If you spent some time on the internet this weekend, you may have seen some news about Bloodborne Remastered coming to PC and PS5 in August. The announcement came from what appeared to be a widely known entertainment and gaming news account of someone named Nibellionwho has been on Twitter since May 2012. But the news was completely fake and the account, a Nibellion spoofhas led countless fans to believe that FromSoftware and Sony are working on a remaster of bloodborne†
Developed by FromSoftware and released in March 2015 for PS4, bloodborne is a gothic, Victorian-era inspired action RPG that took the world by storm. It hadn’t same level of commercial success as Elden Ringbut bloodborne continued to score high marks from critics due to its sleek gameplay, atmospheric soundtrack, intriguing world and Lovecraftian themes. For all intents and purposes, bloodborne was a hit among serial fans, with people just looking to return to the world of Yharnam one more time, even after The old hunters DLC launched in November 2015.
That’s what the fake Twitter account allowed NIbellion to pop in and get started bloodborne discourse with fake news. On May 30, NIbellion – notice the capital “I” here – tweeted that a remastered version of bloodborne coming this year. It would include “enhancements” such as 60 FPS, native 4K resolution, and ray-traced reflections, with Sony subsidiaries Bluepoint Games and Nixxes Software collaborating on the project.

I mean, take a look at the tweet above. I’ve already pointed out the misspelled name as a dead giveaway that this is fake news. However, if you look at the PlayStation Blog Link NIbellion shared next to the announcement, you’ll see it’s an archive post from 2015. Clicking the link will take you to a January 2015 blog about bloodbornelifespan. Even before we got to the PlayStation Blog, there were several signs that this NIbellion isn’t the Nibellion we’ve come to know as an industry insider.
But because NIbellion looked like the real deal, people liked to gobble up the lie. Some said it was “the best news ever” while others used morbius memes to joke about trolls. Not everyone fell for itof some people others warn that the news was fake† Even the real Nibellion stepped in to set the record straightsaying he has “none” bloodborne news” for us.
The fake NIbellion, who visits a1 online, told Kotaku via Twitter DMs, he posed as Nibellion because his account is unverified and it’s easy to create a “bootleg version” of his name as it’s full of little i’s and l’s. a1 said he wasn’t trying to talk. He really just wanted to lure “a few” [his] followers maybe a little more’, but the list took longer than expected. Yet a1 . said bloodborne was the obvious game to start a rumor about.

†bloodborne is a game that gets a lot of talk on Twitter,” said a1. †Silent Hill† bloodborneand ‘GTA VI,’ and a few other games that get trend or unfounded rumor almost every month, so the choice was easy for me. bloodborneever since Silent Hill just got a rumor, and i already did GTA VI one, but bloodborne I didn’t, so I thought it would be an easy choice.”
While a1 found the internet’s response to his tweet hilarious, he sincerely hopes for another bloodborne Is in the making.
“Of course, who wouldn’t want a sequel to one of the best games of the last generation,” said a1. “It was my first Fromsoftware game and I’d really like a sequel to it, or even a remaster of the first.”
As for the real Nibellion, he shared: Kotaku via Twitter DMs that he likes to “stay unobtrusive” and has chosen not to provide a more detailed answer. On Twitter, however, it seems that he at least a little disappointed by the fake account.
