Back when Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was announced, it was mentioned that the team plans on making the game with Unreal Engine 4. Interestingly, that isn’t changing with the Wii U version.

Armature Studio, who is handling the Wii U version of Bloodstained, confirmed that it will be making the title for Nintendo’s console with Unreal Engine 4. The studio said:


Now that Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has hit its Wii U stretch goal on Kickstarter, the team has opened up its campaign a bit more to Nintendo fans.

First, it’s possible to obtain a physical disc for Bloodstained’s Wii U version. Details can be found here.

Armature Studio, who will be handling the Wii U port, also shared information about the sort of features it hopes to implement. These include Pro Controller support, the ability to have the map on the GamePad while playing on the TV, drawing on/annotating the map, off-TV play, Miiverse integration, and an element in which you can have your Mii featured in the game.

Armature is also seeking feedback from fans. You can share input on the official Kickstarter page here.


After combining donations received through PayPal, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has managed to reach its Wii U stretch goal on Kickstarter.

The campaign needed to total $3 million in order to ensure a version for Nintendo’s console. That happened with nearly two weeks before the Kickstarter ends.

Now that Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been officially confirmed for Wii U, we can look forward to the game in March 2017. Armature Studio, the team behind Batman: Arkham Origins – Blackgate and a number of ports, will be handling this version for Koji Igarashi and main developer Inti Creates.

You may recall that a story surfaced in mid-2013 about a cancelled Mega Man X first-person shooter tentatively titled “Maverick Hunter”. This project was being worked on by Armature Studio – a team comprised of staffers who previously worked on Metroid Prime. There were plans for a trilogy, but the game was cancelled in 2010 after just a few months of development.

Maverick Hunter is back in the news today, as new images have been discovered on artist Jaehoon Kim’s website. Take a look at them in the gallery below.


Armature Studio and Warner Bros. Interactive have prepared a new update for Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate: Deluxe Edition. The thing is, we’re not sure what it changes/adds at the moment. We’ll let you know if we receive any additional information.
