The Kickstarter campaign for the co-op monster raising and life simulation game, Re:Legend, has revealed two new stretch goals this week after receiving $279,798 USD from backers.
Developed by Magnus Games with help from the Square Enix Collective, Re:Legend had a campaign goal of $51,284 — which means the Kickstarter project has made more than 5x its original goal. To celebrate, Magnus has shown off new weapon types, a new magnus, and a brand new mechanic as well.
In addition to great swords, dual blades, staves, and bows, four additional weapon types have been announced, doubling the total number of types. The four new weapon types are detailed below.
Knuckles: A counterpart to the dual swords weapon which are infused with magic to cast protective and offensive spells and have high offensive power.
Great Shields: Heavy weapons and a counterpart to the great sword weapon which can also be used to cast protective and offensive spells.
Chakrams: Gigantic boomerang-like weapons that have a long range and cut up everything in their path.
Prisms: Crystals infused with a high concentration of magic and boost magic power. These weapons can be used for quicker spell casting and give the player more mobility.
New Magnus and Magnus Breeding
In addition to revealing three new Magnus — the Seacolt, Dunehound, and Nerlict Bug species — the current final stretch goal has been revealed to be Magnus breeding. The details of the stretch goal are unknown at this time, but more information is expected soon. It’s also possible there will be another stretch goal added once the Magnus breeding stretch has been reached.
The Kickstarter campaign for Re: Legend will end on August 25. Re: Legend has an expected release date of June 2018 for PC. The Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One releases of the game are expected to be come around six months after the PC release.
