The developer of Bloodborne Kart has apparently been contacted by Sony asking to “scrub the branding off,” however fortunately the venture is not lifeless.
Any longer, Bloodborne Kart will now not be often known as such, as lead dev on the fan-made venture Lilith Walther shared earlier this week that Sony had reached out to her about it. “WHELP. IT HAPPENED [sic]” wrote Walther on Twitter. “Sony contacted me. Lengthy story brief I would like to clean the branding off of what was beforehand often known as Bloodborne Kart, which we’ll do. However that requires a brief delay. Don’t be concerned, the sport remains to be popping out! It’s going to simply look barely totally different.” The fan-game was due out in lower than per week, however with a rebrand like this, it will seemingly nonetheless be a bit till we get to play it now.
It is a bit stunning that Sony have solely now reached out concerning the venture, provided that the venture was introduced two years in the past, and was preceded by a PS1 demake of the principle sport too.
Walther went on to say that “like I’ve stated in a number of interviews, we had been all anticipating this to occur so we might be pleasantly stunned if it did not. It occurred, so we’re shifting gears (ha) to maintain it. I will get again to y’all ASAP after we found out a brand new launch date!! As a lot as I pushed for this to be “the meme made actual” so to talk, turning this into an authentic sport that we have now full artistic management over is sort of thrilling. This can be a fan sport no extra! Regardless, thanks for understanding everybody!!”
For these which are lacking out on the joke, the concept of a Bloodborne kart racer is a little bit of a meme that is been within the sport’s fandom for some time now, born (pun not supposed) out of a robust need for a sequel that is by no means materialised. Our personal Connor truly sat down to speak with Walther concerning the venture final yr, the place she spoke about her causes behind engaged on the venture, and the resurgence of the PSX aesthetic.
