After a month long Kickstarter Akanerio: Demon Hunters has emerged victorious in their quest to raise $200,000 in order to provide features such as co-op gameplay, crafting, Linux support, as well as IOS and Android versions of the game. Perhaps the most important addition brought on by the Kickstarter is the inclusion of multiplayer support.  Prior to the Kickstarter, Spicy Horse Games was unsure whether or not they would be able to include co-op in a timely manner after release. Now, with Akaneiro safely funded players will be able to enjoy the action RPG with their friends as opposed to just their offline NPC counterparts.

As to when the additional features brought on by the successful Kickstarter will actually be implemented is still unknown.  American McGee, CEO of Spicy Horse Games commented on this stating “over the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a look at what it takes to implement these features and get them out in a timely manner. We’ve also still got contributions coming in on the Paypal page, which may influence which features wind up where on the plan.”

The game is now live and if you are interested in checking out the Japanese folklore inspired ARPG you can visit the official site here.

    I am going to play this game after it is oficially released… right now it looks too repetitive and unbalanced.

    • Jellopy on February 5, 2013

      I played a bit during the beta. It’s quite good but I agree with you, arpgs tend to be repetitive and i don’t want to burn myself out on it before multiplayer is added. Graphics are gorgeous and really do have a similar feel to okami and muramasa demon blade

        • Jellopy on February 5, 2013

          I find it much more annoying to see the ten posts beneath the one saying ‘mounted’ flaming the individual so I am with you on this. People have to find new reasons to be butthurt or they just aren’t happy i guess.

          • Guderian on February 6, 2013

            Mounted! (on Jellopy’s comment)

        • Okofire on February 6, 2013

          1, Learn english
          2, Dont copy other names
          3, Kids like you shouldnt play those games. They arent mentally ready for it.
          4, I am against it because he even failed the *mounted*
          5, Go cry somewhere else. In real life you cant even punch somebody you weakling.

    • Kimwer on February 5, 2013

      So great to see people protecting articles from the “Mounted” loners. Keep up the good work.

      • Rufinus on February 5, 2013
