Koji Igarashi, producer of several Castlevania games including Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, has announced and launched a Kickstarter campaign for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, a new 2.5D action game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The exploration-focused, side-scrolling platformer will feature RPG and crafting elements. Koji Igarashi is leading the game himself, with Michiru Yamane composing the music and Inti Creates leading development.
The Kickstarter is seeking $500,000 in funding. In addition to digital copies, backers will also have the option to receive “Special Backer Edition” physical copies including a swordwhip, hidden boss, and Kickstarter-edition slipcase across all platforms.
The following stretch goals are also posted:
- $600,000 – Artbook upgraded to hardcover
- $700,000 – Second playable character unlocked
- $800,000 – Nightmare difficulty mode
- $850,000 – Voice acting by David Hayter
