The Japanese launch of From Software’s PS4 exclusive is slated for 5th February 2015

Bloodborne’s eastern debut was revealed at a PlayStation press conference in the lead up to this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Siliconera.reports the game lands in Japan on the 5th of February next year.

Sony Computer Entertainment - who are collaborating with From Software on Bloodborne’s development - also let on that the first print copies to hit the region will come bundled with a soundtrack CD and art book.

Bloodborne was initially revealed at E3 earlier this year, the game is being guided by Demon’s and Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki and while there are some similarities to the popular Souls RPGs with Bloodborne, it iwon't be a straight sequel.

Masaaki Yamagiwa, who has worked on the Souls games and is acting as producer for Bloodborne told the press at Gamescom that it is being designed to be a less punishing experience than the Souls games.

"We want to deliver a game that gamers love, so if the gamer likes the game they will definitely like it enough to have that bit of perseverance. But in the way which we're making the game the sense of punishment is much less," said Yamagiwa at the time.

We’re on the look-out for the North American and European release announcements for Bloodborne and will report back as we have them.
