Bloodborne fans finally have something to look forward to, even if it might not be what they expected. Lilith Walker or PSX Bunlith (@b0tster) has been on for some time.
It finally has a release date: January 31, 2024. Originally revealed in early 2022, Bloodborne Kart started around 2017 as a meme within the Bloodborne and Soulsborne fan communities. FromSoft even went as far as creating art and mods around the theme. And now they’re about to race around Yarnham in a go-kart themselves.
The announcement, made in a post on It, also includes a gameplay trailer showcasing some of these modes.
🗓 RELEASE January 31, 2024! 🗓
➡ 12 racers!
➡ 16 cards!
➡ Full single player campaign mode!
➡ Boss fights!

Bloodborne is now eight years old and despite massive community outcry, PlayStation Studios has yet to release any updated ports or new versions for the PlayStation 5 or PC, as is the case with other first-party titles such as The Last Of Us Part 1 war and God of War (2018).
There’s no indication that there will ever be another official release as part of FromSoft’s collaboration with PlayStation, but Soulsborne fans can rest assured. Our friends at IGN Japan reported that the studio behind Elden Ring and Armored Core VI is currently recruiting a “large development staff.”
