At time of publication, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has garnered more than 15,000 backers – meaning the campaign is averaging well over $60 per backer.

The game will be a 2.5D action-platformer focused on exploration and built on Unreal Engine 4 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Inti Creates – the studio working on Keiji Inafune's Mighty No. 9 and Wayforward Technologies' Shantae: Half-Genie Hero – will handle development.
