Five More Creatures Cut from Bloodborne Have Been Discovered

Last year, gamers got a good look at cut Bloodborne content in the form of the Great One Beast, an unused boss monster that would have appeared in the Chalice Dungeon. This year, the cut content gravy train keeps on rolling, because YouTuber Lance McDonald posted a video with even more cut Bloodborne beasts. Here’s a quick rundown of the eldritch monstrosities the Bloodborne community has discovered.

Slug Princess

Well, she looks creepy. As the name implies, she’s slow, slimy, and might have been an early concept for an enemy that made it into the game, the Snail Woman. Like many other cut creatures, the Slug Princess is almost fully realized, but where she would have resided and what role she would have played in the game are ultimately unknown.

Small Witches

Unlike Slug Princess, Small Witch is an unofficial name, which makes it difficult to speculate just who or what it would have been in Bloodborne. McDonald theorizes these little Jawa-like creatures might be related to the Eye Collector and Witch of Hemwick enemies, which is nothing more than speculation. What we do know about these enemies is FromSoftware never gave them hitboxes or finished their animations. And, they can dash at the player.

Incomplete Patient

Oh dear god, what is that thing? It looks like the Enlarged Head Patients if they came from Silent Hill. As you can tell, this…thing…is one of the most unfinished pieces of content to date. Its textures are beyond low resolution; its geometry is rough and blocky, and most of its animations are jerky and clearly unpolished. Although, if I’m being honest here, this kind of creature deserves jerky animations just for the creep factor.

King of Skeleton

Even though King of Skeleton (yes, that’s what it’s called in the game files) is relatively fleshed out — despite it not having any flesh — it looks out of place in the Lovecraftian horror of Bloodborne. This is the kind of creature that would be at home in Dark Souls. Still, the developers clearly spent a good deal of time on this monster, because it has numerous polished animations, including a fairly hilarious death animation. Moreover, judging by the amount of health, perhaps it was meant to be a boss monster, but that doesn’t explain why it’s an animated skeleton in a world seemingly devoid of animated skeletons.

Lesser Demon

Speaking of enemies that look like Dark Souls monstersthis giant, axe-wielding monstrosity would be right at home on the rooftops of Anor Londo or roaming the halls of the Iron Keep. While King of Skeleton might have either been a boss or an extra-tough enemy, I have no doubt Lesser Demon was meant to be a boss before it got the axe (pardon the pun). This hellbeast features plenty of complete animations and sounds, and while its skin texture looks a little rough, perhaps it was meant to be on fire, given the bright red patches. Still, like King of Skeleton, Lesser Demon looks out of place in Bloodeborne. Maybe it was created early on in Bloodborne‘s development before FromSoftware decided to give the game a Lovecraftian aesthetic? Someone should get to the bottom of this mystery.

 

Discoveries such as these are always a treat for gamers like me. I love knowing what might have been, discovering what a game could have become had mid-development decisions been different. Given King of Skeleton and Lesser Demon, maybe Bloodborne was meant to be a dark medieval fantasy before it moved into Lovecraft territory. Whether or not that’s true, we might never had thought to ask such questions had gamers not discovered these cut creatures.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

Tekken 8’s upcoming Tekken Shop will offer a variety of paid and free content exclusively on PS5

Bandai Namco has confirmed that the Tekken Shop in the upcoming Tekken 8 will offer a mix of paid and free content. Premium items will be purchasable using a currency known as Tekken Coins. The Tekken Shop will undergo monthly updates, with the developer emphasizing that the intention is to enhance the competitive fighter with new customization items rather than solely for financial gain. However, there is no reason why it cannot be both.

Revealed in a recent Tekken Talk Live stream, chief producer Yasuda Esports shared some of the upcoming features for the Tekken Shop, seemingly aiming to address any potential criticism proactively. “It has been reported that certain individuals may experience an adverse response upon encountering the term’shop”; however, the focus remains on enhancing the game by introducing new customization options to maintain its appeal.”

According to Mr. Esports, the format will be similar to Tekken 7, and the focus is on improving the game experience rather than just making a profit.

Do you think Bandai Namco is establishing the Tekken Shop to maintain the game’s appeal, generate revenue from microtransactions, or perhaps a combination of both? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
