Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is getting a sequel

Bloodbath.

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, the 8-bit styled action game from Inti Creates that acted as a curtain raiser for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, is getting a sequel 'soon'.

The announcement was made at this afternoon's NGPX showcase, and presented by none other than Koji Igarashi himself. Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 follows on in a similar style from the original, presenting action with more than a hint of Castlevania 3 to it all, and this time out it boasts three new playable characters and a more expansive campaign.
