After leaving Konami a little over a year ago, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night creator Koji Igarashi is turning to Kickstarter to help fund his next game, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, a 2.5D adventure that appears to be heavily inspired by the brand he helped create. Symphony of the Night fans will be happy to know that Bloodstained sounds like the 2.5D Metroidvania game we've wanted to see from Igarashi for years. The game stars a young woman with amnesia who storms a castle to fight off a plague of demons while collected crystals and using a new crafting system to make weapons and spells. We chatted with Igarashi about this new project, why he had trouble finding another publisher, and how Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 inspired him.
