We haven’t had an update on Bloodstained for quite some time so it may come as a relief to hear that the developers behind the long-awaited game will be holding a special panel at SXSW in March. The game’s Twitter account says that attendees can anticipate “new info, features and news to be revealed”.
Join legendary game designer, producer and writer Koji Igarashi (Castlevania: Symphony of the Night) to discuss Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Igarashi will share his experiences developing and creating one of the most buzzed-about fan-funded games of all time and will discuss his return to the “Metroidvania” genre he helped shape, define and re-imagine throughout the years. From character development, story and art design to music and gameplay, Igarashi will discuss the challenges and triumphs in bringing Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night to fans around the world. Discussion will be followed by a brief audience Q&A and meet-and-greet with Igarashi.
The “Legendary Koji Igarashi Chats Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night” panel is due to start on March 17th at 2 PM.
