Kingdom Crossover Update Guide – Bloodstained Ritual of the Night

Bloodstained Ritual of the Night received an update today that added a couple of new things to the game. The first thing that was added is a new mode called Classic Mode. The second thing that was added (and is the topic of this post) is a new area to celebrate the Kingdom: Two Crowns crossover that occurred last year. This new Kingdom Crossover addition adds a new area to the game, a new boss, and a new shard for players to acquire. To help you complete the Kingdom Crossover update use our guide below.

How to Access the Kingdom Area Called Deadlands

The new area that was added to the game is called the Kingdom area. This location is hidden on your map and becomes accessible only after you’ve beaten Bathin. Once you meet this requirement you need to acquire the Crown of Creation headpiece item. This item can be purchased from Dominque/Anne underneath Arvantville for 1 Gold.

Once you have the Crown of Creation head to the train station. Board the train from the left platform while wearing the crown and travel right until you reach the end of the train. Here interact with the the door like you would to get off it. Select yes to skip to destination to get taken to the new area called Deadlands.

Defeat the Breeder to Get Archer Shard

The Deadlands is a large outdoor room that is taken from Kingdom: Two Crowns. In this room head right to encounter the first Gaigin enemy. Defeat it then continue to the right to encounter a second Gaigin. Defeat this enemy and continue right again to reach the Breeder. This enemy is fairly tanky to fight and it spawns in enemies called Greedlings as its main source of damage dealing. When you do defeat the Breeder you will receive the Familiar: Archer shard which summons a familiar archer to follow you around when equipped.

That’s all you need to know to complete the Kingdom Crossover Update in Bloodstained Ritual of the Night. This event shouldn’t take you very long to complete, but it is a nice bonus to an already meaty experience.

    I just did this last night. You don’t need to enter the train with the crown, you just need to be wearing it when you leave. Just as a heads up.
