Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Will Now Have Local Co-Op Multiplayer



Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Koji Igarashi’s spiritual successor to Castlevania, is sitting comfortably at over $1.5 million in Kickstarter contributions—well over its base goal of $500,000. Along the way, it’s checked off a bunch of stretch goals.


As of this report, Bloodstained will feature a second playable character, voice-acting by David Hayter (known for the voice of Metal Gear Solid’s Solid Snake and Big Boss), the implementation of local co-op multiplayer, and a new boss.


Other stretch goals that it’s in the process of reaching include a Speed Run Mode and a Boss Rush mode. Igarashi and co. have hinted at a future stretch goal that will involve bringing the game to Nintendo platforms, but this hasn’t been revealed yet.


Bloodstained is in development for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
