Hey all,

First off, Happy New Year to all of our backers! Hope you all had great holidays and are looking forward to a productive 2019!

It’s been an exciting new year so far over here at New Wave Toys. Our team arrived in China on January 3rd to oversee the pilot production run. Everything went smoothly, all of our adjustments have been made, and now we’re heading into mass production starting today! 

Barring any further complications, we are solidly on track to complete mass production before the national Chinese New Year break. Huzzah! Red envelopes for everyone! 

Tempest x RepliCade does not come with red envelope.

Next up: Tempest x RepliCade Hands-on Update

Over the next couple days, we will be monitoring the full mass production run before heading back to the States. Our in-country QC leads will continue to walk the line doing spot checks as well as doing final pack out inspections. 

For our next update, we will do a complete preview of the final product, possibly including a gameplay video, but definitely including lots of pictures! Stay tuned!

Thanks everyone for your support as we get through the last part of the process!

      Looking great! Super excited to get mine :D

      But um, why no SFII updates at all? It's been forever now since it was soft announced, but zero details since then!

      I'm looking forward to your Tempest x RepliCade Hands-on Update. I'm also looking forward to your announcement on the next project of Dragon's Lair after the Street Fighter II Champion Edition.
