Akaneiro: Demon Hunters targets Steam release by January 24

Akaneiro Demon Hunters targeting Steam release by January 24
Spicy Horse aims to publish Akaneiro: Demon Hunters on Steam by January 24, although that depends on a big if. Posting on the game's recently unveiled Kickstarter page, Spicy House founder American McGee said if the Japanese-tinted action RPG is selected in the next round of Steam Greenlight, his team will "push to publish the game on Steam by January 24th."

We should know more by tomorrow, as Jan. 15 is the scheduled date for an announcement of the next batch of Greenlight inductees. McGee is confident the game will be selected, stating that with "Akaneiro currently sitting at #3 it's pretty much certain" of a place. McGee hopes getting the Greenlight approval will bring more people and funding to the Kickstarter campaign, which is currently sitting at just under $70,000 of its $200,000 goal with 19 days to go.

Whatever happens, you don't have to wait until January 24 to give Akaneiro a whirl. The game entered open beta last week, and that doesn't close until Wednesday, Jan. 16.
