Koji Igarashi Beats Bloodstained: RotN E3 Demo in under Five Minutes
Is it OK to refer to a game by its initials if it hasn't come out yet?
07.13.16 - 4:04 AM

Koji Igarashi, esteemed producer of numerous Castlevania games, is not one to shy away from a challenge, it seems. At Bitsummit, a major indie game festival in Kyoto, the Man/Myth/Legend was presented with the challenge of beating the demo of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night he and his team put out for E3 — in under five minutes. If that's not enough, he was also given the stipulation that the challenge must be completed without backdashes, killing enemies (save for the boss and one necessary for progression) or using healing potions. Does he complete this gauntlet? If you didn't read the headline (or if you want to see him crush a demo,) watch the video (from Giuseppe's Gaming) below!

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is set to release in March 2017 for PC, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox One and Wii U. Are you hyped for Bloodstained? Sound off in our forums and pore over concept art in our gallery to tide yourself over!
