Story

Many years have passed since the defeat of Count Dracula, and humanity has entered an age of peaceful prosperity.

Until one day, Genya Arikado receives a mysterious letter.

“The Grimoires have awoken, and the world is being consumed by darkness. I implore you, please come to our aid!”

Wary of what may be lying in wait before him, Genya Arikado ventures forth into the moonlit night.

Characters

The core narrative is centered around Genya Arikado. Within the narrative, you will be able to play as, and alongside many iconic characters across the Castlevania series.

  • Genya Arikado – A dignified figure working in the shadows of the Japanese government. Few are aware of his existence, or his role as one of the few remaining safeguards preventing the resurrection of Dracula. He is a man with astonishingly beautiful features, but a cold temperament that few can overcome.
  • And more… including Alucard, Simon, Charlotte, Shanoa, and Maria.

Fuck Konami and fuck Capcom.

Mega Man X and Castlevania should not be reduced to this mobile shit.

When I saw the title I got extremely excited. Then as I started to watch the trailer with every second I kept getting a sinking feeling. And then I read the press release and the fear came true. IT'S A MOBILE GAME!

F YOU KONAMI! A SINCERE F YOU TO YOU TOO!

So glad we've got Bloodstained. I hope IGA makes a franchise out of it not only to fill the void of Castlevania, but to give the middle finger to Konami at this point for holding a beloved franchise like this hostage to pachinko and mobile games.

hopes quickly rose and then Konami crushed them! This would have been great on Switch. The only logical reason for them doing this is, and this is just a thought, is marketing sees the mobile presence in Japan. It's so dumb.

Maybe Konami will someday shove its head so far up its own ass that it will end up where it started. One can dream.

Despite it looking average, hopefully it'll be on consoles someday.
