Defunct Games reviews Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, available now on PlayStation 4, Switch, PS Vita and PC (coming soon to Xbox One and Nintendo 3DS).
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is the Castlevania sequel I always wanted. Whether you’re a longtime fan of Konami’s horror franchise or just looking for a fun throwback game, this faux 8-bitter gets almost everything right. From the different characters to the unique stages to the incredible boss fights, this is a game that understands how to use nostalgia. Simon Belmont would be proud.
