Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was funded in under four hours and is in development for PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game has been described as a "Igavania"-style title, which genre aficionados have more commonly call a Metroidvania, a portmanteau of Nintendo's Metroid and Castlevania.
The crowdfunding campaign was launched with a $500,000 goal, with Igarashi explaining that he had already raised some funds for development. The Kickstarter campaign was to increase the overall budget, secure funding for bonus features, and release physical Xbox One and PS4 discs as backer rewards.
Igarashi will be serving as the game's director and producer, with Michiru Yamane-- another Castlevania veteran-- composing the music. Development will be handled by Inti Creates, the studio behind Mega Man 9 and Keiji Inafune's upcoming Mighty No. 9.
