After an immense amount of support from fans through the Square Enix Collective, the Kickstarter campaign for Re: Legend began on July 26, 2017 and reached its initial goal of about $51,668 USD in under 18 hours. By August 25, the final day of the campaign, it had been 900% funded with over $465,000 USD from backers.
Re: Legend has a targeted release date of June 2018 on PC, with launches planned for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 some time later. It is currently unknown if the targeted release date will changed due to these unforeseen circumstances.
