Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night released

Side-scrolling action RPG is out now, free DLC on the way

Posted on

Publisher 505 Games have announced that Koji Igarashi’s gothic side-scrolling action RPG Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, from developer ArtPlay, is available today.

Set in 18th century England, where a paranormal force has summoned a demon-infested castle, revealing crystal shards infused with tremendous magical power, players take on the role of Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist curse which slowly crystallizes her body, enabling her to use spells, weapons, special items and abilities. To save humanity and herself, Miriam must fight through the castle while collecting, crafting and unlocking a vast array of weapons, equipment and loot to defeat the summoner Gebel and his minions and bosses.

More than a dozen DLCs are promised post-launch as free updates, including Online and Local Co-op and VS. mode, Roguelike mode, Boss Rush, Chaos mode and Nightmare Difficulty. Secret playable characters are also promised. The Speed Demon Update, which adds optimized graphics, visuals and balance, in addition to Speed Run Mode, Boss Rush Mode and the Pure Miriam Outfit, will be available at launch.

Also available today for PC (and later on consoles) is the “Iga’s Back Pack” DLC, priced at $9.99. Players who opt in will be able to fight Koji Igarashi himself as a boss in-game and once defeated, earn the powerful Swordwhip weapon.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night are priced at $39.99 and is out today for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The Nintendo Switch version will launch next week.
