Los Angeles – It’s been a year since we last saw Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, a Kickstarter campaign helmed by none other than Koji Igarashi, creator of the famed Castlevania series. Since then the game has got a new coat of paint with an ambiguous release of 2018 for PC, Xbox, PlayStation, PlayStation Vita and GOG.com. Still, from what I saw, the new title could be well worth the wait.

A 2.5D side-scroller, the game sticks to the rivers and lakes of the Castlevania titles of old for the most part. Instead of playing as someone from the famed vampire-slaying Belmont clan, Bloodstained puts you in the shoes of Miriam, an orphan survivor of a brutal ritual designed to summon demons. The effects of the ceremony place her into a deep sleep for 10 years and when she finally wakes up, she discovers she’s slowly but surely turning into crystal.
