The backer demo for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been delayed.

On Kickstarter, project lead Koji Igarashi announced that the Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night backer demo has been pushed back until June 28. The demo was supposed to release on June 21. According to Igarashi, the game was showcased at E3, where the team found a number of bugs and glitches that they wanted to iron out before releasing the demo.

"We showcased the demo at E3, but after watching many people play the demo, we found a couple of bugs that we want to fix and several adjustments we wanted to make in order to deliver a better beta experience," Igarashi stated.

"We were very busy supporting the demo for E3, and we have been working all the way up to today's release date to try to avoid pushing it back, but we were not quite able to complete the work that needs to be done to make the beta experience a great one for backers. As a result, we are forced to delay from the promised date, and we are very sorry. Please continue to look forward to the beta a little longer, and thank you for your patience."

A few weeks ago, Inti Creates, the team behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, released an 8-bit prequel to the upcoming game, entitled Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. The title was a promised stretch goal of Ritual of the Night's 2015 Kickstarter campaign. You can read our review of Curse of the Moon here.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will release for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and Xbox One.
