The spiritual successor to the beloved Castlevania: Symphony of the Night may not be coming to the Wii U anymore.

Koji “IGA” Igarashi, the game’s Director had this to say on their Kickstarter:

“During our Kickstarter campaign [in 2015], the Wii U was at the height of its popularity, but the situation has drastically changed after the release of Nintendo Switch. This change made it difficult to receive the necessary support from the hardware maker, which has led us to drop the Wii U development and shift the development to Nintendo Switch.

“We are very sorry that it has come to this after all your support, but we hope you will understand,” he said.

Those who funded the game with the intention of getting a Wii U version of the game will be able to either select a different platform for the game, or request a refund. The deadline for a refund request is April 20th, 2017.
