Bloodstained adds Amano artwork as stretch goal

Bloodstained Kickstarter announces posters from famed Final Fantasy artist will be included with Collector's Edition.

The Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Collector's Box will now include a poster created by legendary Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano. Koji Igarashi's Kickstarter announced the inclusion of Amano's artwork less than 24 hours after the campaign had reached the $3.5 million stretch goal set to include a PlayStation Vita port.

Kickstarter backers who donate $250 or more will receive the Collector's Box when Bloodstained launches in 2017. Amano has also agreed to sign prints for ten individuals who give $800 or more.

In addition to the Vita port, the campaign announced that backers have achieved the Orchestrated Tracks stretch goal, which will offer Igarashi's team the opportunity to "use live instrumentation where it makes sense." Bloodstained promises gamers a diverse soundtrack, which will include orchestral, rock, and 8-bit tracks.

The Bloodstained Kickstarter has three days left on the clock. At the time of this writing, Igarashi and crew have made their original $500,000 goal more than seven times over. The remaining stretch goals include an online challenge mode, a third playable character, and a prequel mini-game.
