Development on the Wii U version of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been cancelled in favor of a Switch version, project lead Koji Igarashi said in a Kickstarter update.


“Here’s the full message from Igarashi:

Hello, this is IGA.

Thank you for always supporting us. I would like to give a message to the backers who pledged for the Wii U version of Bloodstained.

During our Kickstarter campaign, the Wii U was at the height of its popularity, but the situation has drastically changed after the release of Nintendo Switch.

This change made it difficult to receive the necessary support from the hardware maker, which has led us to drop the Wii U development and shift the development to Nintendo Switch.

We are very sorry that it has come to this after all your support, but we hope you will understand. We would like to respond by preparing options for our backers, such as moving your pledge to another version or requesting a refund if you don’t want any other version.

We hope you will continue to support us.”

If you backed Bloodstained on Kickstarter and selected the Wii U version in your backer survey, you’ll automatically be moved to the Switch version.
