Our Amazing Project Partners
UPDATE: We neglected to mention that the $100 backer level includes all the digital rewards of the previous tiers. Physical rewards include limited edition CDs by our tour partners.
A 10-minute TGS featurette will be released following the successful funding of the campaign, starring A_Rival and documenting our featured events in Japan. Interviews with Japanese artists will be subtitled in English for international audiences.
Backers of this project will be the first to hear A_Rival's unreleased STREET FIGHTER X MEGA MAN REMIX ALBUM featuring brand new arrangements by A_Rival, Asagen, BOKKADENci, Foilverb, Cynbe, Robokabuto and other artists.
Of course, if the Kickstarter's funding goal is not met, the featurette, album bundle and remix album will not be available to backers. If this content interests you, consider supporting our independently funded efforts / posting a shout-out through twitter, facebook or your social networks of choice.
These talk events and concerts are being made possible by the Mega Ran Japan Tour, Dot A's art for the event fliers, translation by Yoshi Miyamoto, sound design by Pocket Groovy's and web development by Xu Pan.

Organizing events in Japan for overseas game developers and in collaboration with Japanese artists requires in-depth planning.
Through crowdfunding with Kickstarter, our team has managed to fund unique projects that otherwise would never have been possible. This has allowed for our development of a documentary series on DVD, the Rokko Chan Soundtracks disc release, and several live events in Japan.
Working with Kickstarter has made these initiatives possible, allowing for continued collaborations with our project parterns in Japan.
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges of the Tokyo Gaming Showcase involve organizing live events in Japan for international participants and documenting that content through multimedia recordings.
Having successfully completed previous projects, delivering album bundles, live events and DVD documentaries, lead us to believe that this is within our means.
Kickstarting experimental multimedia projects is not without its risks. We discovered in our funding of the FAMI-MODE DVD that the media of choice failed to convey the full visual quality of our footage. As a result, we opted to create a Blu-ray disc option to deliver the highest possible visual quality for our backer rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
