Bloodstained Kickstarter Closes in on $2 Million

Bloodstained Funded

Having just crossed 1.75 million dollars in funding in the first 24 hrs on Kickstarter, there can be no doubt that fans are still clamoring for another Castlevania from famed producer, Koji Igarashi. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night looks to satisfy all of our hearts’ desires. While not maintaining the Castlevania name, it stays true to what made us fall in love with the franchise so many years ago: massive bosses, beautiful imagery, an iconic musical score, challenging gameplay, and all of the RPG elements of its predecessors.

Bloodstained Funding Goals

Unfortunately, there is not currently a playthrough video on the Kickstarter funding page to see first-hand what IGA has in store for us, but I think his track record speaks for itself. For those who might have missed some of his masterpieces, here’s just a few of our favorites to tide you over until Bloodstained:

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Dracula X Chronicles includes this and Rondo of Blood if you want to give the portable version a go)

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

And if you haven’t checked out this amazing retrospective on the Castlevania series by GameTrailers, you should definitely give it a watch. It’s an hour and a half but well worth it.

Time to go play some Symphony of the Night! See you all on Monday.
