Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night sequel in development​

Further details not announced.


A sequel to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is currently in development, according to publisher 505 Games.

In its fiscal year 2020 / 2021 Q3 results presentation, the publisher lists the following notes for the Metroidvania game:

  • Latest creation of Koji Igarashi, the former series producer of the Castelvania franchise.
  • Worldwide publishing rights on PC and all console formats.
  • High Metacritic score (average 81).
  • €30.2 million life-to-date revenues—more than one million copies sold.
  • Expected lifetime revenues of at least €30 million.
  • Second version in development.

It should be noted that while “second version” is an unusual term for a sequel, it is also used for the Ghostrunner section of the presentation, which already has an announced sequel.

Apparently, the best 16-bit, 2D scrolling beat 'em up for the Genesis ever finally released 8 years later and after much controversy. And it seems to deliver. The cheapest version is $160.
