Bloodborne probably exists because Sony Wolrdwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida loves From Software’s RPGs – and it shows.
In the Bloodborne video below you can watch the executive challenge a Chalice Dungeon boss. He’s a cautious player with damn good timing and reflexes in a pinch, and he makes a bold end-battle gamble which pays off.
Gamespot dug up this footage, which was originally livestreamed on Nico Nico, and it is certainly a treasure. Look at Yoshida’s triumphant gesture when he nails it. A gamer through and through.
Yoshida is an über fan of From Software games and leapt at the chance for SCE Studio Japan to collaborate with the team as it did with Demon’s Souls. I’m so glad he’s in charge over there, aren’t you?
An expansion for Bloodborne is coming soon; we’re hoping for details at E3 2015.
