Contest: Round out your GOTY list with a copy of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night


PS4 and Xbox One on offer

We’ve got some copies of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night up for grabs in today’s contest!

Have all of you good little gamer boys and gamer girls been keeping up with the hottest games this year? It’s time to slap together those GOTY lists, after all! I’m way, way behind on all of the games this year. If you’re anything like me, you’re going to love the next couple of days, as we’ve got keys for some of the hottest GOTY contenders to get you all caught up.

Today, we’re featuring Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Years in the making, IGA’s callback to the classic Castlevania 8-and-16-bit (and 32-bit, I guess) titles finally hit shelves this year, and to much aplomb. If you missed it the first time around (like me lol) then now’s your chance to check it out for yourself!

What a wild ride. IGA spent years getting this thing funded, and produced. Through Kickstarter, then publishing, then swapping out dev teams, it’s pretty amazing that this one released at all, let alone it being actually super awesome. In classic Castlevania fashion, you’ll play as a be-whipped hero who sidescrolls their way through a labyrinthine castle, filling out parts of the map, taking out monsters, and doing it all over again once you get new abilities. This thing isn’t just a love letter to the genre — it is the genre.

Check out these game features:

  • Biggest Igavania EVER
  • Tons of weapons, spells, & equipment
  • Craft, Cook, & Upgrade
  • Full cosmetic customization
  • Celebrity voice actors (David Hayter!)
  • Orchestra soundtrack by Michiru Yamane
  • Rich story with alternate endings
  • New Game Plus
  • Nightmare Difficulty
  • 8-bit Level
