The developers behind Project Rap Rabbit have stated that a Nintendo Switch version of the game is more likely than ever. Project Rap Rabbit is a brand new rhythm game coming from the creative minds that brought us PaRappa the Rapper and Gitaroo Man, two of the most influential rhythm games ever developed. We were incredibly excited to see the Kickstarter appear, confirming that this rumored project was indeed in the works, and this writer took it upon himself to back it immediately. There was only one problem: a Nintendo Switch version of the game was mentioned, but only as a stretch goal, and that stretch goal was unreasonable.
You see, the original funding goal requested to make the game happen was just over $1.1 million. That's an admirable goal, and very doable assuming enough people hear about the game. The Nintendo Switch version, however, was locked behind a $4 million stretch goal. This left a bad taste in the mouths of many, and so the developers responded quickly.
"We’ve been blown away by the response since we first unveiled Project Rap Rabbit four days ago. Over the last 24 hours we’ve been taking the time to digest all your comments, wishes and feedback, and one request stands out above all others: a significantly lower Nintendo Switch goal.
"We want to let you know that we hear you loud and clear. As a result, we are busy re-examining our Stretch Goal format to prioritise a Nintendo Switch version of Project Rap Rabbit above other features.
"This is a process we need to undertake carefully and methodically, so please bear with us while we piece together our new plan. We’ll update our Stretch Goals as soon as we possibly can – until then, keep the comments flooding in on social media and here on the Kickstarter page, and we’ll continue to answer all your questions."
This is how you gain favor in the eyes of fans, right here. These developers have proven that they're actively engaged in the community supporting them, and willing to make changes based on feedback. It sounds like we can count on a much more reasonable Nintendo Switch funding stretch goal in the future, and we'll be sure to update you guys as soon as we learn what it is.
