In other news, our Yatagarasu AoC Thunderclap campaign reached almost double its goal and has spread the word to over 130,000 people. Thank you to everyone who joined in for your support!

Yatagarasu AoC will be featured at the Mad Catz booth of this year’s Evolution Championship Series that takes place on July 17-19 at the Bally / Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. Juicebox, Jay_Rab, and Seon from Nyu Media will be on hand and ready to take on all-comers during the event, so if you happen to be there, please drop by and say hi. Pictures and updates will be posted to campaign supporters and Yatagarasu-FTG.com over the course of the event.

We are stoked to have our official release, but we’re not done yet! Other rewards are still in production and will be delivered separately, and of course GGPO will follow in an update. (In the meantime, the current developer-created net code has received some excellent feedback to the point of being favorably compared to the Ultra Street Fighter IV XB360 net code.) Please bear with us and we will deliver these as they are completed.

Once again, THANK YOU to all for your support!

Hi, everyone. Shiza here.

Release Day: July 7th
As per last week’s announcement, Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm will release on July 7th, and we would like to thank all of our supporters for your patience over the last year and a half that we spent working on the game.

Development ran a long time over schedule, but the extra work that went into the game has enabled us to further improve the quality. (We really haven’t been lazy all that time!)

The fact that we’ve been able to create this game with no capital, no production staff, and just a few individuals working on the game, is very much thanks to the people who have supported us. The funds raised by our crowdfunding supporters, the support of fighting gamers from around the world, and help from other supporters that gave us the strength to develop the game.

The Yatagarasu dev team has always aimed to create the game that we want to create, how we want to create it. Thanks to YOUR support and input, we’ve been able to do not only that, but to develop it into a game that can be played and enjoyed by many people. It has been our pleasure to create the game with your support. Thank you.
