Castlevania successor's Kickstarter makes more than $1 million in 24 hours

Some Castlevania fans have been disappointed with the direction that the series has gone in recent years. That’s probably why Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the spiritual successor from Koji Igarashi, made more than $1 million in just 24 hours of its Kickstarter campaign going live.

Bloodstained was looking for $500,000, so it’s on course to make a lot more money than anticipated. The extra money has already unlocked most of the set stretch goals. That includes voice acting from David Hayter, a Nightmare difficulty, and a second playable character.

The title has almost hit the final stretch goal, which is local co-op. Perhaps Igarashi has some more ideas up his sleeve.

The 2.5D action game certainly seems to draw inspiration from the Castlevania games that Igarashi made. The backstory tells the story of the Alchemist Guild who use stories of demons to deter mankind from putting their faith in science. Of course, mankind ignores them, so the Guild start luring demons to Earth.

The plan seems to backfire as the Guild disappears and a castle filled with demons appears. It looks as though someone will have to explore this castle looking for answers.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is expected to be released in March 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
