Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 'emergency patch' Version 1.3.1 already submitted, fixes auto-save issue

A patch for a patch

Even though Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 was just updated to Version 1.3.0 a few hours ago, there's already another patch in the pipeline. This is version 1.3.1, and is an emergency patch that fixes up an issue introduced in Version 1.3.0. Check out the notes for this update below.

An issue was discovered, and an emergency fix patch (Ver. 1.3.1) has been submitted to all platforms and is already live on PlayStation 4 and Steam, with other platforms to follow when they are ready to distribute. Here are the issues that Ver. 1.3.1 addresses:

● Ver. 1.3.1 (Updated July 30, 2020)※ As of July 30, 2020 this update is only live on PlayStation 4 and Steam

・ An issue that was causing the game to not auto-save after exiting BOSS RUSH Mode has been fixed.
・ An issue that was causing the game to sometimes not copy over difficulty settings when save data was copied on the FILE SELECT screen has been fixed

Until the Ver. 1.3.1 patch is live, users on platforms still playing on Ver 1.3.0 can implement a work-around to the first issue by starting BOSS RUSH mode once more from the Title Screen after exiting BOSS RUSH once. This will trigger the game to auto-save.

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 now available

Whipping you into shape

Koji Igarashi and Inti Creates are back with more retro sword-and-whip action!

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.

Three brand-new playable characters appear in Curse of the Moon 2, including the exorcist Dominique. All characters from the original Curse of the Moon game are playable, too! Each new character adds a variety of gameplay options, abilities, and ways to complete the games' many stages.

Players can also create demon hunting duos in 2-player local co-op, available for the first time in the series! Work together with a friend, mix and match the strengths of two different characters, and conquer stages in tons of new and exciting ways.
