Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is the newest game from Castlevania creator Koji Igarashi. The game was originally scheduled to come to Wii U, but in an announcement made on Kickstarter the developer has announced that version of the game will no longer be coming. They have said that the environment became such that they’ve decided to shift all development to the Switch version. Refunds will be available to backers if requested or you’ll be able to move your pledge to another platform.
Hello, this is IGA.
Thank you for always supporting us. I would like to give a message to the backers who pledged for the Wii U version of Bloodstained.
During our Kickstarter campaign, the Wii U was at the height of its popularity, but the situation has drastically changed after the release of Nintendo Switch.
This change made it difficult to receive the necessary support from the hardware maker, which has led us to drop the Wii U development and shift the development to Nintendo Switch.
We are very sorry that it has come to this after all your support, but we hope you will understand. We would like to respond by preparing options for our backers, such as moving your pledge to another version or requesting a refund if you don’t want any other version.
We hope you will continue to support us.
