Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night take his Inspirations from Castlevania to another level with its new classic mode. You’ll only have a sword whip with which to fend off enemies as you guide Miriam through a castle, including five stages and sub-bosses, on her way to battle the big bad, Gebel. If you manage to complete Classic Mode, which has three difficulty levels, the game will score you based on your time, score, and death toll.
Classic Mode doesn’t adopt a full 8-bit aesthetic – the graphics shown in the trailer aren’t exactly pixelated. However, the interface certainly has an old-school vibe and the main weapon is clearly a version of the Whip Sword from Castlevania.
