The team behind Backpack Hero was looking to pull in $20,000 via Kickstarter to fund their game, but that was just for a PC release. If backers wanted to see the game on Switch, they’d have to hit a $70,00 stretch goal. Thankfully, backers were very much up to the challenge.
The Backpack Hero Kickstarter has officially wrapped, and it amassed a whopping $223,000 when all was said and done. That’s obviously more than enough for a Switch version, so we can 100% expect the title to release for Switch at some point down the road.
If you missed out on the Backpack Hero action when we first reported on it, you can get a quick recap on the game itself below.
