Bloodstained early, off-screen gameplay

A "very early" build of the Kickstarter-funded game.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Koji Igarashi and Inti Creates have shared the first off-screen, “very early” gameplay footage of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night via the game’s latest development update.

The video update sees Igarashi play-testing an early build of the game, while making suggestions to Inti Creates’ Yuji Natsume about what he likes and what needs to be changed (like Miriam’s slow walking animation).

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is planned for release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PC, and PS Vita in March 2017. Its Kickstarter has amassed $3.7 million in funding and closes in four days.
