Rewrite+ Kickstarter Succeeds In Its Final Hours

    rewrite+ kickstarter

    A critically acclaimed visual novel is finally going to be localized. The crowdfunding campaign for the latest version of Key’s Rewrite succeeded. Sekai Project raised $207,200 from 2,087 backers for the Rewrite+ Kickstarter. This means the PC game will be released both digitally and physically.

    For a while, things seemed dim for the Rewrite+ Kickstarter. It was at about 90% funded when it was 48 hours away from the end of its campaign, which resulted in the appearance of a piece of support art of Sizuru from Sakana Toujou, who put together the Rewrite: Side-B manga adaptation. Then, the day before it was set to expire, the $180,000 goal was hit and passed.

    Rewrite+ follows Kotarou Tennouji. He’s a high school student who can use an Aurora power to create weapons and Rewrite ability to modify his body to make himself stronger. However, this comes at a cost, as it can make him closer to becoming a familiar. He ends up joining his school’s occult research club, investigating his town and having a chance to fall in love with Akane, Chihaya, Kotori, Lucia, or Sizuru. However, there is much more to it than that…

    A Rewrite localization has been a long time coming. Back in 2016, VisualArts said at ACEN 2016 that a localization of Rewrite+, the updated version of the game, was planned. As a reminder, this version of the game has fully voiced characters, new art, and a revised story.

    The estimated PC delivery of the Rewrite+ localization is November 2020. The visual novel is immediately available on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Vita, and PC in Japan.
