A really brief post because i just saw this over on Indiegogo. The developers of doujin fighting game Yatagarasu (including 3 former SNK staff members) are running an Indiegogo campaign for an update. The most important news is a worldwide release, but there will also be two additional characters if the funding goal is reached. Currently, it's about $4,500 short of that goal, so it might become a close call.
It's really tough for those indie devs in countries where Kickstarter doesn't operate to get funding - this would probably have gotten two times its funding goal on Kickstarter. It's a shame about the stretch goal characters, but at least the basic goal for an English release and two new characters is still within reach. It's another flexible funding campaign, but who knows what falling short of the goal will mean for the planned features...
Link to the Campaign
EDIT: If you want to check out the original version first, you can also buy it through Let's Build a Doujin Bundle!
There you have to buy at least two games together (some of the other choices are Croixleur and Ether Vapor Remaster), but the minimum pay is $0.75 per game, so that's not much of a problem. Note that this version of the game is in Japanese and might cause some hassle on non-Japanese computers, though.
