Bloodborne excelled and may have even managed to outdo the original Dark Souls in many ways. The level of polish and refinement that went into everything from the sound design, to world design, to weapons to cape physics is astounding and in many ways, it’s a more even experience that most of the Dark Souls series. And while I debate whether or not Bloodborne should stand as a great singular experience or turn into a series. What it really comes down too, is do we want more? And by god yes, we really do!
With three projects in development, one being an Armoured Core Sequel and at least one of the others being ‘Soulsesque’, chances are that we could be delving back into Miyazaki’s Lovecraftian world sooner rather than later.
