- Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon – 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.

Your choices in recruiting these adventurers will change the difficulty of the game, and may even affect the ending.
