Bloodstained box art Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

I’m an especially lucky person, because I had the privilege of meeting both Koji Igarashi and Mana Ikeda at New York Comic Con 2017.

Between this and the fact that I adored Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, I am definitely ready for this title to finally release.
