It could be said that Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is one of the most highly anticipated Kickstarter projects bound for Nintendo platforms. We absolutely loved what we saw of it at E3, and it seems as though development has been progressing quite well. The game was set to launch in March of 2017, but it seems now that fans will have to wait quite a bit longer before getting a chance to play it.

Koji Igarashi recently put out another Kickstarter update where he broke the news that the game has been delayed until sometime in the first half of 2018. The main reason for the delay is that Igarashi did not believe that the game would meet his standards if development continued at the same rate that it currently is, so he pushed it back and added another development team. Here's the video:

Hopefully, the delay turns out to be well worth it. It'd be a real shame if the wait was all for nothing.

What do you think? Are you disappointed by this? What do you think they need the whole extra year for? Drop us a comment in the section below.
