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.

  • I am wondering how will the devs bring parity between joystick vs kb/mouse. I used to game better with kb/mouse
  • Not all games have to be cross play. This game actually favors gamepad players plus core of the game is co-op but overall the idea is that both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs support the same peripherals. Mouse support is coming to Xbox One along with Windows 10 this year. So a game like Cities: Skylines might very well require mouse and keyboard to play on Xbox One. I believe Microsoft would be fine with that.
