Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Receives Free DLC Update That Launches Today

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's new update offers players a brand new classic mode alongside an unexpected crossover.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been out for nearly two years now but producer Koji Igarashi and his development team at ArtPlay aren't done yet. The anticipated Bloodstained Classic Mode DLC update has dropped today for free, and it comes with two brand new modes for fans to enjoy.

The biggest addition is undeniably neat Classic Mode, which offers a host of new stages, sub-bosses, and difficulty options to choose from. Better yet, this mode also features a retro-inspired 8-bit aesthetic, one that really drives home it's Castlevania influences. 

The other option is admittedly more surprising. Called Kingdom Crossover, it's a collaborative effort between publishers 505 Games and Raw Fury, bringing the latter's Kingdom: Two Crowns into Bloodstained.

This mode features a brand new area and boss, incorporating the more modern visual approach that Kingdom offers in comparison to Classic Mode. 

Available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch, this free DLC update sadly skips mobile platforms, though Ritual of the Night did just release for iOS and Android back in December. Stay tuned for more on the Bloodstained franchise, as well as other Igarashi projects.
