Bloodstained is getting a backer-only demo soon

For $60 pledges and higher

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will have a playable demo available at E3, but you won’t need to be in Los Angeles with us next week to try it out. During the show or sometime “shortly after,” Inti Creates will send out the same preview build to backers who have pledged $60 or higher for Bloodstained and filled out their backer survey by June 13, 2016.

In other words, new backers still have time to sign up. The demo is Windows-only and contains a pre-castle section set on the Galleon Minerva stage shown in this trailer. “The lesser demons we’ve introduced in the last update (Morte, Seama, and Dullahammer) will appear, and the magi-crystals players will obtain from enemies, also known as ‘Shards,’ will also be included,” says Iga.

It is nice to see (and hear! my goodness!) a proper level like this. The team is still planning to release a beta for $60+ backers leading up to Bloodstained‘s March 2017 release. This demo is its own thing.
