Sorry, the only versions planned at this time are those listed in What are the different versions of Yatagarasu?.
This list will be updated as new platforms are added.
While the original game is the same,Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm (PC) and The Legend of Raven (PS VITA) are separately projects, to be developed and published by separate teams*, so transferring pre-orders will not be possible.
* The Legend of Raven is under development and will be published by Nicalis.
*Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm will be developed by the Yatagarasu developer PDW:HOTAPEN, and localized and published by Nyu Media.
The current version of Yatagarasu v4.3 crashes when Hina is selected due to a sound file that uses double byte characters in the filename and so doesn’t not play nicely with the English system locale setting.
This can be fixed by changing the system locale to Japanese (requires reset) o r by using Microsoft’s Applocale application. (The only downside we've found to changing system locale to Japanese is that certain websites will detect it and default their contents to Japanese aller.)
The Yatagarasu dev team is aware of the problem and may issue a new build that addresses the problem. Please contact Rice Digital for details.
It’s best to adjust the delay for online play over long distances. When high ping occurs, pressing the "O" or "P" key will adjust the delay and resolve most issues regarding lag.

▶ What will happen to the other new characters that didn’t win the vote? Will you hold another fundraiser to add them?
We expect they will be added to a future upgrade or version of Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm, but there are no firm plans beyond adding the recently funded new characters and making Yatagarasu AoC the best game we possibly can. The beta is planned to begin in January 2014 and the private beta forum will go live at the same time.

Sorry, no. They will be treated as standalone products.
Sorry, no. We had initially thought to extend the PayPal campaign, but have since decided not to. This will allow the developer to focus on implementing the newly-funded features in Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm and make as timely a release as possible.
Custom perks and items that were promised as limited exclusives (e.g. custom content for the game, the limited edition controller) won't be make available for purchase. We may make other items available for purchase, but this will be decided at a later date. Please watch out for updates!
