For a good while we thought these little guys got the ax. But today, after just launching their 7'' Mega Man line, Kidrobot has taken the veil off of the Mega Man Capsule Collection -- they survived where other Mega Man products have not.
The Capsule Collection, which spans miniature figures and keychains, goes live on August 4th via Kidrobot.com. Price tags are expected to range between $5.99-6.99.
Red Ash is officially going into production, Comcept has announced. The developers are teaming with Fuze Entertainment to bring the KalKannon Incident to PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The Kickstarter, from here on out, is for "more content."
Red Ash backers and skeptics, take note. Comcept has released a playable build of the Red Ash mockup developed by HYDE, Inc. You can directly download it to your PC or play it in your browser via Unity web player. You'll find a rundown of both keyboard and game pad controls here. It's free to play for everyone, even if you're not a backer.
Before you download, be aware this is a mockup in every sense of the word. It's pre-alpha for demonstrative purposes. Although Red Ash is a third person shooter, no gunplay is present here. The mock-up is restricted to exploring a small world, interacting with townsfolk, objects, and discovering hidden secrets lurking in the shadows. The presentation is a little rough around the edges but that's expected at this point in development.
This is a pretty nice surprise from Comcept. But once again I feel its arrival is a little too late in the campaign. I don't know if it will be enough to revive pledges.
Red Ash currently sits at $477,936 of its $800,000 goal. Five days to go.
Straight from the Wonder Fest showroom floor, here's our first good look at X-Plus Toys' super-sized Zero figure. I didn't think it was possible but he actually towers over X! I'd wager he's at least 14'' to 15'' tall!
About time, right? Nine days to go on the Kickstarter, and Comcept has at last showed off some prototype Red Ash footage. HYDE Inc. produced this mock-up featuring Beck from Mighty No. 9 as a placeholder. It's early, it's rough but it gives you a basic idea of what they're going for.
What do you think? Is this enough to drive Red Ash's funds forward? Or is it too late? The clock is ticking...
