Aurora from Child of Light joins Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Hello Bloody fans!

We are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with our friends at Ubisoft to invite Aurora from Son of the light in the world full of demons Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night!

We are longtime fans of the acclaimed Son of the light platform role-playing game and I knew right away that Aurora was going to be a playable guest character in Bloody. Eagle-eyed fans even noticed that Aurora’s theme was played at the end of Bloodstained’s 2019 launch trailer. It’s finally time for her arrival!

Lost in this strange new land, Aurora must battle the monsters of Gebel Castle alongside her friend, Igniculus. As she journeys into the gothic depths of the castle, Aurora will face classic Bloodstained adversaries, growing in power and gaining new attacks and abilities to aid her on her journey.

It’s up to you to help her find her way home.


Playing as Aurora is easy. Make sure your game client has the latest update when it launches today, March 31. Start a new game from the main menu and choose Aurora from the character selection screen. That’s it. Explore the entire bloodstained castle, use the save rooms to save your progress and the teleport rooms to move quickly.

Increases Aurora’s power

Aurora improves her stats and acquires shards and familiars by defeating Gebel’s demons. Defeating certain bosses will cause Aurora to level up to her adult form.

Shards and familiars have ranks and tiers that can be upgraded to make them more powerful. Ratings improve by defeating more creatures and absorbing their power. Ranks can be increased by acquiring special items from chests within the castle and returning them to Johannes in Arvantville for him to transmute. When Aurora is fully leveled up, she is a formidable hero!

We hope you enjoy Aurora as she begins her new adventure starting today! Thank you for being fans of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night!
