Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, a spiritual successor to Castlevania, was one of the highest-funded Kickstarter games of all time. Fans are eagerly anticipating the launch of developer Koji Igarashi's passion project, but unfortunately that wait has just been extended. In a Kickstarter update to fans, Igarashi announced that Bloodstained has been delayed to "absolutely guarantee the game is done right the first time." Igarashi is recruiting more developers to the team to ease this process, and they're now targeting a release in the first half of 2018.
