Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night follows the protagonist Miriam, an orphan who is afflicted by an alchemist’s curse, which is slowly turning her skin into crystal. To stop the curse, Miriam must explore a dangerous castle and locate its summoner, Gebel, who has suffered from the same curse for a long time.

“A gothic, exploration-focused action platformer, designed by one of the godfathers of the genre!”

The game is expected to follow the Metroidvania-style gameplay of the post-Symphony of the Night and Order of Ecclesia games of the Castlevania series; by defeating enemies, Miriam will gain powers enabled by the crystals on her body, as well as items that can be used to craft new weapons and armor. The game will be presented in a 2.5D style, presenting the game in three-dimensional graphics but restricting movement to a 2D system. Igarashi stated the choice for 2.5D was that it follows in the style of his previous Castlevania games.

“She is a woman of few words but strong of purpose. Her youth is deceiving, making her seem confrontational and quick to judge, though in reality she is constantly evaluating her next step. The pain she felt as an orphaned child fuels her compassionate desire to protect her loved ones and friends.”
