Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will feature cross-play between Xbox One and Windows 10

Koji Igarashi, project lead of the upcoming 2.5-D action game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, took to Microsoft's stage at Gamescom 2015 to announce that the game would be coming to not only Xbox One, but also Windows 10. The Castlevania-like title will feature cross-play between the PC and Xbox, letting gamers on both platforms play together.

Igarashi also announced that a new character, a demon hunter with no name as of yet, will be added to the game. The character wields two swords, and casts Japanese spells.
