Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is Getting Playable Bloodless Character

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Publisher 505 Games and developer Artplay have announced a new update for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, adding yet another playable character to the game.

The new update will add the Bloodless boss character as a bonus playable character. While details are scant, Artplay said “Stay tuned this week for more info and a Roadmap Update. Thank you for playing.”

Here’s a new short video of Bloodless in action:

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is the FULL game experience, an exploration-focused, side-scroller action RPG packing all of the best features you’ve come to know and love from the Metroidvania genre into a single, content-packed game.

Play as Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist’s curse which slowly crystallizes her body. In order to save herself, and indeed, all of humanity, she must battle her way through a demon-infested castle summoned by Gebel, her old friend whose body and mind has become more crystal than flesh.

WHAT’S IN THE GAME?

13 FREE DLCs via future content updates. “Speed Demon” Update containing Speed Run Mode, Boss Rush Mode and the Pure Miriam outfit available at launch!

Addictingly tight and satisfying gameplay alongside a rich new story in the gothic dark fantasy style of Koji Igarashi, the celebrated godfather of “Igavania” games.

Story cut scenes and NPC interactions fully voice acted by a star-studded cast, including actors like David Hayter, Ray Chase and Erica Lindbeck to name just a few. (Seriously, we have a lot of voice acting star power in this game, it’s kinda nuts…)

Three playable characters, two of which have yet to be revealed…

Literally a metric ton of weapons and spells, which you can upgrade, level up and visually customize.

Beautiful 2.5D graphics: 3D models crafted with a lot of love and care on a 2D game environment. That means lots of cool tricks that “regular” 2D can’t do…

THE FUTURE

Expect a worryingly large amount of announcements and updates, everything from updating the look of this Steam page to the game in general. It’s going to be one wild ride.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is out now on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we highly recommend it!). A mobile port for the game is coming “soon”, read more here.
