But it's in the "very early planning stages" of the process, so we've probably got a bit of a wait ahead as the team behind the spiritual successor to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is still working on bringing new stuff to the current game.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night had something of a journey too, as several delays meant that in the end the final game was able to live up to its initial promise. As per our review, it's "a slow burn that turns into the warmest of genre embraces", and "its dedication to and the evolution of the formula that people fell in love with across several Castlevania games is commendable".

So yeah, we're keen to see a sequel. The good thing is, the first game's delays were mostly related to the look and feel and the team coming to terms with a modern 3D engine. With that stuff sorted, and subsequent patches for the game bringing the console versions up to par with the PC release, development on the sequel should be a smooth(er) process.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night more than lived up to its Castlevania: Symphony of the Night spiritual successor promise when it released back in 2019. With veteran designer Koji Igarashi at the helm it proved that it was a style of game that could still pull off some exciting new things. That said today's 'Classic Mode' update is a look at the past, in a new retro-inspired mode featuring the classic Castlevania chain-whip as the weapon of choice.

As per above it's a brand-new mode with five levels to play through and plenty of retro touches. Even though it still features the modern 3D graphics of Bloodstained, the presentation and movement and action is pure classic Castlevania. This is a free update to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, including for those playing on Xbox Game Pass.
