Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night
Putting the fun into crowdfunding
Kickstarter successes don’t get much bigger than Castlevania dev Koji Igarashi’s spiritual successor to the legendary series. Raising more than $5.5 million, Ritual Of The Night has more than a smidge of expectation, and the delay into 2018 was almost guaranteed after it smashed its stretch goals. But what will we actually be playing? An orphan called Miriam fights her way through an enormous demonic castle as she battles a curse where magical crystals are gradually fusing with her body. The castle is full of fast travel locations, and Miriam can level up with all kinds of exciting weaponry. So, yeah, no pressure, Igarashi, but we’re keen.
