Bloodborne Devs Aren't "Dictated" By The Game Market

Developer From Software's goal sounds admirable: Forget trying to earn an audience; just make a great game that's fun.

Evidently, that was their mindset heading into the creation of the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, Bloodborne.

The game's European producer, Jun Yoshino, answered a few questions concerning the anticipated title over at the Euro PlayStation Blog, and he says the team doesn't make anything for the sake of gaining fans. Rather:

"I think what Miyazaki-san and From Software do, they basically just make a game that they think is fun, and I mean that in a good way. They are not dictated by the market and still deliver really high quality games - I am really glad that they kind of proven to everybody that these types of games could be successful as well," the producer continues."

Yoshino also spoke a bit about the game's structure and mechanics, saying Bloodborne is "like a hybrid of Demon's Souls and Dark Souls." Players will still have a central refuge of sorts but once you wander outside, you can basically go wherever you like. But die-hard fans of the games in question shouldn't get too comfortable; there's more emphasis on offense in the new adventure. For instance, Yoshino said shields "might be crap" and the game revolves around attacking, not defending. He added:

"I think some of the more experienced players will figure out straight away that the gun is like a weapon you can parry with. The fire of the gun is like a parry."

Bloodborne is due out on March 24.

I was thinking the same thing limitedvertigo. It's like what everyone says about dating. Just be yourself...unless your a psycho murderer of course.

When my friend first saw Bloodbourne, he thought it was just DLC for Dar Souls... I can see why. While it is not following marketing trends, it's hardly a risky new IP is it.

"Fun" being the key word, not "hard."

Well "fun" for a masochist might not be the same type of fun for your average gamer. XD

first off i want to say that i'm glad that they aren't letting the "casual/mainstream" tampering with the pedigree of the game.

and then using offence as defence the gun par thats a neew type of defence tactic could be a rather interesting new thing for games mechanics

but sounds good to me

happy gaming

Speaking honestly, I'm probably going to get BloodBorne, and play it once. If the PvP is solid, I might play that for a while. After all, the PvP is the only reason I ever played the previous Souls games more than just one storyline run. But I am not hyped for this game to come out, because I want it.

No, I am hyped for this game to release, because maybe, just maybe, FromSoft will move away from Souls for a minute, and give me AC6 (Armored Core, not Assassin's Creed). It's doubtful, since Souls is pretty much the only game they make, as far 95% of fans outside Japan know. But, even if I have to wait until BloodBorne Again and Dark Souls 3/3.5 have come and gone, and AC6 doesn't come until 2017, just knowing that they're working on it, and that it will become a reality in the future, will be enough for me.
