Though I haven't finished it yet, I've played a bit of the game using Bloodless. I have to say it garners my interest far more then Zangestu mode ever did. Unlike Zangestu mode, Bloodless isn't required to execute button combos in order to pull off attacks or the like.

Classic Mode is the closest Wayforward will ever get to making a Castlevania.

I can see Wayforward coming along in the future for other Bloodstained games or spinoffs. They already have a Metroidvania background prior to assisting with Ritual of the Night in the Shantae games, and the obviously Castlevania-influenced The Mummy Demastered.

Castlevania's current home seems to be trying to get it to work for mobile platforms, so I don't believe Konami would even consider Wayforward, despite the...well, absolutely blatant effort they did with Classic Mode here.

Classic mode is more of a remake of CV1 than SCIV or Haunted Castle ever were.

Change my mind.

That's true, but the ending is another story.

I really hope they keep Wayforward, like I always say WF has done a great job. I bet if they had been working on things from the start, we woulda got all the stretch goals on time and under budget.

I started classic mode a few days ago but not super far. I keep dying to dumb things like jumping to a platform but missing my mark and falling into a pit. Even still, I've been having a good time with it.

I've enjoyed playing classic mode however there is a tiny bit of lag which does cause trouble for me. Another minor gripe is that Miriam's whip can't up-grade  :'(  That would have made classic mode all the more sweet.

The slide makes it easy to skip past the snake dragon enemies, and if I remember correctly, the slide also does damage. Don't use it near trap doors, I instantly fell through one that was completely closed when I slid over it.

Somehow I missed the backdash, I didn't know that was an ability.

Oh yeah, I found out during gameplay that you could backdash and backflip but didn't know about the slide until the credits too lol

To bad you can’t upgrade the whip or subweapons in 1986 mode.  Seems like it’d be harder than the original CV game without that.  Maybe they really would get sued if you could, ha.

I haven't played the 86 mode or whatever, but it said something about no slides or backdash. As mentioned above, I didn't even know those were things until I finished the game.

A new mainline Bloodstained game is in development. I imagine there's a team working on the new game and a smaller team finishing the remaining DLC goals for Ritual of the Night.
