    The spiritual successor to the "Igavania" styled Castlevania games, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, has faced another delay. Not only has the game been pushed back to 2019, an announcement was made stating that the PlayStation Vita version of the game has been cancelled. According to the team, the Vita port cancellation is due to Sony discontinuing physical games for the system, and getting rid of online support for some games, rather than the cause being internal issues with the game itself. Those who backed Bloodstained and requested a Vita version can now change their platform, or instead ask for a refund. The reason for the game's delay is to improve the project based on player input from the recent beta and E3 impressions.

    Oof, now all the leftover Vita pirates are gonna be rather salty. ;o;

    No, really. I feel for you. All this time spent and now it feels wasted.

    It had been delayed another time, to a 'possible' 2018 release, though they never said explicitly. Now it's confirmed the game won't launch this year.

    I would buy this for the vita if it got a Card release. I feel the vita will get a PSP trearment which means we will have tu connect the vita to the ps4/ps5 to download our games. Sad.,..

    seems the PSVITA's EOL is very close, and thanks to all vita pirates they even cancel the porting... that means i'll get it for Switch!

    Kickstarter projects are cursed. I have not seen a single good Kickstarter game that arrived on time and delivered.

    Called it vaporware from the beginning. This is why I don't get hyped for anything anymore. At least when you expect the worst you don't get disappointed.

    Eh, the recent demo showed a lot of polish over the first one, so I think it will be worth the wait.
