Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night could come to the Wii U if the game’s crowdfunding project raises $3 million. At the time of writing, the Bloodstained‘s Kickstarter page has raised over $2.8 million, making this a very realistic goal.
The port will be handled by Armature Studio, a team of developers who used to work for Nintendo at Retro Studios. In a statement made on Kickstarter, Armature said: “When we were approached with the opportunity to assist with Bloodstained on Wii U, we were ecstatic. This style of game is one we are intimately familiar with from our Metroid Prime days, and it’s exciting to once again put our familiarity with Nintendo hardware to good use.”
Bloodstained is a 2D platformer with RPG mechanics and a focus on exploration. The project is being led by Koji Igarashi, who produced the modern 2D Castlevania games.
If fully-funded, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will launch on March, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U and PC. The Kickstarter campaign ends on June 12.
