A video showcasing the first stage of Bloodstained has been released. The video shows Miriam on a ship, the Galleon Minerva, headed toward the castle.
The short clip also features a new music track by Michiru Yamane!
A full playable demo will be on show at E3, with all $60+ backers getting their hands on the same sampler after the show.
"This E3 preview is a simple playable demo and tutorial of this Minerva stage," explains the Kickstarter update. "The lesser demons we've introduced in the last update (Morte, Seama, and Dullahammer) will appear, and the magi-crystals players will obtain from enemies, also known as 'Shards,' will also be included.
The demo will only be available on Windows, distributed through Steam.
It's also worth noting that the demo is not the same as the beta, which is still planned to come later to all $60 or more backers who ordered a Steam or DRM-free PC version of the game.
There's still time to pledge to get hold of the demo. More info can be found here.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is a gothic, exploration-focused action platformer. You are Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist curse which slowly crystallizes your skin and who must battle your way through a demon-filled castle.
The game was funded to the tune of more than $5.5 million one year ago. A March release date is being targeted.
