Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night sequel officially confirmed

At the end of May we got some good news for fans of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. 505 Games confirmed that a “second version” is in development. The information came from their third quarter earnings presentation for fiscal year 2020/2021.

Well, this time around, the Bloodstained Twitter account has acknowledged the recent reports, confirming that 505 Games and ArtPlay are working on a sequel. At the moment, it’s in the early stages of development and the plan is to finish polishing the development of the original game, which we recall that despite its successful Kickstarter campaign, at launch was riddled with bugs, glitches and performance issues. However, its developers have been improving the game little by little with multiple updates, making adjustments, corrections and adding content.

At the moment, the platforms on which the sequel to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will be released have not been shared, but considering that it’s available on all platforms, it would be strange if it doesn’t come to Switch, and we’ll stay tuned to keep you updated on any new developments.

Finally, we remind you of the premise of the original title and its trailer:

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is a side-scrolling gothic horror action RPG set in 18th century England. A paranormal force has summoned a demon-infested castle, causing crystal shards containing tremendous magical power to appear.

She plays Miriam, an orphan tragically scarred by an alchemist’s curse that slowly crystallises her body. In order to save herself and all of humanity, Miriam must travel through the castle fighting to defeat the summoner, Gebel.

Collect, craft and unlock a variety of weapons, equipment and loot to defeat the countless minions and hellish bosses that await you!
