Ex-Castlevania dev heads to Reddit to discuss new title BloodStained: Ritual of the Night

Former Castlevania dev Koji Igarashi took to Reddit to hold an AMA on new title BloodStained: Ritual of the Night.

In the AMA, he discusses the length of the game, his time with Konami, and much more.

“Previously we used to shoot for a bare minimum of 10 hours,” Igarashi said. “We just passed a stretch goal guaranteeing a 25% bigger game so it will be at least 12.5 hours. Again, that’s for someone who is really, really good and doesn’t include the extra modes that clearing stretch goals have provided.

“Our initial 500,000 goal was going to be a much more compact version due to budgetary limitations but thanks to the additional backer support, I’m finally able to make something bigger than even SOTN. And there will be lots of new modes. I’m really interested to see how far the campaign goes because that could unlock some other really cool ideas. Of course it’s always a balance.”

BloodStained: Ritual of the Night has been confirmed for PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U.
