Bloodstained: Ritual of the NightBloodstained: Ritual of the Night could be coming to the Wii U. Koji Igarashi has revealed the project’s latest stretch goal on the game’s Kickstarter page. At $3 million, Bloodstained will be ported to the Wii U. Currently the Kickstarter campaign is at $2,753,092 with 16 days to go.

The Wii U port will not be handled by Igarashi and Inti Creates, the development studio that Igarashi is partnering with. Instead it will be handled by Armature Studios. Their CV includes other ports such as Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and the Vita version of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection among others. Perhaps their most notable title was before Armature Studios was even formed. The studio was founded by former Retro Studios developers, a studio most notably known for Metroid Prime.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night only asked for $500,000 in their campaign. Not only have they surpassed that goal, they did so within four hours of the campaign’s start. This campaign’s popularity practically guarantees a Wii U port. There is another stretch goal after $3 million mark at $3.25 million. That stretch goal will only be revealed after it passes the current one.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is currently slated for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?

    I would love to download this on my Wii U

    ‘tould be excellent. I’d get this cat-quick, ESPECIALLY if there’d be a physical copy available for the Wii U.

    No “could” about it. This is coming to Wii U, I know myself and many others clamor for Metroidvanias on Nintendo consoles. Just makes sense, since 99% of the existing ones are on Nintendo portables.
