Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Reveals Switch Gameplay

Bloodstained

Koji Igarashi's successfully Kickstarted spiritual successor to the Castlevania series, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night released some gameplay footage for the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

Developed by ArtPlay, DICO, and WayForward Technologies, the game is an obvious callback to the Castlevania series made with modern technology. So the game utilizes heavily stylized 3D grahpics, the controls are sleeker, and the game is set in Victorian England. However the gameplay is very similar to the original Castlevania games. Which makes sense, considering Bloodstained was created by Igarashi, who worked on some of the most famous games in Konami's vampire hunting series including Symphony of the Night and Harmony of Despair.

The Switch version of the game has been highly anticipated by fans, and will be releasing this summer.

You can check out the Switch gameplay reveal below.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is a gothic horror action side-scrolling RPG set in 19th century England. A paranormal force has summoned a demon-infested castle, revealing crystal shards infused with tremendous magical power.
