Like I said in chat, I was sorta expecting this. The Wii U was nearing the end of its lifespan and the Switch seems to be really hot (a lot of people are buying it due to Breath of the Wild, I hear). Putting Bloodstained on the Switch may be a sensible way to capitalize on the system's success
Now, I wonder if our update will mention this...it seems to be pretty important, so I'd wager Steve and the other folks will really wanna think about what they're gonna say, what sort of information the fans would be most concerned about, and if they wanna reveal any other stuff
The team is discussing how they wish to address the recent thread containing pictures of a Nintendo Switch screen with a news item that may be a hoax. Those are my words not theirs, but Mana requested I make that thread private for now to prevent any confusion. As soon as I have confirmation that either it's a hoax or an official announcement I will return the thread to public view.
Until then, lets contain our excitement and wait for an official word on this.
I'd like to add that multiple Switch owners have checked their news menus and have not seen the news that was listed in those pictures.

Thanks for the explanation! Whatever happens, I am mostly excited for the update that should be coming soon, no matter what the topic will be. Switch is an exciting topic at the moment, though. I am waiting to change/upgrade my pledge.
Yeah, good call, XombieMike. The game may or may not be coming out on the Switch, but I've seen a lot of screenshots get faked, so if other folks have mentioned the news isn't showing up for them, something fishy might be going on. It's definitely best to wait for confirmation from the team.
Interesting! I read one of those articles as well and didn't really think anything of it. I did get a Switch however and can confirm that I have not seen any Bloodstained related news bits pop up. Regardless, I wouldn't be surprised in the least if we get a Switch Port. Bloodstained would be a great fit for the system!

Olrox: Damn that Castlevania series trailer looks lit! I had high hopes for this since I heard it about a year or so ago, now I'm hyped!!!!

crocodile: XombieMike In the art you just posted to the fanart gallery, is the image URL from pivix? That won't load. Upload the image to imgur and use that URL for the image URL and that should get the image to work in the gallery

Goobsausage: What if the artist doesn't want people re-uploading their art to other sources?
May 24, 2017 22:18:59 GMT -6
crocodile: As long as you credit/source them, 99.9% of artists are fine sharing their work. Those who aren't WILL let you know . However the issue I'm describing is true of all of pivix. It's not an artist by artist decision but a quirk of the site

crocodile: Same as how linking to Famitsu may not work but C & P the url will work

Dragon_of_Dojima: I thought it was going to be live action. Netflix is really going all out with the animation.

purifyweirdsoul: I don't get why so many people thought live action. We've been talking about it here for a while...
May 25, 2017 9:39:33 GMT -6
castledan: It said animation in the original thing. The only way people thought it was live action is if they didn't read it. Lol

castledan: Question: Is there any DS cartridge sounding Lament Of Innocence covers out there?
May 25, 2017 19:46:30 GMT -6
castledan: Watching footage of Lament Of Innoncence and man as repetitive and simple as the level design was the visuals and designs were beautiful. Curse took a step down visually but made up for it in size. I wonder what a big budget 3d IGA game could be like.

ghaleon: wasn't the next monster hunter supposed to be on pc as well... or that they were making a pc monster hunter? And yeah lament looked great, it steams me that you couldn't free-look with the camera like you could in curse, such a shame
