Soul Saga, the Kickstarter funded JRPG inspired by classics from the PS1 era like Suikoden and Final Fantasy, is quickly amassing a strong following of supporters. With 13 days still to go, the game has already almost doubled its minimum Kickstarter funding goal, and over the weekend the game’s developer, Mike Gale (aka Disastercake), announced that other important stretch goals have been met.

For starters, Soul Saga has now been confirmed for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Wii U, in addition to PC/Mac/Linux. Depending on how things shake out with PS4 and Vita interactions, the game should also be cross-buy on those platforms.

Other funded stretch goals also now include the addition of professional voice acting, a Skies of Arcadia style airship exploration system with epic airship combat, and a Job Board feature for in-depth side questing.

Soul Saga is climbing up the Steam Greenlight charts as well. It’s already 50% of the way to the top 100, steadily creeping towards a coveted spot in the top 30 to be greenlit.

Now do yourself a favor: watch the pre-alpha combat demo below, then immediately go give the game a thumbs up vote on Steam Greenlight and, if you feel so inclined, pledge a few bucks to the Kickstarter campaign to help make Soul Saga the best gosh darn JRPG homage it can be.
