Kinda bummed the digital version doesn't include the in-game extras. Kinda silly to not offer that.

This is the first game project I've seen that I'm tempted to kick money into. I so want the $300 reward.

Also, I don't think they have enough backer reward levels. /s

I backed Might no 9, it would be shameful of me to back that and not this.
Forgot to mention MICHIRU YAMANE is in charge of the OST, as she should be.

Sometimes losing the rights to the original series makes the developers come up with something even better. Like Arc System Works losing Guilty Gear and creating BlazBlue.

Now I just need to decide which platform I want this on. Leaning toward PS4, but I also have a Forza Box ONE and the Crown Prince of Hell, Leviathan.

The $28 tier doesn't leave much to be desired especially when it'll be priced the same or lower during launch on Steam. I was hoping for backer-only extras but I'll just wait for the release instead.

Despite that, I'm quite excited for this game & hope it goes full speed to launch.

I can't get to it at work, but speedrunner Romscout sat down to play SotN and show some of the glitches the community has found to Iga. Some of the comments and back-and-forth was pretty entertaining. Romscout even has Iga try one of the Richter skips toward the end.

I think this is it:

Ditto, will probably be getting at, or near, launch.

Eccentric kickstarter video. Castlevania was the reason I bought the Nintendo DS Lite.

Well, you guys who aren't... it's probably true, but you are adding to the total which can do more kickstart stretch goals.

I put in for 28. Like someone else said, I put in for Mighty no 9, even though it's turning out to seem like shit.... it's hard for me not to put it in this. I hope this doesn't go through that shitty roller coaster that was mighty no 9. Michiru Yamane pretty much sold it for me.

Art style is a major turn off. Nothing "gothic" and much more "anime junk" style. No gameplay footage (expected but still) very little to go off of in the story. And really nothing other than some concept art???

I'm passing. I love Castlevania games but I have to see more and right now there is nothing but hype and Itag playing SOTN on Twitch streams. I refuse to back anymore games that can't at least give me greater insight into what they plan to do instead of "Fund this and I'll add it". Even for such great franchises like this.

I hope they make it a bit darker and less "cute" otherwise its not Castlevania... at all.

$150k to add cheat codes, but only 100k more for a second character?

Something doesn't sound right about that.

It's more 250k to add co-op.
The cheat codes are just a bonus as a halfway point to getting co-op. No one cares about cheat codes.

Wow... 2 million already!

I thought that was the final goal when I checked this thread a few days ago. Seems like there's a "classic mode" 2.5 million goal now. This is all with 28 days to go. They're going to end up over 5 million dollars.

I'm excited for it, but I'm gonna keep it under control. Release estimate is 2 years away and KS have had bad results before.

I hope it plays a bit like DoS or OoE.

With each additional goal reach I feel a month delay coming. I would vastly prefer them stick to a final ideal size for the game, and only add small things that increase production quality. Adding so many different modes and things will make the game development bloated.

The next stretch goal at $3 million is a Wii U port. Good news for me since I happen to own one.

I'm now tempted to pledge, but not sure if my pledge would be able to get me the Wii U version as that isn't a reward ... :confused:

15 days left.

Wii U port goal was hit, PS Vita port at 3.5 million (still a ways off). Apparently you can get the wii U version at any tier where it currently says xbox or ps4.

Close to 3.2million it could be possible!

Wow I'm surprised it took so long for orchestrated tracks to show up.

As long as this turns out fairly bugless, and is akin to symphony of the night, i'm on this like stink on shit.

And funded!
That just made this IGA's magnum opus, I cannot believe orchestrated tracks are in! This is amazing, largest castle ever and orchestrated tracks...SOTN, eat your heart out. Wow, cannot wait.

Personally, they should take out Wii port and Vita and replace them with something else. But that might just be because I just don't really see those as something that'll really affect as many people, esp people like myself. But I don't own the new gen stuff.
