Bloodstained Ritual of the Night release changed in Kickstarter update

bloodstained ritual of the night release pushed to 2018

Bloodstained Ritual of the Night could be one of the most highly #anticipated Kickstarter projects this side Mighty No. 9. Of course the #game made a debut at E3 and reports outline that #development seems to be progressing quite well. The game was set to launch in March of 2017, but now fans will have to wait far longer before we get a chance to play it.

“We’ve got an important development update from IGA [Koji Igarashi] this week, and we wanted to make sure the backers were the first to hear it,” reads a new Bloodstained Ritual of the Night Kickstarter backer update. “In short: To ensure the game meets his quality standards, IGA is bringing on additional developers and has moved his estimate for the game’s release back to the first half of 2018.”
“All of us on the campaign and development sides of the team are looking forward to playing the finished game as soon as we can, but as IGA says, we also want this game to be “done right the first time.”
We’ll continue to keep you updated on the development process every step of the way. (In fact, the next regularly scheduled update, featuring some songs and commentary from Michiru Yamane, is just about ready to go. And as IGA mentioned, you can expect more news about the development process as soon as it’s available.)”

A footnote from IGA says keeping backers waiting is “the last thing” he wants to do, however he feels responsible for delivering the “best product” he possible can.
However it seems possible that the development changes and release date is in reflection to the Mighty No. 9 aftermath. There comes a point where a developer has to decide if what is promised is equal to or better than the final release.

What do you think about this change? Are you disappointed? Why do you think they need the whole extra year for?
