At the New Games Plus Expo on Twitch last week, they’ve announced that a sequel to Bloodstained will be released on July 10th.
As the game is a sequel to the Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night spin-off, it leaves the Metroid section of the Metroidvania formula and specifically carries on the gameplay of classic Castlevania games such as Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse.
The little 8-bit game, coming roughly in two weeks will come under the care of Inti Creates and will continue the first Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, which was released two years ago and can still be bagged on Steam for $ 4.99. within the framework of a summer sale.
Those who played the game before will encounter a lot of familiar faces, as the game has been enriched with three new playable heroes in addition to the existing characters. Also, a new addition to the series is the first-ever 2-player co-op option.
Description of the game on Steam:
„Curse of the Moon 2 brings classic 2D action and a dark, 8-bit aesthetic together with modern playability. The multiple-scenario structure of the previous title returns with an epic new story supervised by IGA (Koji Igarashi) himself.
Players take control of Zangetsu, a swordsman from the far east who bears a deep grudge against demonkind and the alchemists who summoned them. Zangetsu must battle his way to the demonic stronghold, but he doesn’t have to do it alone! Zangetsu can ally himself with a brand new cast of characters he meets along the way and add them to the playable roster.
Three brand-new playable characters appear in Curse of the Moon 2, including the exorcist Dominique. All characters from the original Curse of the Moon game are playable, too! Each new character adds a variety of gameplay options, abilities, and ways to complete the games’ many stages.
Players can also create demon-hunting duos in 2-player local co-op, available for the first time in the series! Work together with a friend, mix and match the strengths of two different characters, and conquer stages in tons of new and exciting ways.”
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 arrives on July 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on Steam with a friendly $ 14.99 price tag.
