The Backer Beta Demo for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has experienced a small delay, postponing its release from June 21 to June 28, 2018.
In an email sent to Kickstarter backers, Bloodstained creator Koji Igarashi apologized for the delay and explained that they discovered a couple of bugs they would like to fix after showcasing the game at E3 2018. This way, backers can have a better beta experience.
Here’s Igarashi’s full message:
In regards to the Backer Beta Demo for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, our launch date has changed from June 21st to June 28th. We sincerely apologize for this delay.
We showcased the demo at E3, but after watching many people play the demo, we found a couple of bugs that we want to fix and several adjustments we wanted to make in order to deliver a better beta experience.
We were very busy supporting the demo for E3, and we have been working all the way up to today’s release date to try to avoid pushing it back, but we were not quite able to complete the work that needs to be done to make the beta experience a great one for backers. As a result, we are forced to delay from the promised date, and we are very sorry. Please continue to look forward to the beta a little longer, and thank you for your patience. – IGA
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is set to launch on Nintendo Switch in the future.
