Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night’s Classic Mode Makes Old-School Cool Again

Hello Bloodstained Fans!

New year, new free content! We are excited to bring Classic Mode and the new Kingdom: Two Crowns boss area to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night today!

Classic Mode

Classic Mode takes the gameplay of Bloodstained and dials it back a few decades to feel just like the classic platformers of your past. It’s a retro experience you won’t want to miss.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Classic Mode contains five levels of enemies and sub-bosses that lie between you and your ultimate goal: Gebel. Can you survive his devious traps? It will take all your old-school skills to make it to the end before you run out of lives.

This isn’t a casual sightseeing tour, you’ll face a horde of demons that stand in your way. To survive, you need your platforming skills and your trusty swordwhip. Additional shards can be picked up throughout the Classic Mode levels, each with its own special properties. You can only have one shard at a time, so you will have to change your tactics to suit your currently equipped ability.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

When you finish Classic Mode, you’ll be graded on time, score, and number of deaths across three difficulty modes.

Ready to play Classic Mode? Download the latest update today and choose Extra Mode from the main menu. Select the Classic Mode option and prepare yourself for a new (old) adventure. A completed playthrough of the core game is not required to play Classic Mode. Just jump in and go kick demon butt.

Kingdom Crossover

Our friends at Raw Fury included Bloodstained characters in Kingdom: Two Crowns and it’s time for us to return the favor!

Included with this free update is a new Boss Area created in the Kingdom: Two Crowns style. The area is hidden within the existing castle when playing as Miriam. To find it, you will need to first defeat Bathin and then locate and acquire the Crown of Creation. That crown will be your key to the new area…if you can find it. It will not appear on the map (and will not affect your map completion).

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

When you find the hidden area, you will have to defeat a Kingdom: Two Crowns boss. Should you succeed, you will be rewarded with a new Familiar Shard that can be used throughout the game.

We hope you enjoy Classic Mode and Kingdom Crossover. Thank you for being fans of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night!
