Friday the 13th: The Game developer IllFonic has denied reports that the studio has moved on from the game.

The following tweet was released.

 

 

IllFonic then went on to note that they have multiple teams and no resources are being taken away from one game for another. Hopefully this puts the false story to bed.

Here is some awesome news. Splatoon 2 has sold over 671K physical copies in Japan in its first  3 days. This far outpaces the sales of Zelda on Switch and shows that Splatoon 2 will be a major player in terms of system sales for the Switch.

In addition, 102K Switch systems were sold in Japan in the 3 days.

For comparison. The original Splatoon’s Japanese debut sales were 156,610 physical copies on Wii U.

Inti Creates is no longer part of the development of Bloodstained…..At least not the main game.

The developers revealed on the game’s forums that Inti Creates left the main project last E3, but they will still produce the “prequel mini-game.” DICO hastaken Inti Create’s place, and  ArtPlay is also still the main developer.

 

Maybe it is best to clarify it here. Inti Creates is not involved in the main development of the Bloodstained game, but they are involved in the prequel mini-game. Part of the vagueness is to avoid unneeded attention and negative speculation. So yes, they are involved but not in the main game since last year’s E3. DICO has picked up the development from where they have left off under mutual agreement.

A lot of parties are involved so it could be quite confusing. ArtPlay is the main developer, while we are hiring DICO as a third party developer. We created the game design, story, direction, gimmicks, and the overall production of the game while DICO creates art assets, design levels, and basically filling in the manpower ArtPlay doesn’t have. In the future, you’ll most likely see 505 Games and ArtPlay credited on trailer videos and articles to come out.
