Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Getting an Online Challenge Mode, More Artwork Released

on June 10, 2015 1:23 PM

There are less than three days remaining in the fundraising campaign for Koji Igarashi’s Bloodstained and things are getting heated.

At the time of this writing the Kickstarter campaign for the game has reached $3,977,075, which when combined with the more than $100,000 in Paypal donations clears the $4,000,000 stretch goal: an online challenge mode, in which you’ll presumably compete with other players for the highest score. The next goal unlocks a third playable character and will be met at $4,250,000.

The backer exclusive boss has been revealed and it will be some twisted form of Koji Igarashi himself, as illustrated below:

He won’t look like that—not even a little like that—but we had Kari Fry create this remarkable artist’s depiction for a reason. That backer-exclusive boss? It will be IGA.

There’s also art of Miriam brandishing the Clan Katana, a weapon chosen by fans:


This sword is promised to be one of the best weapons in the game and unlocking the weapon will be a challenging undertaking. This game gets more exciting by the day! The Kickstarter for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night ends in 57 hours.
