Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night gets an 'Accolades' trailer

The reviews are in!

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is now available, but some people are still are still on the fence. If you're one of those people, perhaps the above accolades trailer will convince you. See what critics from around the world have to say!


I was suprised at how much I liked playing this game, although it still has the typical problems the kickstarter indie games tend to have

I'm also quite surprised how I couldn't stop playing until I completed it pretty much.

Igarashi knows his formula to a tee. There are issues and blemishes all around. Inconsistent art direction and unambitious narrative (don't mean it needs to be complex, but didn't got me invested).

If anything I hope the idea evolves in a sequel, since I can't tell if they'll stick to the same characters or attempt to do another setting like in the Castlevania games.

I do think it still needs to mark it's own identity, I think it took a lot from Castlevania ("as promised") but I don't think it brought a lot of new ideas or mechanics. I'll even go as far that it shined a bit more in how it handled it's original ideas in Curse of the Moon but that's mainly because it did things the NES couldn't do.

So all in all, a very good take, and hopeful the idea grows into something it can call it's own.
