USGamer recently posted a PAX West interview with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night‘s Koji Igarashi, where they talked about the game. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is currently slated for a 2019 release on multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch. According to Igarashi, that 2019 is a necessity. Here’s what he said about the game’s release date in full:
“2019 is the year. It’s definitely what we’re focusing on,” Igarashi confirms. “It’s very difficult for us to keep working for such a long production period, especially when using outsourced companies. Right now, we want to get [Bloodstained] out as soon as possible. Quality is still very important, but yes, 2019 is the year we need to release the game.
