Class of Heroes 2 is Kickstarter’s Latest Victim

on March 28, 2012 6:30 PM

Kickstarter has claimed yet another victim. This time it’s MonkeyPaw Games and a localization of JRPG Class of Heroes 2. Okay, so maybe Kickstarter isn’t the aggressor here. Anywho, the folks behind this fundraising attempt say they believe the campaign to raise the $500,000 is feasible because “the fans are there.”

MonkeyPaw is well on its way to reaching its goal. So far nearly $22,000 has been raised and the deadline for the final pledge is 29 days away on April 29. The least you’ll be able to pledge in order to reserve a copy of the game should the goal be met is $59. Anything below that is a “support tier” and gets your name in the game’s code. It doesn’t show up in the credits, but it’s in there. You can visit the PSP game’s Kickstarter page to check out the full list of rewards.
