Bloodstained’s latest Kickstarter update was posted today. Although it didn’t arrive with a release date as originally expected, we do have quite a bit of news.

The full cast is as follows:

At SXSW last week, an hour-long panel was hosted for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. In case you missed it, we now have the full recording below.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was funded on Kickstarter way back in 2015. It’s been a long journey for creator Koji Igarashi and the rest of the team, but the game’s launch appears to be in sight.

Bloodstained’s official Twitter confirms that news regarding the release date should be shared in the March Kickstarter update. We have less than two weeks remaining in the month, so news is expected soon.


A new Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night video was released this week that offers fans a peek inside the orchestrated recording sessions. Michiru Yamane and other composers have also spoken about the music creation process. Watch the video below.

The latest Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Kickstarter update has arrived, and fans are being treated to a new look at the game’s crafting system. A video clip released today can be viewed below.

Bloodstained’s crafting system lets you combine items to make yourself new items and equipment. The team is also teasing other things that can be created, but we’ll be hearing about that later. Crafting can be done by visiting Johannes, an alchemist friendly to Miriam.

A new update was posted to the Bloodstained Kickstarter page today. It features a new video, music, and more.

Today’s video gives us a look at two things in particular. The Bloodstained team shows off the courtyard as well as a battle with Zangetsu, a samurai character who “resents anyone and anything tainted by demonic power.”

You can also listen to some music on Kickstarter here. Noisycroak is working with Michiru Yamane to complete the soundtrack.
