Bloodstained Is Getting A Sequel

Earlier this month, it was revealed by 505 Games that its parent company Digital Bros will have a “second version” of Bloodstained “in development” on its quarterly financial report. This description is a bit vague and could allude to more updates of the 2019 Metroidvania title made by creator Koji Igarashi.

Welp, we just got confirmation that this “second version” is in fact a full-fledged sequel to Bloodstained (via Twitter).

“Regarding recent reports, @505_Games and @ArtplayEN are in very early planning stages for a #Bloodstained sequel. However, current development resources are focused on completing Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night’s upcoming content. We have a lot planned for you.”

Apart from that announcement, there’s no other information: no release date, no gameplay, no nothing. But yeah, a Bloodstained 2 is in the works. That should be enough to get Metroidvania fans like me excited. Check out our review of the first game to see what the fuss is about.
