Update: 01/04/22 – Adding in Google Stadia to the available formats.

Ready to embark on a new journey? One that mixes the gothic side-scrolling of Bloodstained: Ritual of the night with Ubisoft’s Child of Light? 505 Games’ latest crossover does just that.

Arriving as a free patch for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night today (you’re looking at roughly 9am PST) and becoming available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC, Google Stadia with Nintendo Switch version to follow, is the mixing, matching and crossing over of 505 Games and developer ArtPlay Koji Igarashi’s gothic side-scrolling action RPG Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, with Ubisoft’s Child of Light.

You’ll be aware that Miriam is no stranger to crossing paths with characters from other gaming series. She’s worn Shovel Knight armor into battle, ridden horseback in the dead lands of Kingdom Two Crowns, faced the horrors of Blasphemous, and guest-starred in Mighty Fight Federation. Now though she’s stepping out of the spotlight and letting someone else explore the Hellhold Castle: Aurora, the Child of Light herself.

After saving Lemuria on her own adventure, Aurora finds her journey home cut short when she awakens in a land full of demons. Her only hope of returning to her friends involves breaking Hellhold’s curse in a new storyline complete with poetic, rhyming cutscenes and dialogue inspired by Child of Light.

Should you wish to bear witness to Bloodstained’s events from a new perspective, once the free patch hits you’ll be able to choose Aurora from the Main Menu. The Child of Light has her own distinct moveset and abilities, making this romp through the castle feel fresh.

Expect to be able to call upon sacred powers to wield the devastating Light Ray and decimate foes with elemental damage, as well as evolve to meet new challenges and unlock new areas of the castle: gain wings to fly, become an adult to swim underwater, and don spike-proof armor to bypass deadly spikes.

Aurora’s loyal firefly friend Igniculus is here to assist her, healing, casting slow spells on opponents, and providing helpful passive boosts. Earn experience through combat to level up his abilities so these spells can come about more often and more effectively.

While Aurora does not have Miriam’s Shardbinder abilities, she can use shards to improve her own skills and access Familiar (passive) and Conjure (active) shards. Each represents one of her lost friends, all with their own powers to aid Aurora on her adventure. Upgrade abilities further with help from Miriam’s friend Johannes using alchemy and items she finds in chests and defeated enemies.

“I feel honored to be able to collaborate with such a prestigious title!” said Koji Igarashi, Artplay co-founder. “Lots of time, effort and coordination have gone into this and I hope you all enjoy Aurora’s active participation.”

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is available on all the usual formats – Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, PC, Stadia. Go and grab that patch today.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
