Koji Igarashi, the creator of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, recently spoke to Source Gaming about the game.
In the interview, we’ve learned Igarashi is aiming to have most players complete Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night in 10 hours. He’s also expecting to include at least 1600 screens (screens are parts of a stage) in Bloodstained.
When asked how the reception was to Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, a project developed by Inti Creates, Igarashi said fan reaction has been “really positive” and praised Inti Creates for being so good at “making those kind of games”. While fans enjoyed switching characters in Curse of the Moon, this feature won’t be implemented in Ritual of the Night, as Igarashi wants to go back to his roots.
Also in the same interview, Igarashi shared his thoughts on Simon and Richter Belmont’s inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is scheduled to launch for Nintendo Switch next year.
