As Kickstarter campaigns wind down, donations typically tend to slow down a bit. With Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, however, it’s been quite the opposite.
There’s only two or so hours remaining before the Bloodstained Kickstarter campaign ends. Even so, the game has been quickly clearing stretch goals over the past couple of days, and the (true) final one has now been reached.
Bloodstained has now generated $5.5 million on Kickstarter when combined with PayPal funds. That means the game will include a special Boss Revenge mode. This will feature the following:
– Control several different bosses
– Utilize their special attacks to wreak havok
– Explore a new BOSS REVENGE area
– Turn the tables and defeat “Hero” Bosses in your pursuit of humanity’s destruction
The Kickstarter for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night can be found here.

There’s six hours remaining before Bloodstained’s Kickstarter expires. We’ll know pretty soon if the campaign manages to reach this one final stretch goal.
Bloodstained clears final Kickstarter stretch goal, getting roguelike dungeon mode
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U | 5 Comments | 0 Likes
Update: We’ve been tricked! There’s a new final stretch goal: boss revenge mode. Details here.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night’s Kickstarter has hit $5 million (combined with PayPal funds). The final stretch goal has been cleared, and the game will be receiving a roguelike dungeon mode.
As a reminder, here’s what fans can expect from the feature:
In this mode you’ll face a new castle every time, braving its treacherous (and massive) halls for loot, glory, and the simple, satisfying feeling of going where no Miriam has gone before. Once you’ve explored its passages and defeated its boss, you’ll get a code that will enable you to share your randomly generated dungeon with a friend.
Nine hours remain in the Bloodstained Kickstarter campaign. If you’d like to donate before it ends, head on over here.
Thanks to Maxime for the tip.
Bloodstained Kickstarter reaches online challenge mode stretch goal
The Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Kickstarter refuses to slow down. Once again, another stretch goal has been cleared. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has now surpassed $4 million, meaning the game will be receiving an online challenge mode.
Here’s what this feature will offer:
– Team up with a friend online in both co-op and versus modes
– Power through specially designed stages by clearing challenges, killing enemies, collecting items, and more
– Battle extra-powerful bosses which drop rare items
Just over two days remain in the Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Kickstarter. You can give the campaign a look here.
Bloodstained Kickstarter gets stretch goals for online challenge mode, third playable character, prequel mini-game
A number of new stretch goals have been announced for the Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Kickstarter.
The orchestrated tracks goal, which was previously announced, is the most attainable. Bloodstained’s Kickstarter will need to reach $3.75 million for this to happen.
Other new stretch goals for Bloodstained include an online challenge mode ($4 million), third playable character ($4.25 million), prequel mini-game for consoles ($4.5 million), and a portable port of the same prequel mini-game ($4.75 million).
Speaking of that prequel mini-game, here’s an overview of that:
PREQUEL MINI-GAME FOR CONSOLES: Inti Creates is so excited about Bloodstained that they’re hoping to create a 2D, pixel-based, retro-styled mini-game that sheds some light on the world of Bloodstained before Miriam awoke from her coma. This is a complete game which will be sold separately, but every $28+ backer copy of Bloodstained will come with a FREE download of this game on PS4, XB1, Wii U, or PC! (Backers at Physical+Digital tiers will be eligible for 2 copies of the mini-game.)
PREQUEL MINI-GAME FOR PORTABLES: At $4.75 million Inti will port their side story game to the PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS. Backers $28 and up will be able to choose any platform for their free copy (or copies)!
With only six days remaining in Bloodstained’s campaign, it’s admittedly going to be difficult to reach those latter stretch goals. It’s be very neat to see that prequel mini-game happen, however.

There are plenty of Kickstarter projects that feature Wii U in one form or another. For the latest look at which games are seeking funding, check out our roundup below.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (new) – already funded, coming to Wii U
An exploration-focused, side-scrolling platformer featuring RPG and crafting elements.
Koji Igarashi, the namesake of “Igavania”-style games, is leading the project, with Michiru Yamane composing the music and Inti Creates leading the development.
You are Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist curse which slowly crystallizes your skin. You must battle your way through a demon-filled castle summoned by Gebel, your old friend whose body has become more crystal than flesh.
LOUD on Planet X – $50,000 CAD for funding, Wii U stretch goal at $75,000 CAD
LOUD on Planet X is an arcade-style indie music game featuring Tegan and Sara, METZ, Metric, Lights, July Talk, F*cked Up, Cadence Weapon, Austra and more.
Choose from a cross-section of top current indie music artists, then defend your stage from hordes of quirky aliens by tapping to the music and using a fun assortment of makeshift weapons like speakers, strobe lights, fog machines, amplifiers, bouncers and custom special attacks!
LOUD on Planet X is an exciting new indie alternative to Rock Band or Guitar Hero with a splash of Plants vs Zombies – a new hybrid of rhythm game and classic shooter with tower defence elements.
Yooka-Laylee – already funded at $270,041, coming to Wii U
Yooka-Laylee is an all-new 3D platformer from the creative talent behind the Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country games. We’ve come together to form Playtonic Games and create a spiritual successor to our most cherished work from the past!
Our new heroes, Yooka (the green bloke with no pants) and Laylee (the wisecracking lady-bat with the big nose) were conceptualised from the ground up for stellar platforming gameplay, created by the same character artist behind the rebooted Donkey Kong family and legendary N64 heroes Banjo and Kazooie.
Using an arsenal of special moves like Yooka’s tongue grapple and Laylee’s tactical sonar blast, players will explore – and expand – gorgeous 3D worlds drawn up by esteemed environment artist Steven Hurst (Banjo-Kazooie series, Viva Pinata) and through skill discover the plethora of delicious collectibles hidden within.
