Mega Man Creator's Red Ash Kickstarter Adds PS4 Stretch Goal

Red Ash, the spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends in pre-production at Keiji Inafune’s studio Comcept, could arrive on PlayStation 4 if it accrues enough crowd funding.

Inafune has said that many elements of Red Ash, including its plot, have already been written during pre-production.

In early July, the Kickstarter campaign for Red Ash went live, with its developers seking a baseline funds target of $800,000. Now, with seven days remaining before the Kickstarter deadline, its developers promise a PS4 port if funds reach $1 million.

However, a steep challenge faces the development team, with only $470,000 raised at the time of going to press.

Red Ash: The Indelible Legend is an open-world RPG being masterminded by Inafune, the creator of Mega Man, and is inspired by spin-off title Mega Man Legends.

Inafune is also working on another Kickstarter project, Mighty No. 9. It appears, however, that the Mighty No. 9 release date has been pushed back to 2016. Meanwhile, Inafune is working on a third project, the Xbox One exclusive ReCore.

Several members from the original Mega Man Legends team have been hired to work on Red Ash, should it be funded.

Inafune said of the project: “Red Ash is a very different project from a retro action game like Mighty No. 9, in terms of both scale and concept.”

“The primary goal with Red Ash is to tell a story on a grand scale; all of the primary concepts are clearly visualized in the minds of the creative team, from the overall plot to historical background. Even the final ending scene is planned out.”

Mighty No. 9, meanwhile, is due out on September 15 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Vita, Wii U, 3DS, and PC.
