Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night – Coming to Vita


For the few people that don’t know what Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is allow me to explain. It’s a Kickstarter project by Koji Igarashi and it’s an exploration-focused, side-scrolling Castlevania-esque platformer featuring RPG and crafting elements. The excellent news is that it reached a massive goal and will also be made for the PlayStation Vita. Check out all the details below.

Koji Igarashi, the namesake of “Igavania”-style games, is leading the project, with Michiru Yamane composing the music and Inti Creates leading the development.
If funded, the game will be developed for PC/Mac/Linux, XBOX One, Playstation 4, Wii U, and PS Vita. For the first time on Kickstarter, backers will have the option to receive actual PC / XB1 / PS4 / Wii U / Vita retail copies.

Armature had this to say about the PS Vita version..

Once again, the Bloodstained backers have not failed us. We have hit the PS Vita stretch goal! Here are our thoughts on inclusions into the PS Vita version:

Music Export – We thought it would be awesome to be able to export the game’s music to the Vita’s music library. So we’re going to do that.
PS4 Cross Save Support – Obviously, we’ll need to work with the PS4 dev team on this, but we’ve done cross save before and we’d love to do it again.
Touch Screen Support – Remember how we mentioned drawing on the map on the WiiU version? Why not do that for Vita too? And scrub around the map with your finger as well.
PlayStation TV – We’ll also make sure that the game is fully playable on the PS TV.

We are truly honored to be part of this project, and to work with the other development teams to help bring another one of Igarashi-san’s masterpieces to a handheld.
