Bloodstained Kickstarter Will Likely Add Wii U Stretch Goal


Not too long ago, famed former Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi announced the Kickstarter project to fund a new Igavania title, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. It didn’t take too long for the game to hit its initial funding minimum of $500,000, and several stretch goals such as second playable characters, Nightmare difficulty mode, David Hayter voice acting and a retro level have all been met. The next big step at $2.75 million is for Bloodstained to have Iga’s biggest castle in any of his games, but it’s the blacked-out stretch goal below that has people talking.

People in the comments have been quick to note that it looks like Bloodstained will add a $3 million stretch goal to add a Wii U version of the title. If you can “adjust your eyes to the darkness,” you can see a pixel version of what looks to be a cut-off Wii U logo. If you can’t see it, someone in the comments changed the lighting levels and posted the image right here.

Currently, the Bloodstained Kickstarter is at $2.5 million with more than 22 days to go until funding stops. However, as is the case with most projects that enjoy massive launches, interest has supremely died down since, with a relatively low $34,576 raised yesterday to cap off a 6-day decline in daily funds. Reaching that $3 million total might not be as guaranteed as one would have thought, although a recently-announced $60 pledge or more giving PC beta access might help funds keep flowing in. Personally, I’d love to see Igavania play return to a Nintendo console, even though I’m not personally pledging to this Kickstarter.

You have until June 12 to decide whether or not you want to pledge to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, currently set for availability on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
