While delayed to the first half of 2018, likely to accommodate the several stretch goals that come with being one of the most-funded Kickstarter games of all time, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night looks to be coming along rather nicely. The anticipated successor to Castlevania also hosts quite the musical talent, including Shantae and Shovel Knight composer Jake Kaufman, Inti Creates' Ippo Yamada, and former Castlevania composer Michiru Yamane, who worked on the series' music from Symphony of the Night onward.

A new update from the Bloodstained Kickstarter teased four of the game's songs with demos backers can listen to, as well as a short commentary for each track, revealing that these four tracks are penned by Yamane herself. You can listen to them all after the jump!

Rare veteran Chris Sutherland and editorial director Andy Robinson, representing Playtonic Games, were recently interviewed by GamesRadar about how using Kickstarter changed the development of their new game Yooka-Laylee.

Chris Sutherland: When we started out. We thought, 'Oh, it'll be a small number of people, it's mainly for us and we just need to fund it.' Now we're very much aware of at least 80,000 people who are going to be very, very cross if we don't get this right.

In 2012, Square Enix released an MMO based on the Dragon Quest series called Dragon Quest X. Unfortunately, the MMO had never made it to the West, and fans have been very vocal about its localization. During a developer discussion at PAX West for Dragon Quest VII, one fan asked Square Enix's Noriyoshi Fujimoto about the possibility of Dragon Quest X coming to the west. According to Fujimoto, translating an MMO like Dragon Quest X is a difficult task and would not make much sense from a business standpoint. If enough fans demand Dragon Quest X to come west, however, then Square Enix could look into it.

Speaking with PlayStation LifeStyle, Respawn Art Director Joel Emslie and Chief Operating Officer Dusty Welch revealed that they always wanted the first game on PlayStation platforms, but the situation was completely out of their hands.
