Symphony of the Night Director Reveals Kickstarter for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

A brand new Kickstarter is racing towards $500k goal with Castlevania director Koji Igarashi at the helm.

When Koji Igarashi left Konami in March of 2014, everyone awaited with bated breath to see what his next project would be. The wait is over as the former Castlevania producer has revealed his Kickstarter for his new project, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. At the time of writing, the project has already raised $221,000 towards its $500,000 goal. The game is in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC platforms.

The game will feature legendary Castlevania composer Michiru Yamane, and is being developed by Inti Creates, which is coincidentally the same developer Keiji Inafune is using for development of Might No. 9. David Hayter will also be lending his vocals to the project. The game seems to be a spritual successor to the popular series and will include the RPG elements of newer entries along with a crafting system, which seems to take inspiration from the excellent Aria of Sorrow and Dawn of Sorrow's soul systems. 

Given the recent debacles and stumbles at Konami and the lack of a proper Castlevania game for some time, it's no surprise this project is already well on its way to being funded. I think I need to start throwing my money at the screen.

Are you as excited about this Kickstarter as I am? Sound off in the comments below!
