I've seen this question pop up quite a lot on different sites: "Is it still possible to back Bloodstained?". For some reason, many don't know there is a slacker backer option. Here I will post the links, as well as how to get there from the official campaign site if you are an extra cautious individual.
There are currently two links, but they lead to the same place.
1.) Scroll all the way down to the FAQs, and it will be there
2.) Second way to get there is by the button next to the $250 tier
Once you reach the main site, one simply selects which rewards to the right you wish to purchase.
Afterwards, it should take you to a page where you can add on other rewards as well. (Note: If you already backed Bloodstained, please check your e-mails for the URLs being sent out beginning of 9/15/2015 which should take you to a similar looking page. The amount you donated will be subtracted from the total costs of your reward, but one can upgrade their pledge as well.)
Finally, once you click "Proceed to Checkout", this is where you fill in the details which includes e-mail, address, and payment options. If you chose a reward over $100, you get to choose a Credit Clan and which name you choose to display under it. If your rewards include multiple versions of the game, you can choose here how you want both the physical and digital versions of the game, as well as any other variables in the items that come with your rewards (such as the shirt size).
We’ll be sending the surveys off over the next several days. If you still haven’t received your survey by Monday the 21st of September, please email email@example.com. In the meantime however, please be patient!
If you stumble upon someone wanting to back, or if they want detailed explanations on how to get there themselves, please direct them to this guide! My hope for this thread is to make it as easy as possible for everyone involved.
LeoLeWolferoux: I'd be happy with Alucard as well. Besides, this essentially opens the door, anyway

RichterB: So now that the Simon, Ice Climbers, and Ridley E3 rumors for Smash are true, and RE2 Remake is real...the other E3 rumor connected to those was about a new Castlevania game project in development. I'm intrigued!

Bardic Knowledge: I think it would be cool if the Belmonts' Amiibos had functionality with Bloodstained.

Enkeria Gin: Bloodstained does not belong in Smash. There I said it.
Aug 9, 2018 12:11:57 GMT -6
Brainiac: But what about Smash (amiibos) in Bloodstained?

Brainiac: And if Miriam and co. get as popular as Shovel Knight, she might at least make Assist Trophy status.

Yän: Wow that's amazing... I need a switch
Aug 9, 2018 19:48:47 GMT -6
Yän: I just noticed that noisycroak made the smash ultimate main theme. Pretty cool!

Saint Germain: I am late but simon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bardic Knowledge: I'm more interested in playing as Richter. But that's partly because Symphony of the Night was my first Castlevania.
Aug 12, 2018 11:32:54 GMT -6
Yän: You're not alone. Richter as a character just has more appeal to me.

purifyweirdshard: I started with NES too and I still like Richter way more. Simon probably isn't even top 5 haha

Scuttlest: Based on my limited Castlevania experience (Portrait of Ruin, Order of Ecclesia, Rondo X PSP remake, and Symphony of The Night) Richter is the Belmont I'm most familiar with, so I'm game with his inclusion.

MorningSun: Simon is iconic for being in the first game, and in many that came after, however, because he is the first one, he's a bit more basic as a character compared to later ones (I still like him too, but Richter is really cool).
Aug 12, 2018 18:21:52 GMT -6
MorningSun: Oh, also, I am quite happy about the amount of Castlevania music in Smash right now, to say the least. The series has so much good music it's not surprising that they just decided to go crazy with it. haha

MorningSun: (Even Go! Getsu Fuuma, which is not even originally from Castlevania! And I really like that game, so I always enjoy when anything from that game is referenced anywhere really).
Aug 12, 2018 18:24:59 GMT -6
gunlord500: That game has a great OST
Aug 13, 2018 1:07:33 GMT -6
purifyweirdshard: I was surprised Fuuma was on there myself, especially funny considering it made it over other potential CV classics lol. I think Konami OGs really like/respect that game. It's interesting also how Noisycroak did the game's main theme, as Yan pointed out

purifyweirdshard: Some Konami/Bloodstained DNA in there
