There seems to be no end to the rituals of the night. And of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night updates, as another one has just gone live, introducing new content to the excellent platform game created by the man behind the Castlevania series.
The 1.20 update introduces Classic Mode, a new play mode that will make the game feel and play like the first few entries in the Castlevania series.
Announced during Bloodstained’s Kickstarter campaign, Classic Mode sends Miriam into an 8-bit aesthetic world armed only with a Sword-whip. Miriam must once again enter the demonic castle to confront Gebel and survive five harrowing stages and five sub-bosses that stand in her way. Upon finishing Classic Mode, players are graded on time, score and number of deaths across three difficulty modes – be sure to efficiently use Miriam’s special moves including slide, backstep and backflip. Users can activate Classic Mode from the EXTRA MODES option on the main menu screen.
The new update also introduces new Kingdom Two Crowns crossover content in the form of a new area to explore. This area is completely optional, as its completion doesn’t count toward 100% completion.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is now available on Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
