Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, a Metroidvania-style game, which is in the middle of its Kickstarter campaign, announced today that the game will be dropping its Wii U goal and coming instead to the Switch.
Koji Igarashi, also known as IGA, released this statement:
Thank you for always supporting us. I would like to give a message to the backers who pledged for the Wii U version of Bloodstained.
During our Kickstarter campaign, the Wii U was at the height of its popularity, but the situation has drastically changed after the release of Nintendo Switch.
This change made it difficult to receive the necessary support from the hardware maker, which has led us to drop the Wii U development and shift the development to Nintendo Switch.
We are very sorry that it has come to this after all your support, but we hope you will understand. We would like to respond by preparing options for our backers, such as moving your pledge to another version or requesting a refund if you don’t want any other version.
If you are a backer on the game and you were looking for a Wii U copy of the game, please visit the Kickstarter page for the options now available to you. If you were not previously a backer but would now like to be, you should do the same.
