Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night – Disponibile da oggi, in arrivo anche Shovel Knight

Koji Igarashi è felice di annunciare che da oggi Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night è finalmente disponibile su PC, PlayStation 4 e Xbox One.

La versione Nintendo Switch del gioco sviluppato da ArtPlay, e finanziato tramite Kickstarter, sarà accessibile solo tra una settimana (28 giuno) con Igarashi che ha svelato anche i contenuti aggiuntivi in arrivo successivamente tra cui Shovel Knight come personaggio giocabile:

Conceived by the legendary Koji Igarashi, the renowned godfather of the beloved Igavania genre, and featuring music by Mirichu Yamane (Castlevania: Symphony of the Night) and Ippo Yamada (Resident Evil), Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is a modern, side-scrolling action RPG experience that will satisfy long-time fans of Iga’s previous work, as well as entice players new to his legacy. Everything in Bloodstained is rendered in loving 3D detail on a 2D side-scrolling environment that evolves as players progress through the biggest game map of his career, giving them more to explore and enjoy.

Set in 18th century England, where a paranormal force has summoned a demon-infested castle, revealing crystal shards infused with tremendous magical power, players of Bloodstained take on the role of Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist curse which slowly crystallizes her body, enabling her to use spells, weapons, special items, and abilities to tailor the game to their playstyle. To save humanity and herself, Miriam must fight through the castle while collecting, crafting, and unlocking a vast array of weapons, equipment and loot to defeat the summoner Gebel and the countless minions and bosses of hell that await.
