Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon Delayed on Consoles; Currently Released on PC




Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon Delay

Good news and bad news, everyone. First of all, the developers of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon delayed the title. Earlier, the news hit that the European 3DS version and the worldwide Xbox One version would be delayed. However, the delay currently impacts the U.S. indefinitely for your console of choice. On the official Kickstarter page, Koji Igarashi had this to say.

The spin-off game of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, is here! This is the 8-bit mini-game stretch goal that we promised during our Kickstarter campaign. The demo of this game was actually playable at BitSummit in Kyoto, where I had a chance to watch people play. They really enjoyed it! 

This title is infused with nostalgic feeling. Download codes will be given to backers who backed over $28.

In regards to the distribution timing, Steam keys will be distributed on the same day as the release date, but other platforms will, unfortunately, be distributed at a later timing. We physically cannot resolve this issue and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

Please have fun with this retro side-story as you look forward to the main game! – IGA 

Now for the good news.

For backers of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, IGA and the rest of the team have you covered. If you backed Bloodstained, check your e-mail or head on over to the Kickstarter page to check your backer survey. Where you can find your codes, you should find a downloadable Steam key. This will allow you to access the full game for Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. Therefore, the game should be available for all PC owners. You can redeem this code until June 8th.

The other good news is that the game is good so far. It has that 8-bit retro feel of an NES game, but the clean, shiny polish of a modern-day title like Shovel Knight. It plays and controls well, and you get everything you expected from what it looked like. That includes four playable characters, each with their own abilities, and multiple subweapons. Similarly to Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, you can switch between each character and they can enter different areas. Moreover, some areas require abilities you can’t get from the first time you play. In addition to difficulty settings, it also encourages replays. Finally, you can check out more of our coverage for the game here.

Keep checking back with us as we deliver more info regarding Curse of the Moon. Be sure to check the Kickstarter page for more information and the survey backer page to claim your Steam key!
