Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Cancelled For Wii U, Switch Version Announced

Blood­stained: Rit­u­al of the Night’s Wii U ver­sion has been can­celled, but will now lunch on the Nin­ten­do Switch. This announce­ment comes via the Kick­starter.

The rea­son for the change is sim­ply due to the Wii U’s decline and the pop­u­lar­i­ty of the Switch. 

Thank you for always sup­port­ing us. I would like to give a mes­sage to the back­ers who pledged for the Wii U ver­sion of Bloodstained. 

Dur­ing our Kick­starter cam­paign, the Wii U was at the height of its pop­u­lar­i­ty, but the sit­u­a­tion has dras­ti­cal­ly changed after the release of Nin­ten­do Switch. 

This change made it dif­fi­cult to receive the nec­es­sary sup­port from the hard­ware mak­er, which has led us to drop the Wii U devel­op­ment and shift the devel­op­ment to Nin­ten­do Switch. 

We are very sor­ry that it has come to this after all your sup­port, but we hope you will under­stand. We would like to respond by prepar­ing options for our back­ers, such as mov­ing your pledge to anoth­er ver­sion or request­ing a refund if you don’t want any oth­er version. 

We hope you will con­tin­ue to sup­port us.

 Those who have ordered a Wii U ver­sion from the Kick­starter will auto­mat­i­cal­ly be changed to a Switch. Any­one who wants a copy for anoth­er con­sole can choose from the list pro­vid­ed through the Kickstarter.

Alter­na­tive­ly you can get your mon­ey refund­ed if you meet the fol­low­ing requirements. 

  • You filled out your backer sur­vey and select­ed the Wii U ver­sion pri­or to this update.
  • You backed at an unlim­it­ed tier ($28 to $500)
  • You are able to receive a refund via PayPal
  • You sub­mit your refund request before the April 20, 2017 deadline. 

All requests should be e‑mailed to with the sub­ject “Blood­stained Wii U refund.”
