although the community for it may not be as large as, say, Skullgirls but they have still done quite well. Now the team is working toward stretch goals such as GGPO online support and additional characters.
