Bloodstained follows Miriam, an orphan who was scarred by an alchemist curse that gradually crystallizes her body. In order to save herself and the world, she must defeat the summoner Gebel and the minions of hell. The game was one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns ever, raising over $5.5 million. The title had been set for a 2017 release but was delayed due to development issues.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on June 18. The game will release on the Nintendo Switch a week later on June 25.
