Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has received a number of updates and crossovers since it originally launched on the Nintendo Switch in 2019, and the development team has today announced another one.
This time around, it's collaborating with Journey - an indie adventure title, originally co-created by thatgamecompany and Santa Monica Studio. This update will be rolling out next week on August 23rd, and comes with a "brand-new crossover boss area".
This new section of the castle, known as The Tunnels, is inspired by Journey and features a Bloodstained twist. Once you've navigated through the cavernous maze, you'll have to battle the level's guardian. Defeat it and you'll unlock a special Journey-style item. Here's how to unlock this area:
"The entrance to The Tunnels will appear after you have freed Gebel and unlocked the Den of Behemoths. The room with the doorway will be marked on the castle map (no, it’s not IN the Den of Behemoths). Head to the highlighted area on the map and you’ll find the entrance inside."
This next update (V 1.4), will also include some bug fixes and game updates, including an update for the Nintendo Switch version which fixes a timestamp error. For the full rundown, see the latest blog update.
