I have been waiting for years for the release of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night since I love the Metroidvania (open world Castlevania games) games. However I was shocked to see this prequel game come out before the real game. It's an 8-Bit game that plays a lot like the classic 2D Castlevania games.
Your main character is Zangetsu. He uses a katana, which would remind many of Alucard's main weapon in Symphony of the Night.
But like Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, you can switch characters on the fly. The 2nd member of the team (ironically the star of the upcoming Ritual of the Night) is Miriam. Her main weapon is a whip, much like the Belmont clan of the Castlevania games.
I like it so far, it's fun but not terrible tough so far. Luckily the game moves much faster and easier to use the NES Castlevanias which were mainly held back due to the lack of power on the NES system.
