In a move that really shouldn’t come as much of a shock to anyone Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Wii U edition is no more. In a statement from creator Koji Igarashi the Switch was wholly blamed for the game’s cancellation and while Mr. Igarashi was apologetic for this, foreseeable turn of events, he was also optimistic that the Switch version of Bloodstained would be worth the trouble.
Wii U backers will now have the choice of receiving either the Switch edition of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night or the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One or PC edition of the game before it’s 2018 release.

Bloodstained Ritual of the Night Delayed.


Castlevania’s spiritual successor Bloodstained Ritual of the Night has been delayed until early 2018.
Like more than a few Kickstarters before it, time needed to ensure the game meets a high standard was sighted as the reason behind the Bloodstained’s delay and while that may cause a tidal wave of disappointed among gamers eagerly awaiting the game’s release, a finished game is always better than a buggy one.


Blood Stains The Wii U?


While Koji Igarashi’s reveal of his much anticipated Castlevania successor, Bloodstained Ritual of the Night a few weeks went down a storm among most gamers, Wii U owners found themselves more than a little miffed at the news the game wouldn’t actually be coming to their console of choice at all. Things can change quickly in the world of gaming mind you and this week that change came in the form of a $3 million stretch goal added to Bloodstained Ritual of the Night’s Kickstart campaign which, if achieved in the next 14 days, will see the game released on the Wii U as well as the PC, PS4 and XOne.
Should a Wii U version of Bloodstained happen it won’t however, unlike the other visions be developed by Inti Creates but instead by the Texas based studio Armature who’s works include the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate and the PS Vita port of Inustice: Gods Among Us.
