Frequently Asked Questions
Due to the need for additional production time to create the content unlocked by our stretch goals, we are currently estimating a delivery date of October 2014.
If there are any additional delays, we will keep you informed via the project's Update section, please check there for the most current information: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1836563008/wakfu-the-animated-series/postsLast updated:
No, they will not be available after the Kickstarter ends.
While we hate to disappoint, the pledges and the majority of their rewards have been exclusively put together for this campaign only, including the Blu-Ray, therefore they are a Kickstarter-only perk and will not be available after the project is complete!
Depending on stock availability, you will still be able to purchase the Making Of Wakfu artbooks, which can be found at our online store: https://www.ankama-shop.com/en/183-artbooks
Krosmaster figurines are also available from a number of retailers and online stores. You can find the retailer nearest you on the Krosmaster site: http://www.krosmaster.com/en/figurine-retailersLast updated:
Once the Kickstarter campaign is over we will be sending each one of the backers a survey to ask for their physical address, T-Shirt sizes, add-on information, and whatever else is necessary to make sure that we have all the information to get your rewards safely to you.Last updated:
That is what we hope!
The Kickstarter campaign and the support received by you is actually a good argument to help us propose Wakfu to the broadcasters but we are also looking at streaming platforms such as Netflix and Hulu.Last updated:
Backers will not be asked to pay extra for shipping.
If you live somewhere quite far away from France and you would like to add extra to your pledge to help us cover additional shipping costs, we won't say no, but it's definitely not required!
Kickstarter will automatically convert your pledge to the proper currency.Last updated:
We are presently working on 2 different locations: One from California, USA and one from France. We may add additional shipping centers if necessary.Last updated:
Will the Blu-ray include both English and French audio? And will it be region free? What will the resolution be?
All features included in the Blu-Ray will also have the original French audio with English, Spanish, and French subtitles.
The Blu-Ray will be region free, so you will be able to enjoy it no matter which country you are from.
The resolution of the Blu-Ray will be full 1080p.Last updated:
The pledge rewards will be Blu-Ray only.
We will be unable to add a DVD version for this project. Our budget for the project was based on choosing between these two technologies, and Blu-ray is the more popular choice at the moment.
We are not totally ruling out the idea of producing an English DVD version in the future if demand merits it, but for this project, it will be Blu-ray only. Sorry to disappoint you, DVD users. :(Last updated:
Each Blu-Ray pack will include:
WAKFU Season 1: 26 episodes of 26 minutes each
Original French Audio with English, Spanish, and French subtitles.
26 minute Noximilian the Watchmaker special episode
45 minute Ogrest the Legend OAV
WAKFU Season 2: 26 episodes of 26 minutes each

All features on the Blu-Ray will be produced in full 1080p resolution.Last updated:
Will you offer digital downloads of episodes as pledge rewards, add-ons, or as an option for people who were unable to pledge during the campaign?
Sorry, but we cannot do that for this project.
One of the main goals of this project is to create a dub that we can offer to streaming platforms like Hulu or Netflix, and we do not want to create a situation where we're seen as being a competitor with these possible future partners.
Again, we apologize for the disappointment.Last updated:
If I backed the project and the payment is underneath someone else's name, whose name will be credited on the website? And will the person paying for it or the one who will back the project receive the rewards?
The name that will appear on the “Thank You List” on the Wakfu website will be your name as it appears on Kickstarter.
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 their choices of add-on.Last updated:
We will be sending out a survey to all backers that fund pledges with a t-shirt upon the successful completion of the project requesting them to pick their desired size.
We have three t-shirt sizes available: Medium, Large, and Extra Large. We are also waiting on a quote regarding possibly offering a XXL size option, which we will keep you informed about. The t-shirt will be unisex.Last updated:
For the Krosmaster figurines, will it be both Yugo and Nox specifically, or will one be randomly selected?
The figurines will be both Yugo and Nox together.Last updated:
What is involved in the $1000 and $4000 pledge reward "Possibility of dubbing a secondary character"?
In order to add your voice to the Wakfu series, Ankama will rent a professional studio within your area where you can record your line(s) for the series. Please be aware that we will not be covering travel expenses to this studio, and that if you live somewhere without a professional-quality studio for rent or you cannot travel to the nearest studio that we can find, we may not be able to use your voice. We will be working out the details with these backers at the end of the project.Last updated:
Each Artbook focuses on 1 to 4 episodes of the season 1. You can see the names of the episodes included on the Artbook covers photos shared on our campaign page.
Each book features content, sketches, and interviews from the creators, animation team and artists relevant to the episodes involved.Last updated:
They each contain 126 pages with both English and French text included. They are softbound with a glossy jacket.Last updated:
Will there be an English version of the theme song? And about the soundtrack download reward, is it going to be the whole season soundtrack or just the opening theme?
If we're funded, yes, there will be an English version of the theme song for the opening.
We also want to make sure that you get the most out of the pledges, therefore it will be the whole Season 1 soundtrack.Last updated:
