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!
Goobsausage: Meanwhile in Japan, Iga is watching old game-shaped Kraft Macaroni commercials and thinking "...Bloodstained needs its own macaroni!"

purifyweirdsoul: We can only hope. That or the cereal. Perhaps both

emokkon: Is there a board about the new game plus features
Apr 25, 2017 5:32:37 GMT -6
XombieMike: Nope. It's been mentioned, but never a dedicated thread. At least the search feature doesn't find one.
Apr 25, 2017 7:05:13 GMT -6
purifyweirdsoul: Hm...no, I don't think we've had a focused discussion for just that, iirc. Would be a good one to start

Scuttlest: Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite got its first Story Trailer today.
Apr 25, 2017 9:18:35 GMT -6
Scuttlest: Actually looks like a decently interesting plot. But I'm a little gun shy with Capcom's fighting game crossovers after SFxT.
Apr 25, 2017 9:19:23 GMT -6
Galamoth: I'm only into MvCI for Mega Man X. No other character, really.
Apr 25, 2017 10:06:03 GMT -6
purifyweirdsoul: Well, since Ultron Sigma is known as the villain now, that's more reason to be into it as an X fan. That's a really cool idea and I'm glad they went with it. SFxT may have been rough, but UMvC3 and TvC were great.
Apr 25, 2017 10:07:59 GMT -6
purifyweirdsoul: And even SFxT ended up pretty good imo
Apr 25, 2017 10:08:08 GMT -6
Scuttlest: Imo, SFxT was a kind of glitch mess which had some of Capcom's most questionable DLC practices put into it. Especially the pay-to-win gems.
Apr 25, 2017 10:11:00 GMT -6
Galamoth: Unless... Sigma will be playable.
Apr 25, 2017 10:13:38 GMT -6
Scuttlest: He is, though the trailer made it look like he's a pre-order bonus.
Apr 25, 2017 10:14:13 GMT -6
Galamoth: Then I'll play both X and Sigma almost exclusively.
Apr 25, 2017 10:14:16 GMT -6
Scuttlest: Hold on, I'll post the story trailer in the MvCI thread if no one has done that yet.
Apr 25, 2017 10:14:38 GMT -6
Galamoth: I have already.
Apr 25, 2017 10:14:55 GMT -6
Scuttlest: I will not rest until I've had my VENGEANCE.
Apr 25, 2017 10:15:30 GMT -6
purifyweirdsoul: That's all true, though the actual fighting game of SFxT got great in the 2012 patch. It felt like an older Capcom fighting game. We used the default gem sets too, so that DLC wasn't really an issue
Apr 25, 2017 10:22:26 GMT -6
purifyweirdsoul: Hopefully Injustice 2 is careful with its gear system, to not be much like how the gems were. That could be a problem
