Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the Kickstarter Metroidvania project from the mind of Koji Igarashi, has been delayed to 2019.
Igarashi posted an update to Bloodstained’s Kickstarter page citing an interest in raising the game’s quality level. A beta backer demo recently took place and Igarashi wants to make sure resulting feedback was taken into consideration.
Additionally, the PlayStation Vita version of the game has been cancelled due to “Sony’s plans to discontinue the Vita console.” Backers who opted to choose a Vita version now have the option to either pick a new platform or request a refund.
Igarashi recently commented on how he’d like to turn Bloodstained into a franchise, similarly to Castlevania.
