Once you have beaten the game you will be able to access New Game+ at the 'main' menu. New Game+ mode will bring you back to the start of the game but this time you will be able to play the game as Miriam with most of the items that you earned from your earlier playthrough. However there will be certain shards and items required for progression that will not be carried over. Check out our How to Unlock New Game+ in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night guide to find out how this can be done in four simple steps.
The first thing you need to do is to beat the game. If you do not beat the game there is no way you will be able to access New Game+.
Once you have completed the game select 'Game Start' from the 'main' menu. This will display all the save data in the game and you will be able to highlight the save data which you want to start a New Game+.
While the save file is highlighted a new option called 'New Game+' will now be available at the lower left of the screen. Press the corresponding button prompt to turn that save file into a New Game+ file.
Before you start New Game+ you will be given the option to choose which difficulty setting you want to play. If you want to challenge yourself you can opt to choose a higher difficulty.
Check out our How to Collect Movement Powers guide as these will need to be collected once again when you play New Game+.
