Iga’s Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Introduces Three New Characters with New Art

Koji Igarashi enriches the cast of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night with three new characters.

Today, the team behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, with Koji Igarashi at the helm, released some new artwork introducing three new characters for the game.

The three new entries are a woman who supports protagonist Miriam, a man related to the incident from 10 years before, and a young villager.

Dominique Baldwin 
Age: 25
An exorcist dispatched by the church, she supports Miriam as the shopkeeper. She speaks in a posh way, but she treats everyone kindly. While the church believes Miriam and Gebel to be demons, Dominique trusts them as human beings. In order to foil Gebel’s ambitions, she asks her old friend Johannes to summon Miriam. 

Alfred 
Age: 57
Alfred is one of the alchemists responsible for the demon-summoning uproar ten years ago. He was Johannes’s mentor, and a father figure to both Johannes and Miriam, but he’s lost his former self as he heads to the castle seeking the Book of Logaeth in Gebel’s possession. Quite and intelligent, Alfred’s alchemic ability was unmatched even among his fellow alchemists.

Anne Knolles
Age: 12
A village girl whose parents were murdered. Anne was saved by Dominique and Miriam when demons attacked her village. When Dominique is out of town, Anne looks after the shop. She is a bright and cheerful girl.

On top of the new characters, we also get a Q&A video with Igarashi-san himself, responding to a few questions from backers. You can check it out below.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS Vita and Switch. The Wii U version has been recently canceled in favor of the new Nintendo console.
