While watching the New Game+ Expo this morning, I was delighted to see the face of Koji Igarashi appear on screen. He was there on behalf of ArtPlay and Inti Creates to show off something unexpected. Apparently the original Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon exceeded expectations, and thus we’re now getting Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2! Set in the same new retro style as the first game, Curse of the Moon 2 brings a different group of demon hunters together, including Zangetsu, Dominique, Robert and Hachi, a corgi in a mecha suit. Yes, that last one took me by surprise as well.

I am happy to say that Curse of the Moon 2 is looking fantastic already, at least according to the world premiere trailer. It’s slated to come to PC and all current consoles, and all we know is it’s coming soon. I hope that means in 2020 and not 2021. I still had more fun with the original Curse of the Moon than I did the main Bloodstained game, so here’s hoping this sequel continues the trend of excellence I’ve come to expect from these fine developers. Either way, fans of Castlevania styled games and retro in general have a lot to be excited about this morning. If you don’t believe me, just watch the trailer below.
