Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the latest work by Koji Igarashi, has been rather appreciated both by the public and by the critics, despite the fact that the game is not absolutely immune to defects. Mainly the Switch version has already received a large number of patches, but it still seems qualitatively inferior to the others.
So much so that the same producer of Castlevania and author of the title, said he was rather surprised by the number of problems found and by the bad quality in general of the development of the Nintendo version of the game, as stated in a recent interview:
“There were, of course, concerns about hardware limitations, but we did not expect it to be so bad when it came out. Unfortunately, some problems occurred that we did not expect. With WayForward’s help, these problems were identified and they are now working hard to optimize the Switch version “.
Although not everything went smoothly, Igarashi also stated that in his intentions Bloodstained can become a real series. Since this chapter was created thanks to Kickstarter, there is no need to rely on large producers who may want to control the art direction. Is there, therefore, a new chapter on the horizon?
What do you think? Have you enjoyed Bloodstained? Would you like a sequel?
