Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is headed to mobile platforms 'soon'


Pocket Gothic

Koji Igarashi's lavish adventure title Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is coming to iOS and Android. According to mobile publisher NetEase and developer ArtPlay, the dangerous and labyrinthine quest of Shardbinder Miriam will be arriving on the mobile platforms "soon."

Released for PC and consoles in 2019, following a long and somewhat troubled development period, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is Igarashi's first post-Castlevania release, and features the opulent surroundings, grim monsters, great music, and exploration elements that cemented the auteur's previous releases among the all-time classics. Players guide Miriam through a huge castle and its surrounding grounds, equipping new weapons, skills, and spells while defeating an army of hellish enemies en route to a showdown with the vengeful Gebel.

Bloodstained will feature a new mobile-optimized control system and a revamped UI for its small-screen debut, complete with new inventory "shortcut" buttons and simpler spell commands. The port will include over 120 monsters from the original release, as well as 107 weapons, 23 special skills, and all previously released DLC, making this platforming great a perfect time-killer for those long horse-and-coach journeys into the Carpathian mountains.
