Die Gute Fabrik’s innovative local multiplayer compendium Sportsfriends has crossed its Kickstarter target, meaning that it will release on PlayStation 3 next fall. With just four hours left to go, the title has earned $155,339 of its $150,000 target. The game will be marketed as part of Sony’s Pub Fund initiative – but the developer needed the cash to actually finance the production of the port in the first place. It means that Johann Sebastian Joust – a kind of physical party game that takes advantage of the PlayStation Move – will finally find a home on the PlayStation Network.

Of course, if you’re reading this early enough, there’s still plenty of time to pledge your support to the project. Offering just $15 will guarantee you a copy of the title when it releases in 2013. Meanwhile, $100 will earn you a spot in the credits and a t-shirt. Enough said, right?

Update: After some hiccups – including major pledges getting pulled – the title has finally crossed its target with $152,436. That means that the title will be coming to PlayStation 3 next year.
