As a huge fan of Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, I am incredibly excited to give Inti Creates and Koji Igarashi’s new game a try! It’s called Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon and is an 8-bit Castlevania-inspired action game coming to the Switch and 3DS on May 24, 2018 – just a few weeks from today! This was originally a stretch goal for the upcoming Bloodstained, and interestingly enough it is releasing before the main game. It’s looking like a really fun title and will run $9.99. Check out the video and press release:
Battle with swords and whips in this retro-style action game brought to you by game creator Koji Igarashi and Inti Creates!
Play as Zangetsu, a demon slayer bearing a deep grudge, who must travel through perilous lands to defeat a powerful demon lurking in a dark castle. Zangetsu will meet fellow travelers along the way, who can join your journey as playable characters.
Switching to these characters with their unique abilities will unlock new paths through the treacherous stages. Your choices in recruiting these adventurers will change the difficulty of the game, and may even affect the ending!
*Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is the 8-bit style game promised as a stretch goal of the 2015 Kickstarter campaign for “Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.”
