Wow. Hopefully the game will live up to the expectations of the backers.

at 4,220,000 with 38 hour left as of now

confirms for Vita and a 3rd playable character.

could make the goal for the mini-game prequel at 4.500.000

but the big target I'm sure everyone wants is the Rougelike Dungeon at 5,000,000 but am afraid there is not enough time fore it.

Likely won't hit 5 million. But hell, We got all the other stretch goals including the New Game +

I'm a proud backer. Love and respect for Koji Igarashi!!

Yep; I'm glad to have played my part in the backing as well. I was like #8000 something. I would have been earlier but I worked that morning.

$100 pledge for me. Would bump it too $150 but I just played $210 on ear drops (no insurance) for a severe ear infection :(

Hoping for a SOTN killer! Wishful thinking?

Well sure at kickstarter. Star Citizen continued it's funding on their own website and is now at over 84 million dollars.

I'm glad Bloodstained is happening though, might pitch in later.

its great at this game got funded, but they definitely did not need this amount. They have investors who are willing to pay for most of the game, they just wanted to test the market with kickstarter.

anyway, I will definitely get this game when it gets released. Only castlevania game i played properly was the Gameboy version.
