Back to back: Boss Rush Mode coming to Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2

One of the most pleasant surprises from the New Game+ Expo was the announcement of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2. The title, an homage to the NES Castlevania games, is out today through the Switch eShop. Developer Inti Creates has even more good news to go along with the launch. Yesterday, it announced a Boss Rush Mode will be added to the game next week, free of charge.

More features for Curse of the Moon 2 is music to my ears

Here are the details regarding the extra content from the developer itself:

Ver.1.2.0 ?Update on 7/16/2020?
“BOSS RUSH” Mode has been added! This will unlock once certain in-game conditions are met, and can then be accessed from the Title Screen.
Various bug fixes

Gotta love those bug fixes so soon after launch. Honestly, Inti Creates could have just waited a week and released Curse of the Moon 2 with the improvements and mode all at once.

In any case, here’s a trailer:

Looks sweet. It wouldn’t be a Castlevania-like title without a Boss Rush. Konami would be proud if it still cared about the franchise.

Enthusiasts, have you downloaded Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2? Are you excited about the Boss Rush Mode? Let us know below. Personally, I’m waiting for the physical edition from Limited Run Games.
