At first it was only rumors and a few screenshots but now it appears to be real and indeed happening with this video. The reason Miyazaki wasn't working on Dark Souls II (which was slightly disappointing and missing his attention to detail) must be because he was working on this. It seems to have a more dark gothic setting more akin to Demon's Souls and may even be Demon's Souls II as Sony co-developed it with From Software and they own the rights to the IP. The game is rumored to also be co-developed with Sony and to be a PS4 exclusive.

I'm so hyped, this is a system seller for me! So what's everyone else's take on this? I like the direction it seems to be going in because I greatly preferred the atmosphere of Demon's Souls over that of Dark Souls.

I've never actually played Demon Souls, but sorta exited for this one! Do you think I will need to play the previous one, to understand this one?

As much as I would like it to be Demon's Souls II the first one was published by 3 different companies (Sony in JP, Atlus in US, Bandai in EU) so the licensing situation is very vague. There's a good chance it could be another "spiritual successor". The other "Souls" games are mostly self contained with very sparse references to past stories so it shouldn't be a problem to just jump right in.

If you do ever get a chance to play Demon's Souls on the cheap though I still recommend it, it's not as polished as Dark Souls but the atmosphere is nice and I think the music and boss fights are more interesting. If you are new to the series I feel I should warn you that these games require quite a bit of willpower, determination, and the patience to learn patterns and observe your surroundings.

I'm sure it will be a Demon Souls 2 which IMO is way better than Dark Souls. I can't wait for this game though and I'm sure they will show off more at E3

Pretty excited for this, especially as it now seems to be more than a rumor.
Expecting to see something at E3 (perhaps even get to play the thing?!?!?) but, if not, I guess it'll be announced officially at TGS. Either way, it looks like Sony are making up for the mistake they made by not securing the Demon's Souls IP when they had the opportunity.

Bloodborne is the name, it looks like a straight up horror game with elements from the souls series. I do like it, I haven't played a horror game in a long time where I could really get into it. If the mechanics makes it too easy what is there to fear? Well with this game...I think I will fear everything.

Edit: Why didn't they show THIS trailer instead? http://www.onlysp.com/new-trailer-leaked-ps4-exclusive-bloodborne-looks-fantastic/
It actually includes gameplay and it looks great.

That's supposedly almost a year old build with outdated graphics. Hopefully we see a new game play trailer at the TGS

From what I hear though the current build has some framerate stability issues so they may have to cut back on it a little bit. This could mean resolution, textures, particles, clutter, or any combination of them. I don't really care if they have to downgrade it a bit as stability is way more important and I am confident the gameplay will be great.

The off-screen that I have seen definitely looks way better than that old trailer so it wouldn't be hard to imagine the final build being somewhere between the two graphically.

New Bloodborn trailer from Gamescom:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hdzpy5UXT0Y&list=UU-2Y8dQb0S6DtpxNgAKoJKA

Looks fantastic and it's going to be released within 6 months!
Seems like I have to get PS4 little sooner than expected.
