The Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming indie JRPG Project Phoenix is speeding towards the first stretch goal, having just surpassed the $250,000 mark at the moment of this writing, and more information is filtering through the grapevine.

First of all, we learn that a Wii U port is not being considered at the moment, as a representative of the team clarified:

We’re sorry, we’re not considering the WiiU as a possible port at this time.

In addition to that we the team reassured its backers that the PC version won’t be delayed by the development on other platforms. We also learn that the PS4 and PS Vita version aren’t inlcuded in the pledge rewards because of their higher cost, that would make the deal unprofitable.

Finally, a tease about DRM has been nonchalantly dropped.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Huge announcement about DRM coming very soon!

Will we get a DRM-free option? We’ll have to wait and see on that one, but things look definitely promising, unless you were holding your breath for a Wii U Port, of course.

While we wait to hear about it, you can check out the official Kickstarter page and possibly pledge your own support.

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
