Welcome to the Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon walkthrough!

Taiyou will be your voice-over commentator showing you around the game’s stages on Normal Mode.

Get ready for some retro Castlevania goodness! 😀

Power Ups per Stage Overview:

• Stage 1: Moonlight Temptation – Health Up (in Nightmare Mode only!) — Requirement: Gebel’s bat ability.
• Stage 2: Frigid Hell – Weapon Energy Up
• Stage 3: The Brilliant Void – Health Up
• Stage 4: Blasphemy unto Heaven – Weapon Energy Up

• Stage 6: Tragedy of Slaughter – Attack Up
• Stage 7: Defiler of Taboos – Defense Up
• [1:25:00] Stage 8: Curse the Moon & Final Boss Fight – No Power Up

Endings Guide:

1.) Normal ending.

Play the game on Normal Mode and recruit everyone. Beat the last boss. Unlocks Nightmare.

2.) Nightmare mode.

This mode picks up where Normal mode left off. Start a new game, select Nightmare mode and defeat the new final boss.

This ending has a pretty cool post credits scene. Be sure not to accidentally miss it.

3.) Play the game on Normal Mode without recruiting allies.

You know how the game prompts you to press UP to recruit a new ally? Do NOT do this. Instead, ignore it and walk past them instead (do NOT attack / kill them either). Beat the game with no allies to see a unique ending.

Also interesting to note is that this ending says “FIN” instead of “The End…?” This may be the supposed canon ending.

4.) Play the game on Normal Mode and kill all allies.

You can also attack allies instead of recruiting them. Beating the game like this will give you the ultimate “bad end,” with the game basically telling you the world is screwed. Unlocks Ultimate Mode & then Boss Rush Mode as well.

Boss Rush Mode

How To Unlock Boss Rush Mode: Unlock Nightmare and Ultimate Modes. Nightmare Mode is unlocked by finishing the game on Normal Mode. Ultimate Mode is unlocked by finishing the game on Nightmare Mode and killing all of your companions (by attacking each one) instead of recruiting them (so DO NOT press up near them). This unlocks Boss Rush Mode.

Azis will be your guide through Boss Rush Mode with No Damage.
