Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night‘s Kickstarter page revealed that the 2D action platformer is now coming out in 2019.
The Castlevania spiritual successor was supposed to come out this year.
Producer Koji “Iga” Igarashi also revealed that the Vita version of the game is no more.
Iga used to work at Konami, where he was producer for many of the non-linear Castlevania games (which helped create the Metroidvania term, which describes these kind of 2D, exploration-based platformers).
Iga left Konami in 2014 to start Art Play, which received over $5.5 million in crowdfunding on Kickstarter for Bloodstained back in 2015.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will come out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
