Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night requires a lot of running back and forth across the world. Each new ability you get unlocks new pathways to new areas and new abilities — or new pathways out of old areas. It can get confusing to know which way you need to go next.
As you wander the demonic castle and its surrounding areas, you’ll be picking up ability shards, food, and crafting components. You’ll also be running into obstacles that block your path — and to get past them, you’ll need to pick up key items or abilities from elsewhere in the world.
Getting yourself the best gear and finding (and fighting) your way through the labyrinthine map is a daunting task. We’ve got you covered with a beginner’s guide and tips, a world order guide, a guide to the game’s three endings, maps for each area (with hidden rooms marked), and tips for how to get the game’s best weapon.
