Technical Update #15: Blu-Ray Quality and some of your questions!

Posted by Ankama (Creator)

Hey-ho Backers and Wakfu fans!

We're keeping the update short and sweet today because we've been focused on answering some of your private messages today, but we wanted to announce the resolution of a big question that many of you have been asking. We finally got confirmation, and even though it took longer than we anticipated... we hope it was worth the wait:

All of the WAKFU Blu-Rays will be produced in full 1080p.

Yes! Every muscle will be perfectly captured in the highest quality!
Yes! Every muscle will be perfectly captured in the highest quality!

Let's look at some other questions that we are still getting quite a lot:

Can I buy the Blu-Ray on Amazon or your shop after the Kickstarter?

No, we cannot offer the Blu-Ray after the Kickstarter project is over. There are many reasons for this, but they all boil down to one thing: this Kickstarter is the only time in the foreseeable future that the Wakfu series will be available on Blu-Ray in English. We won't say that it can't happen after this, but it probably won't be us producing them if it does happen.

Can I buy the episodes on iTunes/Netflix/Hulu/etc after the Kickstarter?

We hope so! That is the goal of this project. However we don't have these partnerships settled yet, so we can't yet tell you which services will be carrying the series or for how much.

What should I do if I want to back the project but I don't have access to a credit card that Kickstarter accepts?

Many backers have had success using pre-paid credit cards from Visa or their bank. If you are having problems with a pre-paid card, please contact Kickstarter for help ASAP: https://www.kickstarter.com/contact

I'm from [insert distant country] and I want to make sure, do I have to pay extra for shipping?

No! The cost of shipping is included in your pledge. If you want to add some extra to help us, we will appreciate it, and if you don't, we will still happily ship your rewards. Because we love you. =)

If I get all of the artbooks as add-ons, can I get a Collector's Box also?

No, the number of boxes we can make is limited, so we cannot offer these boxes as add-ons. Even if we could offer the box, its cost would not be much less than the Quilby pledge, which was created to give people who want the artbooks (and only the artbooks) an option. This is because the box is costly to make and shipping the full set of books and the box is very, very costly (books + box are quite heavy).

Can I get digital versions of the artbooks, add digital artbooks to my pledge, or swap out the artbooks that come with my pledge?

No. Sorry about this, but we can only offer digital versions of artbooks 1 & 2, they cannot be offered as add-ons, and we cannot swap out artbooks.

We hope that helps! We are also working on a shipping masterpost to answer your questions about things like tubes for posters, tracking numbers, or import taxes.

Thank you all for your great questions and for your support! We are so close to reaching the next stretch goal and so little time is left, we can't wait to see what happens!

      I hope that folks that were unfortunate enough to miss this kickstarter will still be able to get a bluray of this amazing animated show. Perhaps we will kick Wakfu Season 3 after this or something and they'll get another shot at it

      @KIRK ROGERS: Some of the pledge tiers include PDFs of artbooks 1 and 2 as rewards. These are the only digital versions of any artbooks that are available and they are only available with their respective pledges, they cannot be included as add-ons.

      @Henry: Sorry, we will not be able to share images of the posters that are higher-rez than those available on the Kickstarter or the artists' Deviantart accounts.

      I paid the pledge for the physical two first art books, but I want them all! Will be the rest of the art books available after the campaign ends?

      Will we be able to see a higher res digital version of the 4 posters, at my max at $400 and would like to see what they look like, even if I can;t get them physically.

      The digital PDF art books are #1 and 2 found in certain pledge levels, they won't be offering the others as PDF, and they will not be add-ons. Some pledges come with art books 1 and 2 (hardcover) they won't be swapping those out for other art books. That's my understanding.

      im very confused on the last answer
      we cant swap for digital art books they cant do add on but the can offer them?
      how do we get the digital art-books then?
      im happy with hard copy i just didn't understand the answer?
      any one put this in layman's terms for me?

      The fact that I can get Wakfu on DVD with subs is the best thing ever. I was happy to back an know I wa getting s1 but then it came out to being 1 *&* 2! Now it's limited edition regardless that it is being shipped in a LE box as production ATM is limited in itself.
      Thank you, Ankama! Thank you so much!

      Glad it'll be in 1080. Audio question: will the bluray have a lossless audio track (DTS HD Master or Dolby TrueHD)? Or will it just contain a normal Dolby Digital mix?

      "We are also working on a shipping masterpost to answer your questions about things like tubes for posters, tracking numbers, or import taxes"
      Good I prefer if the shipping have tracking number, and more if in the box have valuable stuff like the BD and Xa's signature.
