Bloodstained Ritual of the Night

The long-awaited Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, helmed by Castlevania series producer Koji Igarashi, is out next month. The improvements to the visuals have been pretty significant, and overall, it looks to be a massive game. More is coming after launch though – as per the official website, there are several modes and two additional playable characters in the works.

The modes include Speedrun, Boss Rush, Roguelike, Classic, Chaos, and Boss Revenge. Players will also receive the Pure Miriam Outfit, along with online/local co-op support and a Versus mode. Interestingly, publisher 505 Games has announced the Iga’s Back Pack DLC for $9.99, which features a battle with Igarashi and the Swordwhip as a reward.

505 Games’ Roberto Angel-Corlux addressed potential complaints from Kickstarter backers, since the items in the Iga’s Back Pack DLC were meant for those who crowd-funded the title. On Kickstarter, he stated that money was “a part” of the decision, adding, “The chief things I was considering was making sure everyone had a safe and legitimate way to get the full game experience no matter when they find out about Bloodstained, whether that’s 5 months ago or 5 years from now, and that we were being respectful of the price backers originally paid.”

Angel-Corlux also stated that in a questionnaire regarding the content being made available to everyone, the “overwhelming response” from almost 30,000 backers was “That in general you were okay with it.” We’ll see how this pans out in the long-term.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night arrives on June 18th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, with the Nintendo Switch version releasing on June 25th.
