The next time you play Bloodstained, make a new save to play as Bloodless

Name your save file ‘BLOODLESS’ with all caps

Every now and then, I catch a passing glimpse of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, and I think “Yeah, I could obsessively play that again.” The moment hasn’t come yet, but one of these days, it will.

Some of you might be at that point with the arrival of Bloodless, a boss-turned-bonus-playable-character. You can play as her with a new save file named “BLOODLESS.” (Classic!) As for the lady in red’s stat progression, be on the lookout for crystal globes to earn “new skills and improve her attributes.”

This update is live on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and – you know how this goes – it’s coming to Nintendo Switch in December. The developers also worked in bug fixes for Bloodstained‘s Randomizer Mode.

It’s worth mentioning that Bloodless is bonus content that’s separate from the “previous development roadmap.” With that in mind, the game is still getting a new “unnamed playable character.”

Realistically, I’m probably going to hold off until then.
