Oh, the agony of waiting for Bloodborne on PC! But fear not, my fellow gamers, for we have something even more exhilarating hurtling towards us: Kartborne! Yes, you heard it right - a mind-boggling fusion of Bloodborne and kart racing. I know, I know, it sounds like an April Fool's joke, but this wild creation has transformed into a fully-fledged racing game that will have you on the edge of your seat. However, there's a slight twist in this tale. Sony, in all its wisdom, has tapped the brakes and requested the developers to shed the Bloodborne branding. But don't despair, for Kartborne will still be speeding its way into our lives!
Back in August 2022, when Kartborne was announced, our excitement skyrocketed. After all, Lilith Walther, one of the masterminds behind the fantastic BloodbornePSX demake, was at the helm. We all knew that the bar was set sky-high. But the concept of Bloodborne Kart itself is simply irresistible. Picture this: the nightmarish world of Bloodborne, but with racetracks and turbo boosts. It's a peculiar blend that piques even the most curious of minds.
Now, Kartborne isn't just a fleeting novelty; it's a full-throttle racing extravaganza. Prepare yourself for 12 racers battling it out across 16 thrilling maps. And hold on tight, because there's more! Kartborne boasts a "full singleplayer campaign mode" that will have you burning rubber through twisted streets and haunted shortcuts. But that's not all. Strap on your seatbelt for split-screen local multiplayer, where you can challenge your friends to a fierce race to the finish line. And brace yourself for the ultimate adrenaline rush in the versus battle mode. But wait, there's a twist that will make your heart race even faster—boss fights! That's right, you'll have to outmaneuver colossal bosses while dodging obstacles and grabbing power-ups. It's a race for survival like you've never seen before.
Now, here's where our story takes an unexpected turn. Sony, in its infinite wisdom, has asked our daredevil developers to remove the Bloodborne branding. But fear not, my speed-loving comrades, for this isn't the end of the road. Lilith Walther took to Twitter to share the news, saying, "Long story short, I need to scrub the branding off of what was previously known as Bloodborne Kart, which we will do. But that requires a short delay. Don't worry, the game is still coming out! It'll just look slightly different."
Walther seems unfazed by this detour, stating that they expected such a roadblock and are shifting gears to overcome it. In fact, they're rather excited about the opportunity to break free from the Bloodborne branding and create a whole new experience. In a recent tweet, they exclaimed, "As much as I pushed for this to be 'the meme made real' so to speak, turning this into an original game that we have full creative control over is kind of exciting. This is a fan game no more!"
So, my fellow speed demons, fear not! The game formerly known as Bloodborne Kart will soon shed its skin and emerge as an original creation, ready to ignite the flames of your racing spirit.
