Today Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia announced with a press release and a new trailer something rather interesting: a TV program dedicated to Bloodborne titled “Mortal Combat x Game – Nobuaki Kaneko Challenges the World Awaited Game”
The trailer, which you can see below, is actually pretty funny if you understand what is said.
First the narrator introduces the program, mentioning that Nobuaki Kaneko will challenge the world-awaited game in a mortal duel. The three big Kanji that appear on screen afterwards mean “Fear” “Delight” and “Despair” as Kaneko-san goes “I don’t like this!” “Yeaaah! Did it!” and then “This is bad…” as he collapses. After the narrator lists the broadcast times, he exclaims “what’s with this game?!” and laughs.
The program itself will air on TV Tokyo from March 16th to March 26th every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for eight episodes, which will be then made available on the game’s official website.
Each episode will last five minutes, from 1:30 to 1:35 in the night, local time (on the 25th the show will air at 1:50).
The show will show Kaneko-san as he plays the game for over ten hours (of course we’re just going to see part of the whole ordeal) until dawn, and most probably virtually dies a whole lot.
For those unfamiliar, Nobuaki Kaneko is a popular Japanese film and TV actor, and musician.
