Bloodstained to get staggered content post-release to avoid delays

Dev announces staggered content to avoid delaying release date.


Bloodstained to get staggered content post-release to avoid delays

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is the hugely successful Kickstarter from Koji Igarashi and the game is set to be huge.

With that being the case, the developer took to the forums to reassure fans that they would be avoiding the problems Mighty No. 9 has encountered with delayed release dates by going down the path of Yacht Club Games' Shovel Knight, with additional content to drop after the game's release.

"Following a recent conversation in the shoutbox with our community manager Mana...it can be confirmed that Bloodstained will follow a staggered content release," they announced in a dev post.

"Some portion of the game will release first and then additional content (as outlined by the Kickstarter) will follow in the months to come.

"How much of the game will be there at launch day (Just the main game? More?) is unclear and probably hasn't been decided yet but at the very least we should be able to avoid an extremely protracted release as with Mighty No. 9. We are still a longs way off from the game being done so of course anything could change."

Sounds like a solid plan to me.

BloodStained: Ritual of the Night is scheduled for a 2017 release on PC, PlayStation 4, Vita, Wii U and Xbox One.
