What a Halloween surprise! Last night of the dead, Lilith Walther and Corwyn Prichard they announced that el demake de Bloodborne it is practically finished and they plan to launch it next January 31, 2022. Also, according to Kotaku, who met with the creators at the beginning of the year, the project it will be free for everyone and anyone can enjoy this particular return to Yharnam. And in case anyone is still wondering what a “demake” is, it is neither more nor less than recreating what a current video game would look like on old consoles. In this specific case, the goal was always make the From Software masterpiece look like a 1996 game, as if it had come out on the first PlayStation.
We want more bloodborne
It is curious that, more than six years after its launch (back in March 2015), Bloodborne continues to give something to talk about, in a good way and in a bad way. On the one hand, a hypothetical continuation appeared to be in jeopardy following the controversial restructuring of Japan Studio (who collaborated with From Software on the game) and the consequent farewell to Sony from several of its main producers (such as Teruyuki Toruyama and Masaaki Yamagiwa). But on the other hand, the opposite has happened, the statements of the Japanese company invite us to be optimistic, since it has been recognized that the game exceeded expectations, it has become the most played on PS Now in spring 2021 (we repeat, more than five years after its premiere) and rumors about a set-up for PS5 have not stopped happening.
Of which there is no doubt is that the title occupies a very special place in the memory of the community And until we know if the saga has a future or not, between this Bloodborne demake and the next Elden Ring, we are not badly served either.
