Late last year the team at SnowCastle games launched their Festival of Magic Kickstarter in an attempt to raise more funds for the turn-based RPG. The first Kickstarter didn’t do as well as the team hoped due to launching a week before Thanksgiving, so they decided to cancel it and wait until the holidays were over in order relaunch the Kickstarter. The new Kickstarter will go live on February 20, so if you’re looking forward to backing the game you have just under another month to wait. We’ve been in touch with the developers to provide an exclusive look at Wii U features for the game, so stay tuned. local_offer festival of magic Kickstarter Nintendo snowcastle games wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when Shy Guy This looks very promising, can’t wait. 🙂 Wayne Beck Good Luck to them. I really want this Kickstarter to Succeed,. Aliaric Seido Western Rune Factory? John Stevens Seems pretty cool. I’m a big fan of Strategy/RPGs and this seems to be influenced by some of my favorites. RichM I think I might support this in that I love turn-based RPGs and it’s only coming to the Wii U and PCs. ~OMEGA~ :/ do they have a mailing address where i can send cash? Entropyguy Hm. I might actually contribute to this, and I never back kickstarters. But I’d really like this game to exist. RyuNoHadouken bring out the shovels TULFich The Wii U needs an MMORPG!! Lots of wonders could be done on the platform for the genre. Shy Guy Oh for sure, the gamepad’s touchscreen almost seems made for the sort of controls you see in a game like World of Warcraft or Rift (assuming you use the on screen icons and not keyboard shortcuts). TULFich Can you imagine Macros made by one simple touch or one touch button config like the windwaker HD? man it would be a millionaire idea TULFich Remember when I said MMORPG? well monster hunter frontier G is coming this year for ps3 and Wii U, so damn excited 😀 (is not the MMO I expected, but still looks great) Shy Guy Having played a bunch of PC based MMOs and feeling like the genre has become a bit stale lately I think I’ll be watching this new Monster Hunter closely. Kyle too bad they couldnt even handle pokemon bank 🙁 Booboabao I saw it happen to the PS and Xbox networks in the past(network congestion and structure issues). To be expected and easily remedied. juancamiloarq I backed this project when it was launched on Kickstarter a few month back. I guess the timing wasn’t right for it, but I wasn’t hoping they would relaunch it this soon… God, I’m already backing to many projects. What am I gonna do at this pace? Daniel Only pokemon can pull off these sorta of “wait, then attack” games.. This looks dreadfully boring. Tim van Broekhoven You mean turnbased games? Lol nf_zeta FINALLY, its really wierd that going back actually seems like going forward for RPGs, things like stat altering mechanics (other than the obvious armor and weapons), iteration between different spells and attacks, the home base idea as shown in some BOF to help to feeling of progress. All of these things are missing in most current day RPGs in favor of high graphic 1st or 3rd person plain gameplay games. Dell Goodman I instantly backed this when it first came onto KickStarter, and I will instantly back it when it re-releases it’s Kickstart project. I can’t wait for a turn based RPG to come to the Wii U! Dell Goodman Here is a link to the ALPHA demo of this game for PC/Mac/Linux, this was the link they posted to people who backed their original Kickstarter. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/171497873/festival-of-magic/posts/679255?ref=dash Windows: https://www.wetransfer.com/downloads/7e8ad57e8622be64b982215cc7c5532820131127160256/04dd73 Mac: https://www.wetransfer.com/downloads/0d5b57e16ff10ebd18168f0740e8c5c420131127161621/a6fd7f Linux: https://www.wetransfer.com/downloads/09798237710cfbbbdfdb9efe9e123c7f20131127161922/5f8e9c Kenshin0011 Nintendo DS games announced for Wii U Mario Kart 8 to release in May Iwata admits Gamepad is Wii U’s current weakness On demand service to come across Nintendo devices and be linked to your Nintendo Network ID Nintendo to license it’s first party franchises to other devs to make games (on Nintendo hardware) YayGs Off topic, but I hope everyone get’s a chance to take a look at this: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/events/140130/index.html GmailIsDown so they are looking to diversify into areas other than gaming. as for wii u, they want to focus on utilizing the gamepad more instead of doing aggressive price cuts. they will continue to push for unified account, which is good. they also talk about expanding to “new markets” (China being the notable one), and hint about selling their hardware and software at a much lower prices in those markets. not sure if i like where they are going but good luck. Zuxs13 Oh boy i hope Wii U daily gets on this stuff soon. DS on Wii U Quick Boot games Smartphone integration unified account system Mario Kart 8 release in May 2014!! and more… http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/events/140130/index.html Shota enough! people already posted it. wiiudaily is gonna put the news later today about the briefing.
