Project Phoenix smashes Kickstarter target on first day

JRPG all-stars project Project Phoenix has got off to an amazing start on Kickstarter.

The project launched yesterday with a target of $100,000. Having hit that within nine hours, it closed the day with funding having already surpassed $300,000.

The game brings together some of the biggest names in the world of Japanese RPGs including Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu and Final Fantasy illustrator Kiyoshi Arai as well as Diablo III and Valkyria Chronicles veteran Hiroaki Yura.

Other names are promised depending on how far the game gets on its stretch goals.

Project Phoenix is currently slated for release in mid-2015 on PC, Mac and Linux with talk of a separate smartphone version and perhaps even a release on PS4.
