Battle Prep: Libra Backer Shipping and Game Release Date Announcement!
Vampire Princess Army,
One of the most important dates since our Kickstarter victory has finally arrived! We hope everyone is ready to get back into battle mode, because today we are unleashing three BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS and we need your help to spread the word. Onward!
I. Kickstarter Shipping Date Set: Backers Come First!
For backers, rewards will begin shipping on MAY 1st, 2017 and continue over the course of the following days until completed. If you need to update your physical shipping address, the deadline is April 17th. Once addresses are locked down, changes will not be possible. You can make changes on your BackerKit survey here.
Yes! We know many of you can’t wait to finally see all the sexy Libra goods, so we’ll be taking a bunch of pictures during the packing process: the moments before your “long-awaited” rewards are sealed and sent directly from Japan… to you!
II. Official Game Release Date Set!
Libra of the Vampire Princess’s official game release date is set for MAY 16th, 2017, available on Steam and at LvXERO. Other online retailers have snapped up the chance to carry Libra as well. We're honored! More details on those shops coming soon.
Pre-order purchases at LvXERO, our official online shop, will start shipping on May 16th. To take advantage of Libra’s pre-order price points, please visit LvXERO before time runs out!
*FYI: You probably noticed these dates are a little further out than we had originally planned. There are two main reasons for this:
- As you know, Libra is our first full-scale visual novel. We needed extra time for many details that we could not have imagined from the start. Through the process though, we’ve had your support, encouragement, and excitement to keep us moving forward each day. We would like to thank you for your patience and for supporting us along this epic journey. Our victory is finally in sight!
- We also did not want to launch in the middle of our friend Frontwing’s Kickstarter (March 7th - April 6th) and game release (April 28th). If you haven’t already seen their kicka$$ game Phantom Trigger, be sure to check it out here:
III. Game Logo Reveal!
The original Japanese logo for Libra was pretty complex, so when it came time to make the English logo, we were very grateful to have XERO’s original logo design team step up to take on this behemoth. A lot of hard work, dedication, and precision went into making this masterpiece and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Between now and game launch, we have many fun and exciting things planned, so keep a sharp lookout and be ready for anything!
Until the next IMPORTANT UPDATE...! :D
Onward to Victory,
MiKandi Japan and XERO
