I can't get enough of Bloodstained's soothing post-game grind

After spending a literal 24 hours with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, I've come to the conclusion that it stands a very real chance of being one of my favorite games of 2019. I honestly didn't expect it! As much as I adore Iga's brand o...

Where is our review for Bloodstained?

The Bloodstained Kickstarter has been a wild ride. First people were mad about the delays, then they loved the backer demo. Then they were mad about 505 Games dropping the Vita and Wii U platforms (after we obtained mixed messaging fro...

I'm not really feeling Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

It's hard to believe that the metroidvania genre nearly died a decade ago. With Konami and Nintendo basically moving on from the likes of Castlevania and Metroid, it fell on indie developers to continue the legacies that those series starte...

Bloodstained Vita port has been cancelled

During this year's E3, there was something of a kerfuffle when I reported that Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night would be a download only title for the PlayStation Vita. Apparently, some wires got crossed and the developers behind the game ...

A fresh look at Bloodstained just in time for Halloween

It's all too fitting that we'd get a Bloodstained development update on Halloween. The team has shared a few tracks as well as a new video depicting a courtyard area and a clash with Zangetsu, a samurai who "resents anyone and anything tain...

Bloodstained is still looking good, if a little slow

Let's do a quick recap on Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's development process. Back in 2015, former Konami developer Koji Igarashi managed to scrape up $5.5 million in funding, Inafune style, with a "stick it to the man" Kickstarter cam...

Bloodstained kills its Wii U version, jumps over to Switch

In yet another death spasm for Nintendo's second-newest console, the Wii U version of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been cancelled. Instead, developer Inti Creates is pivoting to a version for the Nintendo Switch. No other plat...

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is also coming to Switch

Bloodstained shows off a pair of new enemies

For this month's backer update for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, designer IGA spoke with composer Michiru Yamane, whose music you'll know and surely dig from games like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (yep, there it goes -- it's st...

Will Bloodstained be the latest game to ditch Wii U?

With basically every indie/Kickstarter developer pulling a 180 on their Wii U plans, it stands to reason that Bloodstained would too -- though nothing has been officially announced yet. Some people want the team to just tell backers now, so...

Publisher 505 Games picks up Bloodstained

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night should be a good fit for 505 Games, and vice-versa. The publisher, known for repping titles like Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Terraria, and Abzu, has secured worldwide publishing rights for Iga's metroidv...

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will now release in 2018

It's still super early, but hey, it's Bloodstained in action

Taking a break from sharing shaders and the like, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's Koji Igarashi has something else for this backer update: footage of the game for our prying eyes! It includes Miriam wielding a katana, kicking, and runn...

Bloodstained development update offers 3D model glamour shots

Look, it's Bloodstained. While Ritual of the Night isn't quite the same when Iga himself isn't demonstrating the gameplay to you, I suppose it's nice to see tangible evidence of the game as a work in progress rather than heady ideal. This ...
