Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Koji Igarashi’s Bloodstained has gotten a lot of love on Kickstarter. At over $4.5 million at the time of writing, this Kickstarter has almost received 1000 times what they were originally asking for. Now, the creators of Shovel Knight have decided to try to help the Kickstarter along by allowing Shovel Knight to join the game as a third playable character. Here’s concept art by Bloodstain’s lead artist:

Bloodstained - Shovel Knight

That looks… interesting to say the least. But the prospect of having Shovel Knight in Bloodstained is pretty interesting. What do you think? Should Yacht Club Games have allowed this? How about the Bloodstained project in general? Is it shaping up to being really exciting or overeager? Let us know in the comments.
