Zangetsu returns with three more powerful allies in the sequel
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was a fun game, but you know what was just as, if not even more fun? The NES-style prequel, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. The side-scrolling action game was a big hit with players, so Inti Creates and Koji Igarashi got together to plan a sequel pretty quickly. Now that sequel has been announced as Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 via the New Game+ Expo streaming event.
While there's no release date yet, Curse of the Moon 2 is currently in the works for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Zangetsu is back in this one, but his three playable companions are all new, from the spear-wielding exorcist Dominique to the gun-toting Robert and Hachi, a literal Welsh Corgi in a mech.
Check out all their distinct abilities, with an introduction from Igarashi himself, in the announcement trailer below.
