Bloodborne Kart, the incredible-looking fan project that transposes the world and iconic characters of FromSoftware’s 2015 PS4 hit Bloodborne to a PS1-style kart/combat racer, was originally slated to release in full as soon as this week, with a January 31st launch date.
Sadly, that date has now been pushed back indefinitely as the game’s creator, Lilith Walther (who also created the BloodbornePSX demake), works to scrub the Bloodborne branding from the game. This comes after they were contacted by Sony regarding the game, a turn of events that’s not surprising in the fact that it happened, but perhaps a little in terms of the timing and proximity to release.
Walther’s tweet announcing the delay reads, “WHELP. IT HAPPENED. 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.”

When it does eventually drop, Bloodborne Kart will feature 12 racers, 16 unique maps, a full single player campaign mode complete with boss fights and a local split screen multiplayer including a VS Battle Mode.
