A Bloodstained survey wants to know what kind of paid cosmetic DLC players would like

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the spiritual successor to Castlevania, was recently released and it has been getting some positive feedback. There’s a plan in place to release 13 pieces of free DLC for the game, with some already out, but ArtPlay is now asking players about additional paid DLC which will give more cosmetic choices through clothing and accessories. The plan is for each of these packs to include the following:

– Headgear accessory
– Alternate version of the headgear accessory
– Back accessory (scarves, wings, etc.)
– Full outfit/dress replacement
– Boots
– Weapon
– Shard


However, ArtPlay has stated that this could change depending on feedback. The survey itself isn’t that long. It asks the standard questions like age and sex you identify as, whether you supported Bloodstained via crowdfunding, if you’ve bought the game. The survey then goes on to ask which of the cosmetic idea suggestions you like, but you don’t have to worry about which ones you pick as you can choose up to 16 options. Those options are as follows:

  • Armored Valkyrie (not the same as the “Valkyrie Dress” already in game)
  • Fully Corrupted / Cursed (like Gebel or one of the last bosses of the game…)
  • Demon
  • Succubus
  • Vampire (elegant and refined like O.D.)
  • Nun / Exorcist (like Dominique)
  • Maid
  • Angel
  • Galaxy / stars
  • Lunar
  • Japanese-style one piece bathing suit
  • Bunny & Cat (would match currently in game bunny scarf, ears, boots and cat ears)
  • 3D wireframe
  • Magical girl / mahou shoujo
  • Kimono / Traditional Japanese Geisha
  • Modern casual clothes
  • Elemental packs (fire, dark, lightning, etc.)
  • Samurai
  • Ninja
  • Mage
  • Princess
  • Chef
  • “Cute Beast Beret” themed pack
  • Cowgirl
  • Paladin
  • White Mage
  • Archer
  • Pirate
  • Dark Knight
  • Steampunk
  • Japanese school outfit
  • Sci-fi / futiristic
  • Prehistoric cave woman

As you can see there’s quite the variety of choices. The survey then goes on to ask to state what you would consider a fair price for the content, with options starting at $0.99 per pack and up to $9.99. As this is for paid DLC an option for ‘free’ is not presented. The survey is quite straightforward as to why a paid DLC approach is being considered with the description stating, “Although the vast majority of the extra stuff we want to make is free, we also have to make some money to be able to do that lol. More moneyz = more tasty free DLC. :)”
