Following a successful Kickstarter in 2015 which has raised $5.5m to date from 65k backers, Bloodstained is already being touted as the spiritual successor to the much-loved and highly-acclaimed Castlevania series of which Igarashi is the former series producer (2001-2010). An early demo has already been wowing backers and fans alike and earning early accolades. It was voted runner up in Best Indie Game of E3 2016 by GamesRadar.  

Like Castlevania before it, Bloodstained follows the “Metroidvania” style of gameplay for which Igarashi has become reknowned and will also replicate its familiar 2.5D style. 

The game is now in full production for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Sony’s PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo’s WiiU system and Microsoft’s Xbox One and OSX. The deal with 505 Games covers all formats except mobile and tablets. 

In anticipation of the announcement, Igarashi and 505 Games has released new video content discussing the partnership:
