Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

A new Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night video was released this week that offers fans a peek inside the orchestrated recording sessions. Michiru Yamane and other composers have also spoken about the music creation process. Watch the video below.

The latest Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Kickstarter update has arrived, and fans are being treated to a new look at the game’s crafting system. A video clip released today can be viewed below.

Bloodstained’s crafting system lets you combine items to make yourself new items and equipment. The team is also teasing other things that can be created, but we’ll be hearing about that later. Crafting can be done by visiting Johannes, an alchemist friendly to Miriam.


At SXSW 2018 in March, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will be hosting a special panel. The game’s official Twitter account says attendees can anticipate “new info, features and news to be revealed”.

We also have this overview of the panel that offers a few more details:

The Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Kickstarter posted its latest news update today. Fans are treated to some brand new content not previously shown.

First, here’s a look at a new stage inspired by a traditional Japanese motif:

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has its own way of letting you personalize the game. In a new Kickstarter update, backers are shown that weapons, accessories, and scarves all change Miriam’s appearance.

You can see this in action below. The video features a fire sword, a two-handed axe, a maid headband, and more. It’s even possible to change hairstyles and scarves.

A new update was posted to the Bloodstained Kickstarter page today. It features a new video, music, and more.

Today’s video gives us a look at two things in particular. The Bloodstained team shows off the courtyard as well as a battle with Zangetsu, a samurai character who “resents anyone and anything tainted by demonic power.”

You can also listen to some music on Kickstarter here. Noisycroak is working with Michiru Yamane to complete the soundtrack.

A new Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night development update has been published on the official Kickstarter page. In a post primarily handled by creator Koji Igarashi, the Japanese voice cast is introduced.

Voice actors for eight different characters are now known. Another actor is also named, but the character he plays is currently a secret. We’ll be hearing about him “soon”.

Here’s the full lowdown from Igarashi:

Inti Creates was originally involved with the primary development of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. That’s not the case any longer, however.

The Bloodstained confirmed on the game’s forums that Inti Creates left the main project last E3, though they’re still on board for the “prequel mini-game.” DICO has since taken over Inti Create’s role. ArtPlay is also still the main developer.

Here’s the update on Inti Creates and the overall development team:

Despite what we heard last year, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night may not opt for a staggered content model. If this is something the team decides to pursue, some features and content may come after the game’s launch.

That seemed like the plan back in 2016. However, creator Koji Igarashi has now said that a definitive decision has not been made. It’s something that’s being considered, and though the approach has certain benefits, “it’s something we’ll have to discuss later.”

Igarashi told Apptrigger:

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was shown off during Twitch’s E3 2017 live stream a short while ago. Take a look at the recording below.
