Inti Creates was originally involved with the primary development of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. That’s not the case any longer, however.

The Bloodstained confirmed on the game’s forums that Inti Creates left the main project last E3, though they’re still on board for the “prequel mini-game.” DICO has since taken over Inti Create’s role. ArtPlay is also still the main developer.

Here’s the update on Inti Creates and the overall development team:

Splatoon 2 just missed out on the top spot on this week’s UK charts. It came in second, following Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy. On the whole, Splatoon 2 is off to a good start.

You might be interested to hear that Splatoon 2’s first week sales outsold the original. The sequel shifted 59 percent more copies. Splatoon 2 is also Switch’s third biggest launch in the UK after Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

New Switch stock entered the market last week. The move increased sales of Mario Kart by 60 percent and Zelda: Breath of the Wild by 20 percent.


Zelda: Breath of the Wild was developed as an entirely single-player experience. Some fans are trying to turn that concept on its head, however.

Pictures have been shown of an upcoming mod planned for Breath of the Wild. When it’s ready, two people will be able to play the game together. Inputs will be sent through each game. As for how it all works, the mod changes the location of an NPC and swaps the model for Link.

Just don’t expect to see the mod anytime soon. It’s expected that work will take around a year for it to be playable, and in order to experience it, you’ll need to play on Wii U with the CEMU emulator.
