Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's post-launch DLC detailed, mention of 'online connection required' causes concern

Free DLC incoming, and online worries surface

The official website for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has provided a very concise rundown of what DLC people can expect for the game post launch. Check out the full info below.

Free Updates After Launch

- Speedrun Mode
- Pure Miriam Outfit
- Boss Rush Mode
- Online & local Co-op and Vs. Mode
- Roguelike Mode
- 2 Extra Playable Characters
- Chaos Mode
- Classic Mode
- Boss Revenge Mode

Following that, some fans have spotted a mention on the eShop that has caused worry. The eShop listing mentions that an internet connection is required, leading some to believe that this game has some sort of always-online DRM. It seems this might be the case of non-specific wording though, as the Nintendo.com listing states, " Internet access required for online features." In other words, it's more likely that online is needed for online modes, rather than a constant connection at all times for the game in general.


Okay then nice and all, now get that switch version right. It's disapointing enough that it will be only 30fps.
