More than 1 million copies sold That Igarashi was planning more titles in the future was no secret. In an interview with GameInformer, the creative assured that his intention was to continue building the brand with new products. According to the figures that appear in the 505 Games report, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has generated 30.2 million euros of profit, with a total of more than 1 million copies sold worldwide. The game has enjoyed post-launch support, so it has received new content and even a classic mode, which invites the player to relive the title from a more traditional point of view. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Android and iOS devices. Of course, it is also compatible with the next-generation machines, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series X and PS5. In February 2021, there was a very special crossover with Blasphemous, the Spanish Metroidvania developed by The Game Kitchen. The character of Bloodstained came to the video game of the penitentes, as well as other free news.
