In keeping with its post-launch roadmap, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Evening’s subsequent giant updates arrive the next day to come. The non secular successor to Castlevania: Symphony of the Evening is getting its long-awaited Vintage Mode in addition to a large crossover tournament with Kingdom: Two Crowns.
Vintage Mode is geared against old-school Castlevania lovers by way of 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 Useless Lands, a brand new space to the citadel that comes immediately from the kingdom-building simulator. Sooner than Miriam does that, regardless that, she’ll have to search out the crown first. Those updates come without 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.
In response to the sport’s roadmap, this marks the penultimate replace for the sport. The overall replace comes all through This fall and can function some other crossover in addition to a brand new playable persona. Previous updates have added a chairman revenge mode, chaos mode, extra customization choices, or even a as opposed to mode. It’ll be fascinating to peer what comes subsequent. Through that, I imply I need a full-blown sequel, which is usually a chance given how neatly the primary recreation bought (over one million copies as of June 2020).
For those who couldn’t inform, we loved Bloodstained reasonably a little bit. The sport effectively captured the most efficient components of Castlevania: Symphony of the Evening (now not a wonder given Bloodstained is helmed by way of SOTN mastermind, Koji Igarashi), whilst including a bevy of cool wrinkles to make it stand by itself. Take a look at our evaluate of the sport right here. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Evening is to be had for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Transfer, PC, iOS and Android.
