Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has had some interesting cosmetics since its launch, including collaborations with the likes of Journey and Child of Light.

If you thought that was the extent of it, then buckle up, because another collaboration is just around the corner. This time, fans of Shantae will be well-catered for with the Half-Genie Cosmetic Pack, in collaboration with current developer WayForward.

The pack will come in conjunction with the upcoming 1.5 update for Bloodstained, which will introduce Chaos and Vs modes to the game along with three additional paid cosmetic packs for Miriam.

We are excited to announce that a FREE Shantae-inspired Cosmetic Pack DLC for Miriam will be included in Update 1.5! You’ll be ret-2-go dressed as everyone’s favorite Half-Genie hero!
