With six days remaining in its Kickstarter campaign for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Koji Igarashi’s tribute to the classic Castlevania titles, has reached its stretch goal to come to the PlayStation Vita.
With the combined funding from Kickstarter along with backers from Paypal, Bloodstained was able to easily surpass the $3.5 million goal it had set for itself.
The PS Vita version of the game will be handled by Armature Studios, whose past work for the Vita include solid titles such as Injustice: Gods Among Us, The Unfinished Swan, and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. They’re promising to work closely with the team making the PS4 version so that there will be full cross-save support built in to the game. They’ve also pledged that they will make the game fully compatible with the PlayStation TV.
Some other features added for the Vita will include full touch support for the map which will allow players to draw and scrub the map. Additionally, Armature wants to include a feature where the game’s soundtrack can be exported to the Vita’s music library. This will be especially nice if Bloodstained can reach its next funding goal which will bring in fully orchestrated music tracks.
Perhaps best of all is the news that the game will be released as both a physical retail game as well as a digital download.
It’s still not too late to become a backer and reserve your copy of the game today. The campaign will wrap up on June 12, so don’t delay if you want to support this latest addition to the Vita’s game library.
