Bloodborne: The Old Hunters – Check Out The New Weapon “Juunikutachi” In Action, and a Boss Kill

on September 18, 2015 8:29 AM

Bloodborne‘s expansion The Old Hunters will come with ten different weapons, and today you can see one of the most interesting in action.

It still doesn’t have an official English name, but in Japanese it’s called Juunikutachi, which can be roughly translated as Monster Meat Cleaver. It can change between a gruesome sword and a bladed whip.

Besides the weapon, in the video below you can also see a kill of the boss of the demo available at Tokyo Game Show. Yet, don’t get cocky with him when you get your hand on the expansion on November 24th. I spoke with Producer Masaaki Yamagiwa, and he told me that he’ll be quite a lot stronger in the final game. The demo was made easier to be accessible on the show floor.

Update: during a second chat with Yamagiwa-san, he mentioned that the name of the weapons is actually “Juunikutachi.” The article has been corrected accordingly.
