The developers of Bloodstained Ritual of the Night have published a DLC entitled “Iga’s Back Pack” initially available for free only for Kickstarter backers and now regularly on sale for 9.99 euros.
This package will give access to the Swordwhip weapon and to an unpublished boss, namely Koji Igarashi in person. Iga’s Back Pack is now available on Nintendo eShop and will soon arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
The early launch on the hybrid console could be linked to Igarashi’s willingness to apologize for the technical problems of Bloodstained on Switch, being resolved through a series of patches, bug fixes and updates designed to improve performance and fix all the main bugs encountered.
Bloodstained Ritual of the Night has been positively received by audiences and critics, defined by many as the spiritual heir of Castlevania Symphony of the Night.
