Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has hit a million copies sold, a pretty solid milestone for the Kickstarted title that had plenty of turbulent waves to navigate as it went through development.
Creator Koji Igarashi has revealed some big additions coming as we head through 2020.
In Q2, players will get boss revenge mode, where you can play as the bosses and smash heroes, as well as a ton of customization options in the form of the Chroma wheel.
Q3 brings a huge addition of features, it brings a VS mode allows you to battle other players, a boss rush mode for up to 2 players co-op, and “classic” mode. Classic mode is described as “It’s Bloodstained 80s-style as Miriam faces off against a series of sub-bosses laid out across five harrowing stages and three difficulty levels.”
Q4 has a big addition, this is in the form of a brand new, third playable character.
As noted in the Kickstarter update, timing is always subject to change with the variable state of the world and development.
