Inti Creates and game producer Koji Igarashi just announced that Bloodstained fans have a new title to look forward to playing. A world premiere trailer debuted on YouTube today announcing a sequel to the popular 8-bit spinoff, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. In the clip, Igarashi introduces the trailer and a few key details about the new game’s characters and storyline:
The game’s official website provides more details on the upcoming project:
“Curse of the Moon 2 brings classic 2D action and a dark, 8-bit aesthetic together with modern playability. The multiple-scenario structure of the previous title returns with an epic new story supervised by IGA (Koji Igarashi) himself.
Players take control of Zangetsu, a swordsman from the far east who bears a deep grudge against demonkind and the alchemists who summoned them. Zangetsu must battle his way to the demonic stronghold, but he doesn’t have to do it alone! Zangetsu can ally himself with a brand new cast of characters he meets along the way and add them to the playable roster. Each new character adds a variety of gameplay options, abilities, and ways to complete the game’s many stages.”
There is no official release date for Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2, but the trailer notes that it will be “coming soon.” The game will be available on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Steam (PC). At this time, the game will be available on digital format only. Limited Run Games released a physical edition of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon for the Nintendo Switch, and the game is now out of print and it commands a high value in the collector’s market.
