Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 screnshot of Hachi - the corgi in a mech suit

[Update #2]: Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 has just arrived with its mech-piloting Corgi!

[Update]: Good news! Curse of the Moon 2 will also bring with it all of the original characters, and will have two-player co-op!

The original Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon was released as a part of the Kickstarter stretch goals for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. However, while Curse of the Moon may have started off as a small spin-off game, it ended up being a genuinely good homage to the oldschool Castlevania games!

With that in mind, I am very happy to say that a brand new sequel is now in the works. Not only will Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 expand upon its predecessor both in terms of content and complexity, but it will also add a couple of new characters to mess around with: Dominique the healer, Robert the gunslinger, and most importantly of all, Hachi - a corgi piloting a mech suit!

If that last part sounds way too ridiculous to be true, allow me to share with you the recently posted announcement trailer. Have a gander, it's certainly... something!

No release date has been announced just yet, but what I can say is that Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 will be launching on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch. Once more information becomes available I'll make sure to let you know, but until then you can keep an eye on Curse of the Moon 2 over at the official website.
