Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

[bctt tweet=”Video game community told Koji Igarashi to Shut up and take my money!”]Not even  Castlevania mastermind Koji Igarashi realized he would raise 5.5 million dollars on his Kickstarter campaign to bring Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night to life.  The initial expectation was that they would only raise $800,000 if they were lucky.  Instead, they broke the previous Kickstarter record (for a video game) by $820,000.

The game will be presented in 2.5D, allowing the game 3D graphics but restricting movement to 2D style. Personally, this return to previous Castlevania game play style is welcome. It looks like the gaming community agrees and was loosely quoted as saying “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY”

Watch the Kickstarter pitch:
