Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Switch port still in early stages

A portion of an AppTrigger interview with Koji Igarashi...

AT: Can Nintendo Switch owners expect a similar level of background detail as the platform shown off in the trailers?

KI: Currently, we’re not in the middle of porting to Nintendo Switch just yet, but we are starting porting to PS Vita. In comparison to that porting process, we feel confident that the environments will look pretty similar, but we can’t say for sure until we really look into the Nintendo Switch specs and see what it’s like building a game for it.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - more screens

More here

I so desperately need my Castlevania fix. This game will certainly do the trick, but it's still far off from release. I'm looking at you, The Mummy Demastered, to quench my thirst!

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - More gameplay footage, storyline details

- set in 18th century England during the industrial revolution
- an Alchemist Guild feared that their art would be lost, and it performed a ritual to summon demons
- the ritual involved sacrificing orphans

- the heroine, Miriam, is an orphan and a survivor of the ritual
- she awoke from a 10-year coma and has gone after the demons
- she has been scarred by an alchemist’s demonic curse, which is slowly turning her skin to crystal
- she must travel to the castle to hunt and kill its summoner, Gebel

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - Igarashi talks playable characters, development progress

A portion of a USGamer interview with Koji Igarashi...

USG: When you say there aren't enough characters to tell the story, do you mean we'll be playing through the plot with different perspectives, like Rashomon or something?

IGA: No, right now, Miriam is the only character you play as. When you beat the game, you'll unlock two additional playable characters. Which ones, we haven't said yet. But once you unlock those characters, you can replay as those characters.

USG: Can you talk in a general sense about how progress is coming along on the overall game?

IGA: Last summer, we announced we were changing up our development process a bit, and we've been moving forward with that plan. If you were to press, I'd say we're about 20-30% done.

Bloodstained Kickstarter update - Ask IGA, Three New Characters

We will be introducing new characters for this month's update - a woman who supports Miriam, a man related to the incident from 10 years ago, and a young villager. Maybe I can finally write up our story? That's about as much as we've gathered so far.
