Bloodborne Kart was a new fan project that aimed to use the branding, characters, and general world of the beloved Soulsborne to turn it all into a PS1-era Kart racer. The genre is famously associated with Mario Kart, but tons of brands have done kart racing games from Shrek to Nickelodeon and more. It's a cute idea and fans have been very excited to see the project finally release, however, it is getting a short delay. Sony, the publisher of Bloodborne, has stepped in to ask creator Lilith Walther to scrub the game of the Bloodborne branding. The creator noted that the game would still release, it would just look a bit different and be pushed back as a result of this change. Walther noted that they had expected this to happen at some point. They also noted that no longer trying to walk the line of not upsetting Sony and FromSoftware and making it a totally original project means they get full creative control which is exciting.

Sony contacted me
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 💙
