With less than two days left in its Kickstarter, Castlevania successor Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is now the most funded video game in Kickstarter history.

As of this writing, Bloodstained, the development of which is being led by Koji Igarashi, has raised more than $4.25 million. The Kickstarter ends at 11 p.m. ET on June 12. Its initial goal was $500,000.

If the game's funding hits $4.5 million it will get a prequel mini-game for PC and consoles. At $4.75 million it will get the prequel for portables and at $5 million the game will include roguelike dungeons.

Already, Kickstarter stretch goals have unlocked a Wii U and Vita port of the game as well as an online challenge mode and slew of other add-ons.

In Bloodstained players take on the role of Miriam, a woman whose skin has been fused with crystals that give her special abilities. The game achieved its goal of $500,000 in a single day.

The game is now expected to launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Windows PC and Xbox One.
