As Ouya's official June 25th retail release nears, the company has secured $15 million in additional funding to "meet increased demand" among other things.

The money comes from the investment firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB) with help from other sources, including Nvidia, and Ouya says that it will be used to help with the retail launch as well as support the Android gaming console's development community. Interestingly, not all the pre-release Kickstarter backers have gotten theirs yet.

The company also announced that KPCB general partner and former longtime Electronic Arts executive Bing Gordon will join Ouya's board of directors.
