Are you exhausted of waiting for former Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi's return to Metroidvania form in the crowdfunded Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night?

Developer and publisher Inti Creates has announced Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, a 8-bit spin-off of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

This coming in before the actual main release of BloodStained: Ritual of the Night, Tthis one is going back to it's predecessors and will be in 8-Bit.

In the case of sponsors who contributed that amount or higher, Inti Creates will send the download codes to receive their digital copy of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon at no extra cost. Every time a player conquers a boss in the game, they will run into another character - Gebel, Miriam, and Alfred - who can join you, Zangetsu, on your journey.

Featuring aesthetics ripped straight out of the NES era, Curse of the Moon stars Zangetsu, a sword-wielding demon killer. The single-player title will release digitally on May 24 for $9.99 on PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and Steam. Veteran and Casual difficulties will also be included along with the standard difficulty.

When Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night hit Kickstarter, it immediately became one of the biggest video games ever funded on the platform. Igarashi added that this upcoming spin-off game was being developed by Inti Creates, a Japanese developer that collaborated with the Bloodstained developers on the Kickstarter.

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 also may effect the ending.
