Bloodstained 8-Bit Prequel Game Coming To Steam This Month (VIDEO)
While the big burst of independent games seeking funding through crowdsourcing has died down somewhat in recent years, many of the bigger projects funded through sites like Kickstarter are still finishing their development cycles. Before Shenmue III surpassed it with its level of success, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night broke the record for the most funded video game project on Kickstarter when its campaign completed. Its level of success met many stretch goals in the campaign, including a Bloodstained 8-Bit prequel game. Now, it has been announced that the spinoff retro-style game will be coming soon to digital storefronts.
Inti Creates, the developer creating the new Bloodstained 8-bit prequel, has released a video on their official YouTube channel announcing the new game’s release date. The spinoff, titled Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, harkens back to the classic 8-bit art style of the earliest Castlevania games. The video seen above opens with longtime Castlevania producer Iga introducing the game, and praises its charm and fun gameplay. Curse of the Moon features four playable characters: Zangetsu, Miriam, Alfred and Gebel. Each of these characters have different weapons and unique abilities that make them all suited for different fighting styles and obstacle-solving advantages.
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon will be available for download on May 24th for Nintendo 3DS, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox One and Steam. The game will sell for $9.99 on these platforms, but those who contributed more than $28 to the Bloodstained Kickstarter campaign will be sent a free code to download the game ahead of its launch. The game certainly looks like a loving tribute to the NES era of Castlevania, and will definitely get fans hyped for Ritual of the Night.
