Inti Creates have announced that the upcoming title, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, will have a playable build at E3 2016. 

This E3 preview is a simple playable demo and tutorial of this Minerva stage. The lesser demons we’ve introduced in the last update (Morte, Seama, and Dullahammer) will appear, and the magi-crystals players will obtain from enemies, also known as “Shards,” will also be included.

Oh—I see I’ve already forgotten to mention something important: Morte isn’t a full-fledged demon, and so doesn’t have a shard. This is important so I’ll say it again: Morte has no shard.

In addition to this news, they’ve also announced that there will be a backer demo to be released on June 13, 2016, for anyone who backed Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night at the $60 tier or higher and HAVE fill out their backer survey by June 13, 2016. So if you only backed it at a lower tier or didn’t fill out your survey just yet, you may want to revisit that. 

The preview demo that you’ll be getting is the same build IGA and the team will be showing at the Xbox booth at this year’s E3. We plan to start distributing it during the show or shortly afterward. Some FAQs (figuratively asked questions):

The demo will only be available for Windows and will be available via Stream. They also want to make everyone aware that this is IS NOT the beta, which will be coming later, again to everyone at the $60 tier or higher.
