I think a sequel for Bloodstained could stand to borrow some concepts from Castlevania Portrait of Ruin(possibly my 2nd favorite under Symphony) and Bloodlines such as more varied environments that involve travelling to different areas. I think that idea could certainly work and fits neatly into the ending of Ritual of the Night "But there are still monsters in the world" where Miriam and Johannes could travel to areas across the world to try and finish them. That or more directly lifted from Portrait with another Demonic castle with portals leading to places all over the world(maybe these portals being the only way out of the castle due to some barrier around it). Just imagine all the places she could visit like Rome(imagining a very large Roman Pantheon indented pattern dome room with the central light, could look awesome with 3D effects), some Middle Eastern area like Egypt(cliche I know), Japan area, etc. I believe this would let the game's artists really go all out with the visual design, making them all look and feel distinctive which I felt Ritual of the Night lacked quite a bit if I'm being totally honest.

Normal places possessed by demonic forces could lead to a world of interesting scenarios, like urban cities submerged in swamps, jungles, glacials, ormaybe invoking other aspects of the Ars Goetia (and offshootingly, maybe working a bit like the Gunvolt series, where some villains take over a normal place as their playground/operation base).
I absolutely like, travelling from one place to another like this would be a dream.

Um, to be honest, a blend of how things were done in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin and Castlevania: Bloodlines/Castlevania: The New Generation/Vampire Killer (Mega Drive) would honestly be a better set up if we are going to go that route. However, with that being said, I prefer that all of the stretch goals of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night be met first.
Redogan: Some people are gonna get to eat a meal and play some games with IGA! Awesome!

LeoLeWolferoux: Sooo... I guess some dude on Twitter stumbled across a financial document from 505 games indicating that a '2nd version' of Bloodstained was in the works??? back sometime in like 2021???

LeoLeWolferoux: How am I just now finding out about this/ C'mon, IGN. Get it together.

LeoLeWolferoux: Dunno how this Twitter user came across these documents, tho, assuming since they don't know any further details, it wasn't someone *from* 505 Games. I certainly hope it was obtained via legal means...

XombieMike: Shortly after 505 let that document go public the official Bloodstained twitter confirmed there will be a second game. ArtPlay is finishing Bloodstained DLC and then we will learn more about the next game.

Redogan: Any ideas on when we get the rest of the updates? I'm still waiting on my physical copy with everything on it for my CV collection.

Redogan: Nice to see a project update! I like the new Classic 2.0 mode with Dominique. Looks like it plays like a traditional CV game--which is a good thing. Glad to see some gameplay video of Chaos and VS modes, too!

ShroudedTraveler: Did they say when they were releasing the update with Dominique? I don't recall seeing anything in the video, so I'm assuming not
Sept 7, 2023 16:40:01 GMT -6
Redogan: I didn't see anything about the release date. I just know that it is paid DLC. (So, us backers don't get it for free. Which is fine.)
Sept 8, 2023 16:54:52 GMT -6
ShroudedTraveler: Yeah. At this point, with the game being as old as it is, I'd be fine paying for the content.

XombieMike: Classic mode 2 will be canon!
