Coming 2019

Bloodstained is an exploration-focused, side-scrolling platformer featuring RPG and crafting elements. Koji Igarashi, the namesake of “Igavania”-style games, is leading the project, with Michiru Yamane composing the music and DICO leading the development. The game will be developed for Steam (PC/Mac/Linux), XBOX One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. You are Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist’s curse which slowly crystallizes your skin. In order to save yourself, and indeed, all of humanity, you must battle your way through a demon-filled castle summoned by Gebel, your old friend whose body has become more crystal than flesh.
