Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been updated on Switch to version 1.10. Zangetsu has been added as a playable character, and the new Randomizer mode can be accessed.

Here’s a full rundown of both features:

To promote the arrival of Zengetsu in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, 505 Games and ArtPlay have readied a new trailer. We’ve attached it below.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is getting its Zangetsu and Randomizer update in late May/early June. We have plenty of information as to what’s in store here.

505 Games and ArtPlay are still going strong with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. It was previously announced that an update is planned that’ll include new playable character Zangetsu and a “Randomizer” mode. Today, it was confirmed that this will be made available on Switch between late May and early June.

Here’s a full overview of both features:

The team behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has announced that its promised “Roguelike” mode has been scrapped. This had been a part of the original Kickstarter campaign as a stretch goal, but “the code that was created early in the game’s development is not currently compatible with this type of gameplay”.

While that’s unfortunate news for those that were looking forward to it, “Roguelike” will now be replaced with a new “Randomizer” mode. Here are the full details on that:

A new update has gone live for the Switch version of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Version 1.04 includes improved loading times between rooms, better stability, and more.

Below is the full update overview from publisher 505 Games:

Switch owners should soon be able to access a new patch for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Version 1.04 is planned for January, and will include all improvements from version 1.03.

Fans can also look forward to more content as well. The developers are working on Zangetsu and two new modes – one of which is Boss Revenge. There are also more modes and an additional playable character on the way. 505 Games and ArtPlay say they intend to “have a regular cadence of content once all the platforms are on the same level of content.” More news will be shared in 2020.
