Koji Igarashi and ArtPlay's Metroidvania Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has sold over a million copies. In order to celebrate the milestone, Bloodstained is getting a raft of new content throughout the rest of the year, all of which will be free to players who own the game, laid out in the new Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Roadmap.

First up, on June 23rd, you're getting a new game mode and a customization feature. Boss Revenge Mode was the final stretch goal for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, only to be implemented if the game passed $5.5 million funding. In Boss Revenge Mode, you'll enter a single room in the game and face off against four of its bosses in quick succession. The goal will be to get the best clear time possible. Boss Revenge Mode won't be coming to the Switch until July.

Also on June 23rd, the Chroma Wheel is being added to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Todd the Barber will have a host of new customization options available including new color palette options for hair, clothing, and skin. 505 and ArtPlay are adding a true color selector and the ability to change existing color presets. Much like the Boss Revenge mode, the Chroma Wheel won't be available to you if you're a Switch player until next month.

Along with news of these two free features, ArtPlay also unveiled Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's 2020 roadmap. The next updates after the June ones you'll see are Chaos Mode and Vs. Mode. The former is a special boss rush mode with randomized item drops, while the latter pits two players against one another. Later in the year, Bloodstained is also getting "special crossover content", as well as a Classic Mode that emulates old-school stage-by-stage Castlevania experiences. Finally, in Q4, there's more crossover content coming, along with the final playable character of the game. It's an exciting time to be an Iga fan. You can grab Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night right now on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
