Bloodborne

  • In an interview with the gaming website Gamespot Brazil, Hidetaka Miyazaki shares his favourite FromSoftware title to date and a few tidbits about what made it such an iconic title.

  • However, Miyazaki has still not given a definite answer on a sequel. When asked about if there were any improvements he would have wanted to make with Bloodborne, Miyazaki mentions in the interview “the Chalice Dungeons and the Blood Gems” as he wanted them to be “…more detailed…” plus he still sees “the possibility of adding more to it”.
  • When asked if this could be in the sequel, but Miyazaki replies: “Bloodborne 2… Unfortunately, it’s not up to me.”

Lost Soul Arise

  • The image shared via the official Twitter account, was also accompanied by a quick statement saying that the development team are “hard at work” and that it was too soon to “share more information”.
  • There is, dare I say, a dragon-like creature accompanying in the image, which could be what the evil mistress in the last trailer might have been referring to. Previous footage showed a promising fast paced, hack ‘n’ slash title with a mix of Devil May Cry and Nier Automata vibes.
  • Lost Soul Aside is set to release on Playstation 4 with no release window announced as of yet.
