Castlevania isn’t just any old video game, it basically defined a genre of platforming gems. Now former Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi brings us his latest work, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.
Touted as the spiritual successor to the Castlevania horror-tinged side-scrolling arcade platform RPG adventure series, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is set in 19th century England.
Those brave enough to enter a creepy castle take on the role of Miriam, a cursed orphan who is tasked with saving humanity from a paranormal force that has infested the place with demons. She’ll also save herself in the process, as that curse she’s afflicted with has her slowly turning to crystal.
From what we’ve seen so far, the game, originally launched on Kickstarter after Igarashi left Konami, is really shaping up as a return to classic Castlevania-styled gameplay. We’ll find out more when the game launches for PS4 and Xbox One on June 20, with Switch following a week later on June 27.
