Bloodborne, the action-RPG in development at Dark Souls studio From Software, will release across Japan on February 5.

The release date, announced during a Sony press conference in Japan on Monday, suggests that the PlayStation 4 game could ship at a similar time across the US and UK.

However, Sony has yet to announce a Bloodborne release date outside of Japan, and it’s unclear whether work on localizing the game will impact its western launch date.

Bloodborne was first announced in June at E3 after being leaked under the name Project Beast. The dark and gothic action game, which bears a resemblance to From Software’s critically acclaimed Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls series, is currently a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

Theme support is coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in the upcoming 2.0 and 3.30 firmware updates, Sony announced at its pre-TGS PlayStation press conference in Japan today.

The long awaited feature was demoed during the conference with a theme featuring classic PlayStation mascots, including Toro the PlayStation cat.

While Sony didn’t detail exactly how much customisation would be available to PS4 and Vita owners via themes, PlayStation EU community manager Chris Owen later confirmed via Twitter that PS4 themes would be distributed via the PlayStation Store.

UPDATE: Nintendo provided additional details for this Mario Kart update, which will be coming to the US as well.

Each DLC pack will cost $ 7.99 individually or $ 12.99 if you buy them together. And you’ll be able to pre-order both packs starting tonight with v 2.0 update to the game.

If you pre-purchase both backs, you’ll have immediate access to both the multi-colored Yoshis and Shy Guys. Though if you want to wait for any reason, the additional color options for those characters will unlock after you purchase the second pack.

A few of the new tracks you might notice from the images below are:

  • F-Zero track
  • Excitebike track
  • Animal Crossing track
  • Wario’s Wood track

We don’t have details for the tracks and karts not revealed by the images below, but Nintendo stated that this DLC will not include additional items, abilities, or multiplayer modes.

The original story appears below.

Mario Kart 8 is getting some substantial downloadable content starting in November. New characters, tracks, and karts will be added to the game featuring content from many of Nintendo’s other franchises, including The Legend of Zelda, F-Zero, and Animal Crossing.

This content will come in the form of two DLC packs, which will include:

  • 3 new characters
  • 4 new vehicles
  • 8 new courses (some new, and some old)

Some of the new tracks will be set in Zelda and Animal Crossing locales, while Mario Kart Wii level Wario’s Gold Mine makes a return.

The first of the two packs–The Legend of Zelda pack, coming this November–will include Link, Tanooki Mario, and Cat Peach as characters. The DLC will also include the Blue Falcon from F-Zero as a drivable kart as well as three additional unrevealed karts.

The second pack–the Animal Crossing pack, coming in May 2015–includes the Villager, Isabelle, and Dry Bowser. Nintendo did not reveal karts for this second pack. By buying both packs, which will be available individually for 7.00 GBP or in a bundle, you’ll also get eight different colors for Yoshi and eight different colors for Shy Guy.

Details on the packs were posted to the Nintendo UK online store here and here earlier today. An image for the Zelda pack appears to show Excitebike and F-Zero levels, while the other pack shows off a new, Animal Crossing-themed stage.

We’ll update this story with more details as they’re available, but which of this content are you most excited to try? Are you happy to see Mario Kart supported with such extensive DLC? Let us know in the comments below.
