Official Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Discussion Thread
Can’t compare it to Hollow Knight cause the engine and combat is different but damn dude.


Soundtrack is out of this world. Very fun to play. Just like old Castlevania stuff except way better and not near as dull. Definitely at or better than Symphony so far. And I can say that because I 100% Symphony 2 months ago.

It was actually the global #1 seller on steam earlier today. But of course their dumbass delayed their best selling platform until a week after for “polish.”


ETA: Edited the title to keep this a spoiler free thread until a week later for the late crowd. I’d hate for them to get spoiled like I have been in some previous games. :(

Looks like the Switch release is next week. All platform versions should be the same, from what I'm reading.

The big question will be have they resolved the input lag issues on the Switch that were lamented at PAX East?

I knew someone was gonna say that yes I beat everything TWICE. Took that necessary 30+ minutes to get the crissaegrim.


It is out in every platform except the Switch. The North American PS4 CODES aren’t available at the moment. So I had to head off to a game shop :p For some people it’s been crashing a decent bit but idk if that’s post day 1 update or not.

Should've just used the Shield Rod + Alucard (not Alucart) Shield instead.

I want to play it now, but if there are some stability issues, I can wait a week or so. I just need the Switch version to be as zippy as the others.

Switch might end up being the best version

Igarashi Explains Bloodstained's poor performance on Switch at PAX

quote:

"Due to the way the consoles were kept inside closed containers for the demo, there ended up being a significant overheating issue. This caused the game to drop frames and not run as smoothly as we would have liked," Igarashi writes. "That same build (as well as subsequent ones) is much more stable when the console isn't overheated."

How will Bloodstained run on the Switch when it finally ships later this year, then? The launch stats are currently set at 720p (fixed) and 30 FPS in handheld mode, and 720p (dynamic) and 30 FPS in docked mode. Docked mode will also treat you to "additional effects / visuals."

Some backers in the comments are disappointed Bloodstained Switch is launching at 30 FPS. I also played a PC build of Bloodstained that seemed to run at a steady 60 FPS, so I'm likewise a bit let down. That said, "launch stats" indicate there's hope we'll see a bump up to 60 FPS (or somewhere close to that) on the Switch sometime down the line.

re: Official Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Discussion Thread
I didn’t say it to brag. Y’all don’t know the back story to those goons at the 505 California office.

The February update trailer was dropped in the Nintendo direct that they didn’t tell us about and we were all blown away and the guy who goes by the alias Angel said that all the monthly updates were gonna be positive from now on.

Well, the next 3 updates after that we’re:

1. Release date is in summer 2019....BUT Switch version runs at 720p 30fps LOCKED. And that’s after that entire week of supposed polishing of the game.
2. Release date is June 18th!.......for every platform except the switch version. Y’all gotta wait a week for some dumb reason.
3. (They didn’t say this publicly but I’ll just go ahead and say it for them) We’re a broke arse independent publisher so we don’t have the funds or man power to actually put everything in the base game and actually let the devs put out a complete game! So we’ll release 13 patches worth of DLC post launch.





505 and Konami are seriously right up there with each other as far as publishing goes.

re: Official Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Discussion Thread
So, am I correct in assuming on all other non-Switch platforms, the game is running at 1080p/60 fps?
