Igarashi’s Bloodstained will come to Wii U if it reaches $3 million stretch goal


Koji Igarashi’s Kickstarter campaign for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has had a pretty successful run so far. After two weeks, the side-scroller has reached $2.77 million in backer pledges and plowed through more than a dozen stretch goals. Since we last checked in with the campaign, backers have unlocked a Boss Rush Mode, a retro-themed level, a linearly re-arranged version of the game known as Classic Mode, six 8-bit music tracks for Classic Mode, and a promise that Bloodstained will have the “biggest castle” Igarashi has ever produced.

But the next stretch goal should be very important to Wii U owners as Igarashi has confirmed that Bloodstained will be released for Nintendo’s console if the campaign reaches $3 million. The Wii U version of the game will be produced by Armature Studio, a development team that specializes in porting games to new platforms. You might be familiar with their work if you’ve played the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection or Injustice: Gods Among Us on the Vita. Armature also assisted with Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for the PS4 and Xbox One.

The Kickstarter campaign for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will end on June 12 at 11:00 PM (Eastern Time), so the world has a little less than 16 days to make the Wii U version happen. If I were a betting man, I’d say it’s as close to a sure thing as you can get.
