The gaming franchise also made a clear decision about the predicted earnings and especially about piracy. Igarashi also added that in order to lower anti-consumer practices and make DLC as safe and legitimate, the game will out for free. As a year ago, about 30,000 backers agreed with the feelings for DLC.

Hopefully, all the backers are destined to get the DLC as free. But, for the premium content, the price is fixed at 9.99 US dollars.
Release date and exclusive contents
Over this discussion, some fans are angry with the premium contents. As the franchise made backers exclusive content which includes the Iga Boss and the Swordwhip that are available for players. Bloodstained became a live project in 2015 as a Kickstarter project under the guidance of Castlevania producer, Igarashi. From that, it earned around 5.5 US million dollars however the record was broken by Shenmue after 3 months.
