The game is expected to follow the Metroidvania-style gameplay of the post-Symphony of the Night and Order of Ecclesia games of the Castlevania series “Bloodstained follows the protagonist Miriam, an orphan who was taken in by an Alchemist guild and subjected to experiments that cause her to crystalize as the result of magi-crystals, crystalized demonic energy, being transplanted into her body. The ordeal placed her in a ten year coma, awakening to find her condition temporarily halted by an alchemist named Johannes who was against the guild’s act to summon demons to their world, though his treatment can be averted should Miriam assimilate too many crystal shards from defeated demons.To prevent the outbreak of demons and end the curse while retaining her humanity, Miriam ventures into Demon Castle to confront Gebel, another of the alchemists’ magi-crystal experiments who lost his humanity and summoned the demons to change the world.”
