Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night to get a demo
E3 attendees best be on the lookout for Bloodstained, as it will have a playable demo on the show floor. Luckily, for those unable to attend E3, you don't need to be at the show to play it. In fact, anyone who pledged $60 or higher will be able to get a free demo on PC by June 13 -- provided the survey has been completed as well.
Luckily, you can still make pledges to Bloodstained over on Fangamer. Keep in mind, however, only $60 pledges will gain access to the upcoming demo as well as other exclusive rewards -- a swordwhip, an extra super boss, and a slipcase for your game (physical edition only). Naturally, higher tiers have much more to offer, such as an extra copy of the game, art books, and more.
During a time when Konami was earning ire from gamers regarding Hideo Kojima, the cancellation of P.T., and other such events that earned them the hashtag #FucKonami, Koji Igarashi used Kickstarter to fund a new game similar to his well-known 2D Castlevania games. With a set goal of $500k, backers quickly raised $5.5 million in a single month. The development team has also been providing video updates on how the game is progressing, as seen in the video below:
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is set to release on March 2017 on PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Vita, and Wii U. The game is being developed by Inti Creates, and published by Deep Silver.
