Finally, after much speculation, our previous report earlier in the month surrounding the possibility of a new stretch goal for the development of the Wii U version of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been confirmed.

The spiritual successor to the revered Castlevania series will be coming to Wii U should the Kickstarter funds reach the $3 million mark. Given that this currently stands at over $2.75 million already, it shouldn’t be long until Wii U owners are rejoicing at the thought of Igarashi’s title coming home.

It appears the game will be in safe hands should the goal be achieved, as Armature Studio has been trusted with the development. The studio was founded by former Retro Studio developers who have previously worked on the Metroid Prime series and have recently seen success with Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate for Wii U, as well as a number of ports for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

In a statement posted on Kickstarter, Armature said:

“When we were approached with the opportunity to assist with Bloodstained on Wii U, we were ecstatic. This style of game is one we are intimately familiar with from our Metroid Prime days, and it’s exciting to once again put our familiarity with Nintendo hardware to good use. We have extensive remastering experience – our remastering projects include the Metal Gear Solid Collection for PS Vita, Injustice for PS Vita, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for PS4/XB1. We look forward to the challenge of making sure that the Wii U edition of Bloodstained stands proudly with its brethren on Unreal Engine 4.”

    Very much hoping this happens. Armature is a pretty good developer from my experience, too. Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate was a really fun game. Plus, it was in the Metroidvania style!
