Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Game Gets Smartphone Version
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
NetEase Games and ArtPlay announced on Monday that ArtPlay's Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night game is getting a smartphone version that will release "soon" worldwide. The game will support English, Japanese, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, and Korean languages. The game will release with a one-time purchase model.
NetEase Games is optimizing the UI screen and completely adapting the gameplay systems for smartphone devices.
The "action-adventure game in the gothic horror style" offers single-player, collaborative, and versus modes. The game's Kickstarter campaign page describes the story:
You are Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist curse which slowly crystallizes your skin. You must battle your way through a demon-filled castle summoned by Gebel, your old friend whose body has become more crystal than flesh.
The project met its initial goal of US$500,000 within four hours of launching in May 2015, and the campaign ended with more than US$5.5 million. The campaign and its stretch goals funded the release on Xbox One, PS4, PlayStation Vita, and PC. The campaign also funded a Wii U version, but the version was canceled in favor of a Nintendo Switch version. The staff also canceled plans for Mac and Linux support.
