Full Disclosure: I have financially backed Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night on Kickstarter.
Koji Igarashi’s Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has ended on Kickstarter, raking in just over $5.5 million dollars in crowdfunding.
Almost 65,000 backers pledged money towards bringing the game to PC, Mac, Linux, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, and PS Vita.
The crowdfunding campaign surged past the remaining stretch goals, meaning the game will now be getting a prequel mini-game on all platforms, a roguelike dungeon mode, a boss revenge mode (which lets you play as the bosses).
While Koji Igarashi (of Castlevania fame) is heading the project, he is joined by a star-studded cast of veteran developers like iconic composers Michiru Yamane and Ippo Yamada; legendary artists Ayami Kojima and Yoshitaka Amano; and fan-favorite voice actors David Hayter and Robbie Belgrade.
If development progresses as scheduled, Inti Creates, Koji Igarashi and crew will ship Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night some time in 2017.
