About

Bloodstained is an exploration-focused, side-scroller action RPG packing all of the best features you've come to know and love from the Metroidvania genre into a single, content-packed game.
Play as Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist’s curse which slowly crystallizes her body. In order to save herself, and indeed, all of humanity, she must battle her way through a demon-infested castle summoned by Gebel, her old friend whose body and mind has become more crystal than flesh.
WHAT'S IN THE GAME?
- Addictingly tight and satisfying gameplay alongside a rich new story in the gothic dark fantasy style of Koji Igarashi, the celebrated godfather of "Igavania" games.
- A game soundtrack by genre and industry veteran Michiru Yamane, performed by a full live orchestra ensemble.
- Story cut scenes and NPC interactions fully voice acted by a star-studded cast, including actors like David Hayter, Ray Chase and Erica Lindbeck to name just a few. (Seriously, we have a lot of voice acting star power in this game, it's kinda nuts...)
- A total of three playable characters, two of which have yet to be revealed...
- Literally a metric ton of weapons and spells, which you can upgrade, level up and visually customize.
- Beautiful 2.5D graphics: 3D models crafted with a lot of love and care on a 2D game environment. That means lots of cool tricks that "regular" 2D can't do...
WHEN?
We're going to be revealing the release window of the game very soon.
THE FUTURE
Expect a worryingly large amount of announcements and updates, everything from updating the look of this Steam page to the game in general. It's going to be one wild ride.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night reviews and comments

8/10   
+ Classic Metroidvania Design
+ Variety in shard system
+ Provides strong sense of direction
+ Snappy controls

- 2.5D visuals sometimes feel cheap
- Perhaps a little too similar to it's inspiration
- Too many competing systems added unnecessary fluff
Graphics pretty bad, architecture is fine, but characters are really bad, especially in a cutscenes, looks very outdates. Gameplay feels outdated as well, like old castlevania, yes, but it became very boring after an hour. Controls are not tight and it feels like there is a big input lag(PS4 pro).
Much better than I expected, especially given the high-profile failure of its Kickstarted contemporary, Mighty No. 9.  Delivers on its promise to satisfy that old Symphony of the Night itch, and puts its budget on the screen in the form of some suprisingly strong 3D graphics. Falters in the storyline/cutscenes/voice acting department, but if we're being honest with ourselves, those were never the older Castlevanias strong points, either. You can't deny they put a lot of effort into it, at least.

Very strong return to form, and hopefully the start of a bonafide new series.

8/10
