You spend forever waiting for a new Castlevania (that isn’t a weird God Of War clone), and two come along at once, albeit under a different name thanks to Konami doing their thing. We’re still waiting on Koji ‘IGA’ Igarashi’s full resurrection with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, but its pseudo-8-bit Kickstarter stretch-goal companion game Curse of the Moon just rolled out on Steam, and by all accounts it’s a lovely piece of old-school whip-crackin’, vampire-bothering fun.

Crowdfundvania: Castlevania Chap Igarashi’s Bloodstained

A new RPG from former Planescape: Torment folks, a new adventure game from Tim Schafer, a new Mega Man from the Mega Man man: some game pitches sound such sure-fire hits and strike such nostalgic nerves that they effortlessly breeze past crowdfunding goals. To that list you can now add a new Castlevania from a big Castlevania name.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night [Kickstarter] is an attempt to make a new explore-o-punch-a-platformer in the Castlevania style, lead by Koji Igarashi. You know, him who co-directed Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. You know, that one with the line about a man being a miserable little pile of secrets. Ooh!
