Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the spritual successor to the Castlevania series could make it’s way to Vita, if it manages to reach a $3,500,000 stretch goal on Kickstarter.
Created by Koji Igarashi, who was the original creator of the Castlevania series, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night launched on Kickstarter in early May 2015, and has since been a massive success and has currently been funded for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Wii U.
Should the stretch goal be met, the port will be handled by Armature Studios, who are no strangers to the Vita having previously brought Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection to the handheld, they had the following to say regarding the potential Vita version:
We at Armature thank you so much for funding the Wii U version of Bloodstained. Now we have one more surprise for you… if Bloodstained makes it to $3.5mm, we will also be providing a Playstation Vita version of the game.
That’s right, the ultimate -vania game is going to make it back to a handheld platform. And don’t worry, this won’t mean a diminished experience on the Wii U – in fact, with both platforms having touch screens, it’ll probably mean more for both. We’ll also be working with the development team on the PS4 version to see what we can do to make both platforms complement each other.
We are especially grateful to be able to help out on this, as most of Armature’s games have been released on the PS Vita—that would be Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Injustice, and The Unfinished Swan, in case you’re counting. Our team knows the PS Vita platform inside and out, and we’ll do it justice as we bring you Bloodstained, running on UE4, to the PS Vita. Help us bring Bloodstained where -vania games belong – your hands!
At the time of writing the project still has 12 days left to go, so that means we’ve just 12 days to help bring this exciting looking game to our beloved handheld, what are you waiting for? Click HERE to help fund it and let us know in the comments if you do decide to pledge!
