The Kickstarter campaign for The Witcher: Ronin, a hardcover collector’s edition of the manga, has ended. Thank you all for your support, not only for financing the project in 2 hours and 16 minutes, but also for reaching the 750% of our original goal”, They have celebrated on social networks.
Battle against evil spirits
On their Kickstarter page, CD Projekt RED notes that they have assembled a creative team to “explore a different perspective on the world of The Witcher.” Instead of looking to Western and European mythology for inspiration, its authors have explored the Japanese tradition to tailor your vision. “In a world like this, the role of a professional monster hunter is essential,” because the Yokai and the Oni, the Japanese demon spirits, constantly cause trouble. The manga promises a lot of action, with Geralt of Rivia brandishing his sword and using his powers against enemies.
To date, the most recent title in the witcher saga is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and its two expansions. This open world video game puts us in the shoes of Geralt himself, who travels the world accepting the orders and contracts offered to him. The studio has commissioned Saber Interactive a version optimized for the new generation, which will be marketed as a standalone title, although those who own the original version will be able to update for free on PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC. It is still planned for 2021.
