Kickstarter's proved something of a poisoned chalice for Mighty No. 9 backers, but there's hope that Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will come together quicker and better than its peer. It's already looking alright, with a PC build on the E3 2016 show floor this week. The exploration looks suitably Metroidvania-esque as you'd expect, and while the animations aren't quite up to par yet, the presentation looks pretty good to us.

We assume that this is still quite early, with the Koji Igarashi produced adventure not out for another eight months or so. But it appears to be coming together better than expected, doesn't it? What a pleasant surprise!
