Igarashi On His Most Memorable Boss Fights From Castlevania



Seeing its latest stretch goals reached, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is headed to the Wii U. Alongside that announcement, project lead Koji Igarashi has also shared another YouTube video in which he answers more fan questions with creepy music playing in the background.


The highlight of the Q&A this time around is Iga talking about his favourite or most memorable bosses from previous games he’s worked on. Igarashi mentions two, and you can read his quotes below, accompanied by a look at the bosses in question.


The Forgotten One from Castlevania: Lament of Innocence:



Iga: I’d have to say my most memorable boss is actually from a 3D title, the Forgotten One from Lament of Innocence. People were quite shocked at how disturbing it was. Even the rating got bumped up to Mature. That one was a doozy to get through, so I’ll never forget it.


Abaddon from Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow:



Iga: As far as gameplay goes, Abaddon from Dawn of Sorrow attacks with a hoard of locusts. You can’t defeat the locusts, you just have to dodge there. But there is one special way to eliminate them. It really provided a great deal of scope to the gameplay, and it was a lot of fun.


Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is in development for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U.
