This Bloodborne-like game was apparently around a year in development before Yoshida and the rest of the team moved on to running Final Fantasy 14 A Realm Reborn. It was a “pretty hardcore action game,” according to Yoshida. “If we had continued and Bloodborne had come out first, we would probably be freaking out now,” said Minagawa, one of the people who were involved with the project. “It had the same guns and pistols. And it was in the Gothic style,” Takai said, while Yoshida jokingly said, “Where have I seen that before …?

Some fans are speculating that this may have influenced the design of Final Fantasy 16.
