It has been revealed that Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, which launched on Switch last summer, has now surpassed one million sales across all platforms. The developers have taken the opportunity to thank fans and to share future plans for the game.
We'll kick things off with this message from the game's producer, Koji Igarashi. He says the game's success is down to the "passionate support" shown by its backers.
A celebratory piece of art has also been shared:
As for the future, here are the current plans for the game. The team notes that schedules are always subject to change, but this should give you a pretty accurate idea of what to expect over the next few months.
Boss Revenge Mode
Take control of one of four in-game bosses and use them to battle the heroes of Bloodstained!
The salon is back in business with more options than ever for character customization, including hair, clothing, and skin color. Switch up your look with a true color selector and eliminating pre-set options previously available.
Boss Revenge and Chroma Wheel will launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Tuesday, June 23rd, and Nintendo Switch in July.
VS Mode (Local/Online)
A tense survival mode where players compete by indirectly attacking each another.
Chaos Mode (Local/Online)
A specialized boss rush for 1 or 2 players. The mode includes randomized drops and special sub goals that will grant more equipment when completed. Collect the best, drop the rest as you build power to defeat all the bosses!
