Here’s a quick look at Bloodless:

In a recent interview with Famitsu, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night creator Koji Igarashi reiterated interest in turning the IP into a series. However, he stressed the importance of wanting to “take my time and do things right.”

Igarashi also spoke about interest in working on something else entirely. While he didn’t give anything away regarding what sort of game ideas he could pursue, he’d want to develop “something a little more challenging if I were to create something brand new.”

Here’s our full translation of the interview excerpt:

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been a success having sold over one million copies as a brand new IP. Although we don’t have a breakdown of sales by platform, there’s no question that the Switch version largely contributed to that number.

In a recent interview with Famitsu, creator Koji Igarashi revealed that Bloodstained had the biggest response on Switch. It also sold “well above our expectations” even though it came out on the console a week after other systems.

Here’s our translation of the excerpt between Famitsu and Igarashi:

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night received its Boss Revenge and Chroma Wheel update on most platforms in July, but it turns out that Switch owners have been forced to wait. The team has now provided an update, stating that the patch should go live on Nintendo’s console “later this month.”

Boss Rush lets players take control of several villains while battling a series of heroes. Chroma Wheel allows for more customization. You can read more about the new Bloodstaind update here.
