Penny Blood, the spiritual successor to the fan-favorite Shadow Hearts series, wowed on Kickstarter back in 2022. While we still patiently await its release, the roguelite companion game Penny Blood: Hellbound just hit Early Access on Steam for early backers up to January 31st! It will be available to purchase for everyone else on March 7th (6:00 p.m. JP time) at $20 USD. That price will increase once the game leaves Early Access.

Developed by Natsume Atari with input from the team at Yukikaze, Penny Blood: Hellbound puts you in the shoes of the villains from the main game, the Hellhounders, as they try to escape a magical prison.

Currently available as a closed beta for Kickstarter supporters who bought the backer kit, the Early Access build adds a variety of new features. New content to Penny Blood: Hellbound includes the following:

  • New playable character: Axeman
  • A new dungeon with an all new boss and enemies
  • Badges to customize your base
  • Two new NPCs to assist your dungeon crawling, such as Alma
  • Two new facilities to add to your base, such as Kugai’s Accessory Facility
  • A new mini-game

Penny Blood: Hellbound is expected to launch out of Steam Early Access sometime during Summer 2024 with 30% more content. Stay tuned to RPGFan as we learn more about the spin-off and the main game!
