Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Developer Artplay and publisher Netease have released Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night for smartphones.

The action RPG is now available for iOS (via the App Store) and Android (via Google Play), for $9.99. It’s worth noting the smartphone version has enhancements to make mobile play easier, and is a paid download – there are no in-game microtransactions.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Netease:

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night for iOS and Android features all the action, gameplay and content of its console forebear with no compromises on visual quality or gameplay fidelity. In addition to an overhauled UI and redesigned shard icons, the mobile version includes all console DLC which makes this release the definitive edition of the game – for playing on the go.

Featuring over 120 unique mobs and bosses, all with special abilities for players to gain when vanquished, await in the vast Gothic castle with its countless challenges and surprises. The 107 weapons and 23 weapon skills have also been adapted to let players customize their fighting style, even without a controller.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night features a 2D-map, that has been perfectly adapted to be explored on mobile devices, as well as the familiar shard-buff-system from the console- and PC-version. Another highlight that will make fans feel right at home are the Gothic music and original voice actors from the game, like Ami Koshimizu (Miriam) and Shusaku Shirakawa (Gebel). In the future, the mobile version of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will get a new playable character, a boss rush mode and speedrun mode and much more.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is available on Windows PC (via GOG and Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. If you missed it, you can find our review here (we highly recommend it!)
