Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the crowdfunding project being developed by Castlevania designer Koji Igarashi, has just met another stretch goal. The project just hit $3 million, meaning that the game will now be coming to the Wii U. Not only will the game be getting a Wii U release, but it will be getting a physical release as well, just like the other console ports.

The port will be handled by Armature Studios rather than Igarashi and Inti Creates. Armature Studios has worked on games such as Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and the Vita port of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. Some of the features that will be exclusive to the Wii U version include Pro Controller Support, a GamePad map that can be drawn on, off-screen play, Miiverse social integration, and being able to use your own Mii in-game.

And as expected, the game’s next stretch goals have been revealed. The goals are $3.25 million, which will unlock asynchronous online multiplayer, and $3.5 million, which will unlock a PS Vita port of the game, also by Armature.

The game is expected to release in March of 2017.
