The idea for the curious crossover of genres arose from a fake meme that emerged in 2017, and developer Lilith Walther shared fake gameplay footage of a Bloodborne racing game back in 2021.
However, the response to the concept encouraged Walther to turn the footage into an actual game. Check out the announcement for its release below:
Full single player campaign mode!
Local split screen multiplayer!
VS Battle mode!
LETS RACE THESE FOUL STREETS

Bloodborne Kart includes 12 racers and single-player campaign across 16 maps, and a local split-screen multiplayer and versus battle modes.
Boss battles are still available in the crossover and players will throw items at other racers to take them out to overtake them.
When it launches, it will be downloadable on itch.io for PC players on January 31.
Walther has also released Bloodborne PSX, a demake of the game inspired by PlayStation 1 games of that era, and it is free for PC.
“Sony, SCEA, and FromSoftware are not affiliated with this fan project. All content is the property of their respective owners,” said Walther on the entry for Bloodborne PSX.
“Though we’re greatly honoured that many players felt the ‘Bloodborne vibe’ through our trailer release, it definitely wasn’t intentional,” said director Ji-won Choi.
“Still, Bloodborne and other Souls-like titles are certainly inspirational, and almost everyone in our team is a hardcore Souls-like fan.”
In other gaming news, David Hayter hinted to Metal Gear fans that the Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection is “only the beginning” of the resurgence of the stealth series.
