8-Bit 'Bloodstained' Spin-Off to Come Out in May


Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon will release later this month on 3DS, PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, Vita, and Xbox One.

"I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon". With multiple endings, tonnes of secrets, and lots of different paths to choose, it looks like there's going to be heaps of replayability; ideal for those who want to pass the time until Ritual of the Night is finished. Along the way, three fellow travelers will join Zangetsu, and each are playable characters. If you hate reading, here's a link to the game's official website.

Switching to these characters with their unique abilities will unlock new paths through the treacherous stages.

Igarashi added that this upcoming spin-off game was being developed by Inti Creates, a Japanese developer that collaborated with the Bloodstained developers on the Kickstarter.

It features multiple endings that change according to the choices the gamer makes and on how you interact with characters you meet.

This 8-bit retro-style action game has been created to accompany Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night thanks to a stretch goal that the Kickstarter campaign had reached. Parallel to that, Koji Igarashi's Castlevania throwback is set for a release too.

"Also just a reminder that 505 Games isn't involved with "Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon". That means anyone who backed over a certain amount will get a code for Curse of the Moon for free.

Igarashi added that he was able to play the spin-off himself and "had a great deal of fun with it".
