Keiji Inafune’s Legends-esque “Red Ash” on Kickstarter ⊟ 

We saw a teaser for “Red Ash” yesterday and didn’t know if the project was a game or an anime. It’s both! One Kickstarter for each, the game and the anime.

RED ASH is an opportunity to not only fulfill Keiji Inafune’s desire to create a game that pays homage to Japanese animation, but also his vision of “immersing players in a freely explorable anime world.” The RED ASH team is spearheaded by Art Director Kazushi Ito and Director Masahiro Yasuma, key members of the original team that pioneered open world game design with Mega Man Legends. With the RED ASH project, they aim to build an action adventure experience with a new level of freedom, complete with the polish expected from such veteran creators.

The game and anime will be developed independently, and take place in parallel universes. So far, the game is slated for PC only, but I’m guessing stretch goals will show up for other platforms.

I’m glad Inafune gets to do a real Kickstarter for what is essentially Mega Man Legends 3. He came really close to it at Capcom with that “Devroom” stuff.

Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon coming to North America this winter ⊟

Is the dungeon super… or is the mystery? There, I just wrote your tagline, Nintendo. This new 3DS game in the Pokemon crossover series promises “even greater, randomly created dungeons that change each time” and appearances by Legendary and Mythical Pokemon.

Like the legendary Salaryman Pikachu?
