This Samurai Jack Style Bloodborne Trailer is Absolutely Amazing

Bloodborne Cartoon

There’s no Bloodborne series in on the way, as far as we know at least, but this fan intro for an animated series based on the game is really something else.

The short clip, created by artist Anthony Berardo, emulates Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky’s emulation style and throws in appearances from a range of characters and beasties. If it wasn’t for all the blood, you could be forgiven for thinking it was Adult Swim’s own take on From Software’s gloomy game.

Blood? Yes, this clip doesn’t shy away from showing Bloodborne’s cosmic horror and associated gore, whereas Samurai Jack’s fights were typically bloodless, not least because a lot of the opponents were robots. But when you consider how many people work on an episode of shows like Samurai Jack it’s remarkable Berardo was able to put this out on his own.

You can check out the full clip below, and if you know anyone who happens to work at Adult Swim, or is the binman of the cousin of the woman who walks Genndy Tartakovsky’s dog, give them a nudge.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
