Per its post-launch roadmap, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night time’s subsequent massive updates arrive tomorrow. The non secular successor to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night time is getting its long-awaited Basic Mode in addition to a giant crossover occasion with Kingdom: Two Crowns.
Basic Mode is geared in direction of old-school Castlevania followers by including an 16 bit-inspired UI and 5 ranges of vintage-style gameplay, together with new boss battles. In the meantime, The Kingdom: Two Crowns crossover provides the Lifeless Lands, a brand new space to the fort that comes straight from the kingdom-building simulator. Earlier than Miriam does that, although, she’ll have to search out the crown first. These updates come freed from cost to Bloodstained gamers and arrive as a part of Replace Model 1.20, that are slated to hit the sport January 14 at 10 a.m. PT.
Based mostly on the sport’s roadmap, this marks the penultimate replace for the sport. The ultimate replace comes throughout This fall and can function one other crossover in addition to a brand new playable character. Previous updates have added a boss revenge mode, chaos mode, extra customization choices, and even a versus mode. It’ll be fascinating to see what comes subsequent. By that, I imply I desire a full-blown sequel, which could possibly be a chance given how properly the primary recreation offered (over one million copies as of June 2020).
In case you couldn’t inform, we loved Bloodstained fairly a bit. The sport efficiently captured the perfect components of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night time (not a shock given Bloodstained is helmed by SOTN mastermind, Koji Igarashi), whereas including a bevy of cool wrinkles to make it stand by itself. Try our evaluation of the sport right here. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night time is offered for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Change, PC, iOS and Android.
