Hello everyone,

It is time for our next technical update of the day and today we will share with you the latest changes that were made to our Kickstarter campaign page as well as answers to some of your most asked questions. So let’s get started shall we?

WAKFU: The Animated Series Campaign Page Updates

New Stretch Goal Board

Thanks to your great support and the continuation of this adventure together we updated the stretch goal board and it is now clearly showing the current status of the campaign as well as detailing better each stretch goals based on your feedback.

New Season 2 Character introduction profiles

You might have already noticed but today we have also added the new character profiles for Season 2! We are also planning an update focusing on Season 2 to properly introduce them to you.  

Season 1 and 2 Official Artworks

For your viewing pleasure the official Season 2 Artwork is now joining the Season 1 Artwork!

New Season 2 Synopsis

For those of you who are discovering or even rediscovering the WAKFU Animated Series, you may wonder... so what is Season 2 about? Well wait no further as we added an introduction of Season 2 as part of the Synopsis on our campaign page.

And it is now time for our “Questions & Answers”!

First we would like to thank all of you for all the comments and the messages received, while we aim to be able to answer each one of you personally, we would like to continue to share some your questions and share the answers with everyone as well as updating the FAQ with the most frequently asked of these questions. So drum roll… let’s get started! And we may have a spoiler alert on a pledge reward!

Where will the physical rewards packages be shipped from?

We are presently working on 2 different locations: One from California, USA and one from France.

What will Ankama do if you got around $250,000 CAD instead of meeting the next stretch goal and the campaign would end, where would that money go towards?

Thanks to your support, we hope to reach $300,000 CAD, but if this case scenario was to happen, we would keep putting your investment to good use and work on dubbing one of the OAVs of Stretch Goal #3 or more depending on the final cost.

If I back the project, and the payment is under someone else's name, will the person paying for it or the one who will back the project receive the rewards?

At the end of the campaign we will be sending a survey to all the backers, to confirm the information of the pledge receiver, including shipping information, T-Shirt size and to confirm the rewards.

How about an Add-on option for those that want a second copy of the Blu-Ray set (for potential gift purposes, etc.)? 

Due to the growing requests, which makes us smile, as it is a way to also further share WAKFU with your friends, we are seriously considering it and will be updating you as soon as a decision is made, but we really like the idea, so thank you for suggesting it.

Is the background/theme music for the show done in house or by another composer?

It is all done in house in our own studio.

About the soundtrack download reward, is it going to be the whole season soundtrack or just the opening theme?

We want to make sure that you get the most out of the pledges, therefore it will be the whole Season 1 soundtrack.

Will the content of the Blu-Ray be uncensored?

Yes, it will be uncensored.

Are the Krosmaster Yugo and Nox figurines different from the ones from the Krosmaster Kickstarter campaigns? Also do they come with their character’s card?

No, they are the same, which gives you an opportunity to have them via this campaign as well and yes, they will be coming with their own character’s card.

Is there any information on what the item that can be redeemed in the Wakfu MMO is?

Are you ready for a spoiler alert? We will be sharing more details on that item soon but we can already tell you that the mystery WAKFU MMO redeemable item has been confirmed to be: Nox’s Hat!

Regarding the $4,000 CAD “Nox” pledge, do you have an estimated idea of when the trip would happen? And will the trip dates be decided together?

As far as an estimated idea, the best time would be April 2014, but yes, we will be organizing a Skype call with any “Nox Pledgers” prior to decide what would best suit them so that we can organize it together.

Which art book should I request to get the most art of Evangelyne and/or Amalia?

We would recommend Artbook #8 for Amalia and Artbook #3 for Evangelyne.

Would it be possible to offer the pdfs of the Artbooks as an add-on?  

We are sorry to disappoint but we are not able to do so, the Artbooks are physical rewards only.  

What is the deference between the Artbooks 1 through 9 (do they focus on a specific character, specific episodes, and part of production...)? What will they contain (sketches, concept art, finished art, advertising art, character art & profiles, back story & lore...)?  

Yes, each Artbook focus on 1 to 4 episodes of the season 1 each, as you can see on the Artbook covers photos shared on our campaign page, and yes, they will contain all those with the addition of  special content from the creators, animation team and artists.  

How many pages will the Artbooks have and is the text in the Artbooks in English or French?

They each contain 126 pages with both English and French text included.  

And this concludes our Technical Update #7, we hope to continue to share new information with you, but stay tuned as we are also planning a special focus on Season 2 update today!

      Any chance of getting the "Making of Wakfu: Noximilian the Watchmaker" art book as one of the rewards? I'd love to get it as part of the complete collection.

      Quick technical Q: Is the Ep 27 making of book (outlined in update #11) to be included as part of the complete book collection in $400+ pledge tiers, or does an add-on fee need to be added?

      Thinking ahead, can the box be sized to accommodate all ten in the set?(the special ep book might be lonely otherwise!) Additionally, Will the books be packed flat or on their spines?

    3. Michael Michaelides on

      @Michael English, I'm pretty sure Ankama meant "unedited", not "Uncencored" XD

    4. RogueDarkJedi on

      @Spazturtle: Of course.

    5. Yaanu on

      I have the oddest feeling that they're bending the truth when they claim that the content will be completely uncensored.

    6. Bernd Jankowiak on

      @Gordhan, there will be no censorship, so I don't know how you would be turning that on or off.

      "Which art book should I request to get the most art of Evangelyne and/or Amalia?"

      We all know why people were asking that question.

      Will there be a way, to turn the censorship on and off?

    9. Bernd Jankowiak on

      since I have the artbooks already and people might wander which episodes are covered in which book, here is the list:
      1: Episode 1 & 2
      2: Episode 3, 4 & 5
      3: Episode 6 & 7
      4: Episode 8 & 9
      5: Episode 10, 11 & 12
      6: Episode 13, 14 & 15
      7: Episode 16, 17 & 18
      8: Episode 19, 20, 21 & 22
      9: Episode 23, 24, 25 & 26

      About the $4000 CAD pledge, j'habite à une heure de route des studios... il n'y aurait pas une offre similaire moins chère (Bruxelles-Roubaix c'est quand même pas le même prix du billet que Ottawa-Roubaix ^^) ?
