Bloodstained

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the crowdfunded spiritual successor to the Castlevania series, will have a staggered release so as to avoid falling into the eternally-delayed trap that plagues Mighty No. 9, a community manager has revealed on the game’s official fan forums.

“I’m strictly forbidden to talk about the release date [since that might] stir some confusion,” wrote community manager Mana in response to some fans’ worries that the Koji Igarashi–helmed game would slip into Mighty No. 9‘s unsatisfying release model. “But in terms of how it’s going to be released, the plan is to release the main game and then the additional contents.”

Some of that additional content is detailed in the stretch goals of the game’s Kickstarter campaign. Fans raised enough to unlock a roguelike dungeon mode, boss revenge mode, and “free 2D pixel-based retro-styled prequel mini-game,” as well as more cosmetic content like additional voice actors. From the sound of it, some or all of these features will be arriving only once the main game is finished and released for all to play.

Though there’s no set release date yet, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is tentatively scheduled to arrive in March 2017. It’ll release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, and PC.
