Mighty No. 9 - more hope and worry for physical rewards being sent out

Recently, we talked about a Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter update that focused on physical rewards. Those still have not sent out, but are they on the way soon? There's info that points in both directions.

According to Fangamer, Comcept hasn't given them the materials to actually produce shipments yet. That would seem to indicate a big problem for physical goods actually shipping. Here's the thing, though. Backers have been getting emails stating that their items are shipping "soon," and to fill out another survey by July 17th. Could Level-5 swooping in and taking over Comcept mean that fans will finally get their goods?

Igarashi on speeding up Bloodstained's development, excitement for Metroid: Samus Returns

Coming from a GameSpot interview with Koji Igarashi and Shutaro Iida...

GS: How is development progressing? You recently had to delay the game to 2018. Have there been any unexpected hurdles in development or is it just taking a longer than you anticipated?

KI: Development is generally going smoothly, but there have been a lot of troubles. We encountered a lot of problems during development. Right now, we're trying to speed up the development more because we had to make the system first and then go from there and just created more and more content. It's quicker now in general.

GS: A lot of the later Castlevania games share many similarities with Metroid. What are your thoughts on the new Metroid game that was announced for 3DS?

KI: The two of us are extremely excited! [Laughs] We're looking forward to it!

Igarashi on the pressure of working on Castlevania, challenge of Kickstarter for Bloodstained

Coming from a Kotaku feature with Koji Igarashi...

On leaving Konami and adjusting to the pressure of Kickstarter:

With Castlevania, I’d been working on a long-running franchise where fans knew more about the games than I did. With Bloodstained, the pressure that we feel isn’t much different. There’s still hardcore fans who know more that we do. That’s a good kind of pressure, not bad, and something that we always feel and have gotten used to.

One thing that was challenging was creating material to show to backers for a new title. What we’re used to, especially in the Japanese industry, is sharing promotional material around three months before the release date to create hype. There isn’t always much hype after that. It can feel like you’ll run out of material to show people, and that’s been a challenge with Bloodstained.
