    So wtf is written on that parchment? No chinks ITT?

    Btw awesome news. After the disappointment that was PGW I sure as fuck didn't expect From to announce anything at some shitty Games Award event. Miyazaki, the eternal troll.

    Could be an entirely different world/setting, but then they decided to slap Bloodborne 2 on it anyway for brand recognition.

    I was under the impression that DaS3 was all Miyazaki.

    Nope. Fatal Shadows for PS2 is by Fromsoftware (and it's super hard compared to Wrath of Heaven.

    Putting aside the fact the game fucking sucks it has also two co-directors mentioned in the credits. Whereas Bloodborne just Miyazaki. And both games were developed at the same time. But I might be completely wrong and Miyazaki could've spent equal time on both.

    Looks like tenchu to me. pseudo old japanese writing on the parchment. shadow may refer to ninja and 'die twice' sounds like a james bond title.

    Personally I hope it's not Bloodborne 2. If it is though I'm hoping they'll be taking it to a new setting but same-ish mechanics, which judging by the parchment it seems like that's their plan.

    No, it's not. Fatal Shadows was developed by K2, like Wrath of Heaven.

    Fromsoft published it and ported it to PSP. It's not very hard to check this info.

    This. Not a big fan of anything smacking of victorianism. Anyway...

    Seems we can calm our tits and focus on here and now for now. It's still a long, long way off.

    Parchment also looks like it was stuck against a wall with a... flathead screw driver? Machinery and Blood screams Bloodborne, but I do agree with you, From needs to not franchise every game they make, even if they're mechanically similar.

    That guy Vaati that makes those long rants about lore on youtube did bring up an interesting idea. The 4th world in Demon's Souls is the Shrine of Storms, the inhabitants are called shadowmen, they are all undead and the skeletons there all use Katanas (this being tied to the Asian looking script on the parchment). In fact, you can get the Uchigatana there along with another special Katana, the Makoto (or something like that). So, Demons Souls prequel about the Shadowmen and the Shrine of Storms? Would be interesting, if only from a story perspective, but I dunno.
