CEO of Lab Zero games Peter Bartholow has released some more information in regards to the crowd funding Michael had mentioned on Cross Counter. Here’s what he had to say:
But, yeah, we’re crowdfunding her! This won’t be a typical crowdfunding thing, though: when she comes out she’ll be free for a limited time for everyone, and after three months or so, her price will go up to $5. This is to add a “ticking clock” element to it and try to minimize possible freeloaders, and encourage people to pay $5 now if they were planning on doing it the “normal” way.
We’re still finalizing the rewards, but I can say that we’ll have PC codes w/ beta access for one of the tiers. I think people should be excited about, since it means they’ll get to playtest characters in development and provide feedback, something that… really doesn’t happen outside of Japan? Or even inside of Japan, unless you’re Daigo or something.
The first stretch goal is a male character.
So get your wallets ready to help out, we can do this! To find out more about the conversation hit the thread itself up on the Shoryuken forums!
