I'm sorry, I'm just not surprised at all.
It took only a few days for former Castlevania producer Koji "IGA" Igarashi's Kickstarter campaign to reach its goal of $500,000.
It has since generated nearly $4.5 million and the campaign isn't even over yet. It has already become the most funded video game ever on Kickstarter, easily eclipsing the former record-holder, Torment: Tides of Numenera , which pulled in $4,188,000. As Bloodstained follows in the footsteps of old 2D Castlevania titles, does this not prove that such a style of gameplay isn't dead?
I say Konami needs to seriously consider a true-blue successor to Symphony of the Night . The gaming world quite clearly would adore one.
