In preparation for the start of next week’s Kickstarter campaign, Publisher Cool Mini or Not (CMON) has dropped a trailer for the upcoming Bloodborne: The Board Game. The trailer melds video game footage with a 3D representation of the board game to show that the devs are sticking close to the source material. It’s a neat effect that you can see for yourself below.

Bloodborne: The Board Game is a miniature-based dungeon crawler that uses deckbuilding to facilitate the character growth seen in FromSoftware games. Each character starts with the same generic deck and slowly gains new cards that will change how they can fight their way through each situation. These new cards come in the form of new weapons and upgraded skill cards. The upgrade path looks very recognizable for players of the video game.

The designers have chosen to use the card-building mechanic as a way to mitigate luck. Many board-game dungeon crawlers use dice for their combat, which introducing that luck element. In the Bloodborne video game, you never lose because of luck. You made a choice to be reckless or misread your enemy and paid the price. By going to a card system, the developers hope to force players into similar situations in the board game.

CMON is turning to the talents of Michael Shinall and Eric M. Lang for this design. Shinall’s previous credits include Rum & Bones (an attempt to make a board game MOBA) and Xenoshyft: Onslaught (another deckbuilder). Lang has made blockbuster hits like Rising Sun and Blood Rage. In addition, he also developed 2016’s Bloodborne: The Card Game. If anyone can make a board game that captures the spirit of Bloodborne, it’s these two.

Bloodborne: The Board Game‘s Kickstarter begins on April 23, 2019.
