    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (Castlevania successor by Koji Igarashi) - June 18, 2019

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...l-of-the-night

    What is Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night?
    An exploration-focused, side-scrolling platformer featuring RPG and crafting elements.
    Koji Igarashi, the namesake of "Igavania"-style games, is leading the project, with Michiru Yamane composing the music and Inti Creates leading the development.
    If funded, the game will be developed for XBOX One, Playstation 4, and PC. For the first time on Kickstarter, backers will have the option to receive actual PS4 / XB1 / PC retail discs.

    You are Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist curse which slowly crystallizes your skin. You must battle your way through a demon-filled castle summoned by Gebel, your old friend whose body has become more crystal than flesh.

    Q&A: Castlevania's Koji Igarashi returns with new game, Bloodstained

    Bloodstained, unsurprisingly, marks Igarashi's return to his signature style of game, the "metroidvania" -- so named for 1997's Symphony of the Night, which adopted a style reminiscent of Nintendo's Super Metroid and so codified a genre.

    It's a clear attempt to give fans what they want: it's a side-scrolling adventure game with a gothic vibe, starring a new heroine, Miriam. Cursed by magic, she explores a demonic castle.

    It's on Kickstarter now, of course, seeking funding not to make the game (that's essentially taken care of) but top-up the dev costs, expand the budget and the game's scope, and prove to Igarashi's financial backers that there is, in fact, demand for a game like this -- something his erstwhile publisher Konami clearly decided was not the case when the franchise was handed to Brit David Cox after years of Igarashi's stewardship.

    The game is under development by Igarashi and Inti Creates, the studio best known for its contributions to the Mega Man series (including Mega Man 9 and Mega Man Zero, among others) and Mighty No. 9, the Kickstarted game by former Capcom R&D head Keiji Inafune, which is due out in September.

    I feel like a hipster, but I cannot get behind Kickstarter games. I'll just wait for the final version. It's not that I don't trust Iga, it's that there's a stigma of shit never turning out on time.

    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    I'm with you on this. As much as I don't mind the idea of crowdfunding, I don't like paying for potential. Same thing with Steam Early Access. Give me a finished game and I'll spend my money on it.

    Right now I'll do anything to fuck over Konami, and this is absolutely the perfect way to do that.

    All current Stretch Goals met. They just said on stream that they have more planned, but weren't prepared for the current set to be met as soon as it was. The next goal will be Dungeon related.

    you're fucking kidding me. I was JUST thinking last night "I wish the Metroidvania games would come back."

    honestly I'm almost in tears here. never in a million years thought this would happen. I'll throw some cash at this when I get home for sure.

    also, two things:

    can we PLEASE get Embarrassing Boots?

    and can we please please PLEASE get Pyrite Coin. I'm dying to know what's behind that door...

    There was an article of his interview floating around saying he has already approached multiple publishers asking for funds and has secured about 90% of what he needs. This KS will represent the last 10% and the proof of demand those publishers are asking for before they fully commit giving him the money.

    I say this more than proves the demand is there for these types of games.
