Inti Creates reveals 8-bit Castlevania-a-like Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon
Brilliant developer Inti Creates has revealed Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, an 8-bit Castlevania-inspired spin-off of the upcoming Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. It’s out this month on Switch, 3DS, PS4, Vita, Xbox One, and PC.
Inti Creates is an absolute master when it comes to authentically retro-styled action platformers. The team, founded by ten ex-Capcom employees over 20 years ago, already has an impressive back catalogue, including the likes of Mega Man Zero and ZX, Blaster Master Zero, and Mighty Gunvolt Burst. That in itself is enough of a reason to get excited about the prospect of a classic Castlevania-inspired Inti Creates game.
What makes Curse of the Night more notable, however, is that it’s a spin-off of the upcoming Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night – famed Castlevania designer Koji Igarashi’s glossily modern spiritual successor to Konami’s beloved gothic series, due out later this year. Curse’s arrival isn’t entirely unexpected, however; Ritual’s massively successful Kickstarter promised an 8-bit game as a stretch goal, and this is that project.
