Metroidvania game encores!

An army of demons, a haunted castle, and tightly wound combat await those brave enough to embrace the riveting role-playing action of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

How it plays: Wield elemental magic, whips, swords, and more as you fight through a massive labyrinthian lair. The castle slowly reveals itself as you unlock new powers and abilities that open up previously inaccessible areas.

Miriam may be small, but even dragons can’t handle the power she absorbs from fallen foes.

Why we love it: How do you like to fight? Experimenting with melee strikes and magic spells to find the most destructive combinations is great fun—and makes battling the game’s monstrous bosses (like Craftwork, a giant hand made of stained glass) truly thrilling.

Don’t miss: Bloodstained’s many rooms hold countless secrets. See an unexplored chunk of the map? Don’t skip it! You never know where a valuable trinket may be hiding.

Meet the creator: Bloodstained comes from Japanese gaming studio ArtPlay—helmed and cofounded by longtime Castlevania veteran Koji Igarashi.
