Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Gets a Brand-New Story Trailer
Koji Igarashi's new game cannot come soon enough.
By Chris Morse
Today marked a significant milestone for fans who have been following Koji Igarashi's upcoming project. With its Kickstarter campaign originally launching way back in May 2015, it's been a long journey watching Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night come to life. Today marked the release of the Beta Backer Demo for those individuals who pledged money to the game's development. Specifically, backers who pledged at least $60.00 were able to download a demo for the first time and that alone is a good reason to be excited, given that the game is closer than ever to an official release.
There is no specific date yet, but the team behind the game say that the announcement of a release window is coming "very soon." In the meantime, we were treated to a brand-new trailer to coincide with the release of the demo, revealing a little bit more of the game's story and, more impressively, showing off a solid chunk of the game in action. For a side-scrolling title, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is looking incredibly smooth and impressive.
Although the 8-bit retro-style bonus game, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, held us over as a truly excellent trip down memory lane, we couldn't be more excited to find out when we will be able to get our hands on this one. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will eventually be released on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch.
