The Bloodborne Kart fan game created by modder Lilith.zip will have to change its name as per Sony’s request.
On Twitter, Lilith.zip said that Sony contacted her saying that she needs to make changes to her fan game, a Bloodborne-style kart-racing game. “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,” she explains. “Don’t worry, the game is still coming out! It’ll just look slightly different.”
Lilith also clarifies that she expected this to happen and will let people know as soon as possible when a new release date is figured out. It was supposed to be launched on January 31. She mentions that scrubbing the Bloodborne references will result in an original game that her and the team have full creative control over.
At the moment, there isn’t a full plan to put the game on a platform like Steam when it’s ready. However, it will be available for download on its own dedicated website. Back in 2022, Lilith revealed the Bloodborne Kart fan game and it got plenty of attention.
Bloodborne was first released in 2015 and fans have been eagerly waiting for some sort of follow-up or even just a 60fps remaster. Fans were excited when Lilith revealed a fan-made PS1 demake of Bloodborne in 2022 as well.
