Route Double kickstarter’s goal reached

Just as of late video game localizer and publisher Sekai project has announced that their kickstarter campaign for the localization of  Route Double -Before Crime * After Days-:Xtend Edition has reached its goal of $135,000. When press time began it had reached $138,000 in total raised for it. Now a digital only PS Vita port of the game was also added last week for $99 in addition to the $225 previously announced pledge. The high price was discussed by Sekai Project as they said that instead of adding a stretch goal that would be estimated at $500,000 which may not even be met, they went with this option instead. Now the PS Vita port will not be releasing the same time as the PC port if the project is funded as it will at least take a year to finish from what has been stated. In Japan the port will only be released digitally due to size limitations on the PS Vita. The game release is also place held at this coming March.

Now the kickstarter is set for January 5th and the goal for it is set at $135,000 with bonuses such as autograph boards by character designer Mikeou and a collectors edition as well. Sekai Project has confirmed they will be releasing Route Double -Before Crime * After Days-: Xtend Edition in collaboration with Lemnisca Translations. The game originally released on the Xbox 360 on June 14th 2012 and would later get a PC release on September 28th 2012, and PS3 release on October 24th 2013 and a PS Vita release on that same day. Its PC release is Route Double -Before Crime * After Days- while its PS3 and PS Vita release was Route Double -Before Crime * After Days-: Xtend Edition. Another edition of the game titled Route Double-Before Crime * After Days-: Yeti Beast would also be release for the PC April 30th 2015. Below is a plot summary of the game quoted from ANN and provided by Sekai Project:
