Koji Igarashi's "Bloodstained" Goes 8-Bit in Spinoff Game

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

It became one of the top selling games of the company.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is an upcoming 2D action platformer that was successfully Kickstarted by former Castlevania director Koji Igarashi all the way back in 2015.

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon applies the retro feel experienced in the classic Castlevania games on the NES, featuring low fidelity sprites and world art.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is getting an old-school spin-off game ahead of its release later this year. However, the 505 Games global branding manager, Roberto Piraino, hopped into the Kickstarter comment section to explain why the retro spin-off from Inti Creates would not be available for GOG.com users, writing in a post that was published on May 11th, 2018... Players will be able to toggle between four characters on the fly: Zangetsu, a sword-wielding demon slayer, fearless whip-bearer Miriam, sly alchemist Alfred, and Gebel, a misanthrope who for some reason, has undergone crystal transplant surgery. Your choices in recruiting these adventurers will change the difficulty of the game and also may effect the ending. In Curse of the Moon's launch trailer, producer Koji Igarashi said that backers who pledged a particular amount should already have access to codes, which can be retrieved via the official home page or a private Kickstarter update.

Inti Creates has announced via BitSummit that they are releasing an 8-bit Bloodstained game called Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon.

Fans are obviously not happy about this turn of events, and have been expressing their displeasure on the comment threads, forum boards, and backer sections for Bloodstained, but so far it doesn't sound like Artplay or Inti Creates will be budging.
