Retro Castlevania Inspired Prequel For Bloodstained Announced, Arrives This Month

In the game, players will take on the role of demon slayer Zangetsu.

While Konami is making a Castlevania for mobile, one of the company's former producers is resurrecting the spirit of the Dracula-killing franchise in a new 8-bit-style game.

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is scheduled to release on May 24th for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One and PC as a digital download. Along the way, three fellow travelers will join Zangetsu, and each are playable characters. The ending of the game that players get is determined by players' choices when recruiting allies, so the game will warrant multiple playthroughs to see them all. Inti Creates has something special on the way later this month with the announcement of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, an 8-bit-style spinoff that allows for Castlevania III-esque character swapping and plenty of swords 'n whips action. Its initial $500,000 goal was quickly eclipsed, and by the time the campaign ended more than five million dollars above that, Koji Igarashi pledged and promised a bevy of stretch goals for the game.

Bomb attacks occur at three Surabaya churches
The U.S. blames JAD for a suicide bombing and gun attack in Jakarta in January 2016 that left four people dead and 25 injured. The Islamic State (IS) group claimed responsibility for that incident although police rejected its involvement.

Inti Creates has done similar retro versions of modern games before. Backers who supported us over a certain amount will receive a code for this game. It'll be available to those who donated $28 to the Kickstarter campaign for free.

"I've gotten the chance to play Curse of the Moon ahead of release". Like Ritual of the Night - which is expected to drop sometime in 2018 - it'll also be heading to Nintendo Switch, but 3DS loyalists can look forward to the retro charm too.
