How’s the difficulty? I was watching Jim play it, and it looked pretty...easy. Are there difficulty modes?

The difficulty ranges in each area with the monsters, for example I came across an enemy early that can half your health and kill you on the spot with its assaults. there are difficulty modes in the game but I just went with the default.

Edit: Just a heads up there's a secret enemy that can take you down something fierce later in the game. Stumbled on an easy way to cheese it.

How close to Castlevania does this game feel like gameplay and atmosphere wise? I'm a metroidvania guy since GBA games to NDS, played a ton of them and SotN.

I read IGA wants to make another Castlevania (or two) if he gets a chance. I think he hinted it could be based on the story of Dracula's death in 1999 (J. Belmont), sort of a 'prequel' to Aria Of Sorrow.

Gameplay wise it's pretty similar to the Castlevania games, though your backdash isn't as good as say Alucard's at the beginning. Atmosphere on the other hand is a different matter, in that I think there is more cheese that Bloodstained leans into.

Just beat the slot machine monster, and... it was something alright.

Wait, what? It's crazy to the Japanese being treated like this, usually it's either NA or EU that get fucked for no discernible reason. It must sting especially considering it's made by a Japanese developer. This was like the one kickstarter game, from that infamous lot that seemed to have relatively few issues, clearly 505 should have found a Japanese partner if this was going to be so hard for them.
