The creator behind Bloodborne has revealed that his favourite boss creature from the ‘Souls’ series of video games—that’s Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls, and Dark Souls II, in case you didn’t know—is the Old Monk from the original game.
‘I’m actually fond of a great many enemies and bosses from each title," Miyazaki-san told OPM UK. "But let me weed it down to one: the Old Monk."
He added: "This boss utilised a unique (and rather experimental) multiplayer system. I remember facing a lot of opposition to realise the idea. I also designed the boss’ head collar myself."
Bloodborne hit PS4 earlier this month and earned positive reviews from critics, including PSU.com. Be sure to read our verdict on the game if you haven’t already done so.
