Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night heading to Switch

Posted on March 5, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is coming to Switch. In an official news notice sent out to system users via Nintendo of Europe, the game’s logo is featured alongside several other titles.

You can see Bloodstained’s logo in the second to last column below, towards the middle. The graphic is similar to what was sent out a few days ago following the Nindies Showcase, but Bloodstained’s inclusion is new here.

Bloodstained was originally targeted for Wii U. But since the title won’t be arriving until the first half of 2018, the team probably felt that moving it over to Switch would make the most sense.

    Excellent! I have been looking forward to this game. I was going to go with PC and Vita, but I will just go for the Switch version now.

  • TDude73

    Best decision ever!

    • flappospammo

      your logging out permanently would be that

    That is great! However, in my case, I’ll play it on PS4 just for the same reason I’ll be playing Yooka-Laylee on Switch: some games feel better on certain platforms.

    • SM

      Castlevania made its mark with Nintendo

      • KoolADBestRapper

        And made an even bigger mark with Sony when SotN released.

        • Adibobea9

          And neither of these games made their mark on Sony or Nintendo systems exclusively…

        • and brought that same formula to gba and ds with amazing games

          • KoolADBestRapper

            It was pretty close. I’d say Aria of Sorrow got the closest to the SotN formula. The rest of the GBA/DS games were good, but kinda missed the mark.

          • WRONG

      • Adrian Brown

        I know, but this game looks more like SoTN than the classic Castlevanias to me. Anyway, the good thing is that the game is coming to Switch.

    • hi v3.0

      You just contradicted yourself

      • Adrian Brown

        why? I tried to say that Yooka Laylee feels better on Nintendo, and a SoTN-like game like this feels better on PlayStation

  • ibo

    yes :v

  • Dozuken

    It only made sense
    Also since games like these are not heavily focused on graphics
    people may wanna consider portability of the switch version

  • Thank God

  • KnightWonder

    I was going to get this on the PS4, but it just feels more right to buy it on a Nintendo console.

  • Hex

    And now I’m happy… getting this on Switch hands down. Give me monster hunter and pokemon +pokken and I will be satisfied

  • hi v3.0

    Everyone knew that this is gonna happen last year

  • Pachirisu

    OMG no way! I would have never imagined this game on the switch, I am in complete shock!

    Joking aside… yay!

  • K. Azune

    ATTENTION!
    Don’t believe this just yet. Bloodstained is still
    targeted for 2018 release, not 2017. Wait for official announcement from
    Kickstarter page.

    Hue, moar liek Boobstained

    …glad there’s more games though C:

  • SpectralDynamite

    Definitely picking this up. My friend will be thrilled to hear this.

  • That 450-500$ dev kit is magic 😉

  • UGH

    Glad I didn’t back this. I really wanted to.

    • TalesOfBS

      Great for you. I felt i was scammed.

  • TalesOfBS

    Are they going to ask Switch owners now for even more money before finishing the game for OTHER platforms first and then dish it?
