Hey stained with blood Lovers!

We’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with our friends at Ubisoft to invite Aurora from Child of Light in the demon-filled world of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

We have long been fans of the critically acclaimed Child of Light platformer RPG and knew right away that Aurora would be a playable guest character in stained with blood† Eagle-eyed fans even noticed that Aurora’s theme was played at the end of the Bloodstained launch trailer in 2019. The time for her arrival is finally here!

As she travels to the Gothic depths of the castle, Aurora will face off against classic Bloodstained opponents, gain strength and gain new attacks and abilities that will aid her in her journey.

Increase the power of Aurora

Aurora improves her stats and gains shards and acquaintances by defeating Gebel’s demons. If you defeat certain bosses, Aurora will rise to her adult form.

Shards and familiars each have ranks and ranks that can be upgraded to make them more powerful. Grades are improved by defeating more creatures and absorbing their power. Ranks can be increased by taking special items from chests in the castle and returning them to Johannes in Arvantville to be transmuted. When Aurora is fully leveled, she is a formidable hero!
