Hope this finds you, Iga san and the team in the best health......
Now that Amiibo support is open when Nintendo announced Shovel Knight Amiibo and also these amazing new guys:
Can you please consider an Amiibo figure? It was and still one of the pending items on my list :P I hope that you still remember my list...Thank you
"much less a character from Japan"
Lol, IGA forgot about Sorrow games.
Still waiting for the survey to happen... Nothing.. but silence... ****Crickets****
Zangetsu looks awesome! Im hoping he will be one of the bonus playable characters!
@Andrew Mangialino I was thinking the same thing. I thought Mina Hakuba was Japanese and that Soma Cruz was a Japanese high school student, in the Japanese version (transfer student in the English version).
I meant to say SORROW games....
I feel like there are Japanese characters in the dawn games.... I mean....yeah. right? ;)
Love how this game is shaping up. Keep up the great work, Iga!
Well do recall ninjas are not samurai. Two different, contrasting types of warrior.
Yes we finally have a character that specializes in samurai swords. Maybe Zangetsu might be a hidden character like Albus from Order of Ecclesia or is he a character you have to find like in Julius mode of Dawn of Sorrow? He can just stay in the prequel being playable or unplayable as I wouldn't mind it. The game sounds better every time there's an update. Thank you guys.
I will not look anything ... total faith !
私は何も見てません...合計信仰 !!!!! (///◔(ｪ)◔///)
Still got my eyes on this!
Finally an update! I like all the details provided about Zangetsu, now Im more interested in seeing him. I will be waiting for PAX!

I really like the look fo this new character. I already saw him at Gamescom when Iga appeared on stage to announce him. I also take that he's a playable character? Maybe? Either way, cool stuff.
Very Cool character! Can't wait to see him in-game!
Zangetsu reminds me of Yoshimitsu from the Soul series of fighting games, if only because of his wooden prosthetic right arm.
Looks really good!
Just a suggestion: Be careful on how you manage your resources. Don't want you to run out of money.
GETSUGA TENSHOOO !!!
Love the idea of a Samurai character! I hope you are correct @Joseph McCay. Would likely be a blast to play as Zangetsu.
Like the rest of the character design, I really like Zangetsu, nice use of chains instead of belts or straps.
Digging Zangetsu. The kind of old experienced badass that reminds me of Julius.
Likely that Zangetsu will follow the proud Castlevania tradition of a secondary playable character that plays completely different from the MC.
#IGAVANIA is running wild XD
I like the look of zangetsu good luck to iga and the rest of the team making bloodstained
cannot wait to see what you have a month from know.
Zangetsu looks cool, i like the ofuda on his arm and...i hope he will be a playable character.
I really like how things are shaping up of Bloodstained - Thank you and keep up the good work, Team IGA :D
Great new character. He looks awesome.
I love Zangetsu! I hope he will be a playable character in both the prequel and the main game. He is my favorite character of all that were revealed.
Awesome to see a new update and good to hear about the surveys and upgrade possibilities since I'll most definitely upgrade my pledge to a higher level :)
After last year's Kamen Rider, I can't help thinking this guy should wear melon-themed armor. :D
Zangetsu looks super cool. He looks like a mix of Mitsurugi from Soul Calibur and Vincent from Final Fantasy VII.
I really like the ofuda on his prosthetic arm.
BRAVO IGA!!!!! i love the new character. cool concept!
you should get a Voice actor of ZANGETSU from bleach to voice ZANGETSU. both Japanese and English. :D
Koji, did you forget about Maxim? He had throwing stars and shadow powers! He was pretty much a ninja! Granted
Even with the cultural blending, Zangetsu feels so incredibly Japanese compared to everything I experienced in Castlevania. Can't wait to see what he's like in the game!
So, is it confirmed who any of the other two playable characters are besides Miriam? I have to admit, if I had to choose, I'd want Zangetsu to be playable probably more than even Johannes or Gebel. All of them would be awesome playable characters, but Zangetsu seems to bring the most to the table so far.
Zangetsu huh? Looks pretty similar to the Zangetsu from Bleach. :)
@Christopher Tedesco Peresson: Surveys are scheduled to go out September 15, so don't worry—you haven't missed anything.

Whoohoo! Happy to read the update! Zangetsu looks super awesome! Can't wait for some katana action! Nice work IGA!
Has the surveys been given out yet? I haven't received mine yet and I'm getting worried.
Happy to see the progress and hear that all is well!
Work hard but do remember to take time for some fun every now and then so you don't get burnt out. ^_^
Excited to see the hype alive again! I eagerly await to hear the gameplay of the 3rd character as well :)
Welcome to the Army Zangetsu ! Congratulations Igarashi-san for this character. I am happy to see the devlopment keep working on and advance. Keep courage !
so Zangetsu will serve as a PREQUEL for bloodstained. hope he doesn't end up dead STORY WISE. :(
Great update, thanks fort visit and taking into vconsideration the forums. Folks, think on great questions to get greater answers =D =)
Thanks for sharing more on Bloodstained! Keep it up! :)
Hahahaha Zangetsu from BLEACH. :P
