Retro Castlevania Inspired Prequel For Bloodstained Announced, Arrives This Month

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is a beautiful 80s throwback releasing this month

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon launches on Switch and 3DS on May 24

Basically, it's a nostalgic 8-bit Igavania that fans of the Castlevania series will probably enjoy, especially considering that Konami seems to be uninterested in releasing anything that isn't on mobile, lately.

Koji Igarashi, a Japanese developer who is well-known for his work on the Castlevania series and is now developing Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, talked about the upcoming spin-off in an official trailer. Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon has been inspired by a legendary 2D action games from the 80s. It features low-fidelity sprites and world art. Koji Igarashi, the director of the original game, was commissioned to make the announcement and confirmed that this title will serve as a prequel to Ritual of the Night and will be available on May 24 for PS4, Switch, Xbox One, 3DS, PS Vita and PC for $ 9.99 Dollars, which will be paid by those who have not sponsored the project on Kickstarter or have made it below $28 USD.

This game is an obvious throwback to the early Castlevania games, and was actually developed thanks to a stretch goal from Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's Kickstarter campaign.

Igarashi is working with developer Inti Creates on Curse of the Moon, which is a spinoff of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, which is a modern spiritual successor to the Symphony of the Night. Here is some info on how you can get it for free via FanGamer. 6, Inti Creates announced a new Bloodstained game. It is the studio responsible for the faux-8-bit Mighty Gunvolt companion game to the Azure Striker Gunvolt games.

The indie studio will be releasing a spin-off title called Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon as announced at the BitSummit indie games show in Kyoto.
