From Software's Bloodborne, the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls, will be released on February 5, 2015 in Japan, Sony has announced. A North American and European release date has yet to be confirmed.
The news came from the pre-TGS PlayStation press-conference on Monday. During the event, Sony Computer Entertainment, whose Japan Studio is co-developing the game, announced that initial copies in the country will also include an art-book and a soundtrack CD.
Bloodborne comes from From Software development house, of Demon Souls and Dark Souls fame with assistange from Sony-owned Japan Studio, and it's best described as a successor to Demon's Souls with a bit of Resident Evil thrown into the mix. The game is being led by Hidetaka Miyazak, the developer behind the original Demon's Souls and original Dark Souls.
Oddly enough, Yamagiwa, acting producer on the PS4 exclusive, told the press at Gamescom that the game has been designed to feel less punishing that previous Souls games.
