Bloodborne PS4 PlayStation

Yuka Kitamura has an impressive resume (and plenty of fans), having composed music for games noted for having great music, such as Bloodborne, Dark Souls 3, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Elden Ring, to name a few. The composer made an announcement earlier on X (which still feels weird to write).

After 12 years with the studio, her intentions are clear: to walk the noble path of the freelancer and wander wherever the wind blows, living the carefree life of freedom, adventure, and the occasional bout of existential dread. She even dropped a new demo, and it sounds great, but keep in mind Kitamura wants a change from the usual (incredible) FromSoft fare, so don't be surprised by how relaxing it is.

Kitamura's website details her speciality, which includes orchestral, folk, and easygoing styles of music. It just goes to show how much goes into a single encounter in a FromSoftware game; listen to Lady Maria from Bloodborne's Old Hunters DLC for an example (you could be forgiven for not paying close attention to the strings during that particular boss fight).

What do you think of Kitamura's departure? Is there a particularly memorable track from FromSoftware's discography that sticks with you? Let us know in the comments section below.
