Since 2015, Castlevania fans have been looking forward to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night – developed by Castlevania creator Koji Igarashi.
However, the game’s development has been slower than expected. Despite a massively-successful Kickstarter campaign aiming for release in 2017, the game got delayed to 2019.
Now, it seems like even Igarashi is impatient to complete Bloodstained for his fans. In an interview with USGamer, he made the following statement about the game’s development:
“2019 is the year. It’s definitely what we’re focusing on. It’s very difficult for us to keep working for such a long production period, especially when using outsourced companies. Right now, we want to get [Bloodstained] out as soon as possible. Quality is still very important, but yes, 2019 is the year we need to release the game.”
At least the Castlevania creator is trying his best right now. Hopefully we will get an exact release date for the game soon.
