It was only announced a few days ago, but the sequel to Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon - predictably enough entitled Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 - will release on July 10, 2020.
The digital-only Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 will cost around $15 (a UK price has yet to be confirmed) and is coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It also features a two-player co-op mode.
"Classic-style Bloodstained action from Koji Igarashi and Inti Creates is coming July 10th, 2020 to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam with Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2!" states the YouTube video description (thanks, VG24/7). "In this new trailer, allies from the past are revealed with the inclusion of Zangetsu's allies from the original Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon - Miriam, Alfred, and Gebel.
"With the inclusion of a two-player co-op mode, friends can take the battle against demonkind to new heights. Combine the abilities of different characters and create a near limitless amount of new ways to traverse stages and defeat tough bosses."
As Martin explained earlier this week, 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 was announced at the NGPX showcase, presented by none other than Koji Igarashi himself.
