During the New Game + expo, a surprise announcement by Inti Creates treated us to the next game in the Bloodstained series, logically titled as Curse of the Moon 2. To be clear, this is not Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night 2. Curse of the Moon served as the prelude to RotN and now it will be having a follow up.
No release date has been set, but you can check out the world premiere trailer below:
An overview of the upcoming follow up can be seen below, courtesy of Inti Creates (via Gematsu):
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. 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. Each new character adds a variety of gameplay options, abilities, and ways to complete the games’ many stages.
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 is set to release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
