When asked about what they’re looking forward for 2015 by Japanese site 4Gamer, the Production team at Sony Computer Entertainment Japan (and Shuhei Yoshida on top of them) had an unanimous response: Bloodborne!
Teruyuki Toriyama (Producer)
I’m now focused on Bloodborne, which will be released on March 26th (in Japan). Even if we are a little late compared to the date we gave initially, this game has an unique sense of overwhelmingly desperate struggle and exploration of the unknown. I think we can create a new online expwerience for our users. By all means, stay tuned!
Kentaro Motomura (Producer)
Thank you for your support for the Soul Sacrifice series in 2013 and 2014!
The approach out of the beaten path we used when considering user feedback with Soul Sacrifice, I think we might use it next year in some way as well.
About what’s coming next, SCE Japan Studio and From Software teamed up again for next year, and will release the PS4 exclusive title Bloodborne. Please look forward to it, because it’s a considerably solid dark fantasy game!
Masaaki Yamagiwa (Producer)
We will release Bloodborne on March 26th. We’re preparing for release in various ways now. We will continue to publish information step by step on our official Twitter (@Bloodborne_PS4), mine (@giwamasa) and that of marketer Kitao-san (@YasuhiroKitao) so please follow us if you like.
Since we’re also considering internally ways to ask everyone’s cooperation, in that case, please give us a hand.
Shuhei Yoshida (Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President)
In 2015 I want to do my best to finally release Bloodborne. After that I will fully dedicate myself to Project Morpheus. Please accompany me, everyone.
The folks at Sony seem definitely hyped for Bloodborne, and it’ll be interesting to see what else they have in store from now to release, since we’re getting quite close (it’ll hit the shelves on March 24th in the US, March 25th in Europe, and March 27th in UK and Ireland). If the game plays half as good as it looks, we’re in for a real treat.
