Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - The New Igavania
« on: May 11, 2015, 11:04:39 PM »

It's time to sit in our fancy thrones and smash glasses of blood wine as famed Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi unveils his new Kickstarter project, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, a successor the action-adventure Castlevania games (Aria of Sorrow, Symphony of the Night, Portrait of Ruin, et cetera). Igarashi has teamed up with Michiru Yamame to compose the music and Inti Creates in the game development department.

According to one of my twitter buddies, the project reached its main funding goal as little as two hours with 7,320+ backers (and counting), though I'm not too sure if that's entirely true or not. Nevertheless, the man behind some our favorite Metroidvania titles is gonna bring to some new-school into the old-school. Looking forward to play as the "new" Shanoa.

It was over 400k when I backed an hour or two ago, so it being funded already does not sound surprising at all.

When the Sword of Whip teaser went up I was like, "I can't pick between them! Can't I have both?" And thankfully it looks like you can use both.

And just now, we broke the $800k mark, so now we can enjoy getting slaughtered on Nightmare Mode. owob

Oh god I love that video and the What is a Backer line. XD

Anyway as you probably saw when you looked at the Youtube Partner Clan Names Proton Jon is supporting this game and he's doing it by LPing Aria of Sorrow.

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow Part 1 - In Support of #IGAvania

If the video doesn't show up because of that stupid update bug someone please fix it.

You could probaly use the [url] tag with the video's title in the meantime like I did with the opening post. Anywho, Solid Snake is going to be in the game. 8D

Code: [Select]
[url=(insert video link here)]insert title here(Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V)[/url]
Or you could do it this way without the title:

Code: [Select]
[url]<insert video link here>[/url]
Might be a good idea to copy-paste "►" to indicate the link is a video link as Phi did when this happened to me.

Well the thing is about 100,000 away from a million so I say those goals are likely to be met.

Iga got to see a SotN speedrun firsthand tonight. His reactions to the stuff that's done to his game are pure gold.

I wonder what's Derek Alexander (the then-Happy Video Game Nerd) reaction to all this since he mentioned in his review of ► the Castlevania Game Boy games that the franchise could use a spiritual successor (like Mighty No. 9 to Mega Man and Yooka-Laylee to Banjo-Kazooie), and now that's actually happening.

Let's Play Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance - #IGAVANIA

We now have Josh Jepson playing this game blind since he never played the GBA games.  Though it looks like it'll be a one off unlike Proton Jon's.

Speed Run mode stretch goal added the day after Iga does his very first Richter skip? That's not a coincidence at all.

They still have the retro level goal and they added a Classic Mode Goal when 2,500,000 is reached.

I'll be honest, I don't really care about those ones.

For one I think trying to stuff 2 games into one is going to back fire, and possibly bog down the main game's development.

As for the '8-bit' level? It's only going to be an Easter egg at most, since it'll be at odds with the rest of the game and it's aesthetics. I can take or leave it.

So we're about $90,000 away from achieving retro mode and Proton Jon has posted his second Aria of Sorrows Video.  Now with an army of magic kitties.
