Koji Igarashi has talked about his upcoming Kickstarter project Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night at the recent BitSummit event in Kyoto. He revealed that development of the game is roughly 20 to 30% complete and he has acknowledged that he needs to “increase his pace” if he wants to complete the game by its intended release date of 2018. Igarashi also stated that the reason the Wii U version was cancelled was because the Wii U would not be a relevant system anymore in 2018. Since the game is using the Unreal engine and is being ported from PC, developing the Switch version is a lot easier. Finally, he’s thinking about showcasing the game at E3 since there are a lot of North American backers (although it is not clear if he meant this year’s E3 or next year’s).
