Swedish game developer Stunlock Studios has joined forces with Konami Digital Entertainment (KONAMI) to announce that their highly successful open-world fantasy survival game V Rising will be getting a Castlevania crossover, Legacy of Castlevania, when it fully launches on May 8th on Steam – with a PS5 version launching later this year.

Famed vampire hunter Simon Belmont is infiltrating V Rising to challenge all of Vampire kind. Wielding his legendary whip and an infamous arsenal of holy weaponry, no night stalker will be safe from his righteous crusade through Vardoran. Defeat him and unlock the secrets of his iconic weapon, offering new combat abilities that embody the grace and precision of a deadly Vampire!

While Legacy of Castlevania, including Simon Belmont and the new whip weapon, will come as free content, vampire enthusiasts will be able to purchase the Legacy of Castlevania Premium Pack cosmetic DLC, allowing players to construct their own castles inspired by Castlevania’s classic gothic aesthetic. Decorate your opulent lair, enjoy character customization options inspired by classic Castlevania characters, and spread terror with your spooky skeletal mount. You can even set the tone in your ominous abode with two classic Castlevania themes reimagined by V Rising composer Aleksandria Migova.

“We’re all big fans of Castlevania, so being able to actually create original Castlevania content in our game is a dream come true,” said Rickard Frisegård, CEO of Stunlock Studios. “I want to express a heartfelt thank you to our friends at KONAMI for the chance to bring Castlevania to the V Rising universe. This has been an opportunity for us to channel our love and effort for their games into this collaboration, and we look forward to you being able to experience it for yourself on May 8th!”
