That Bloody Roar 5 News Wasn't Real

Some jerk decided to mess with people on an official sounding account.

Bloody Roar's signature thing was characters who were able to transform into animals.

You may not remember Bloody Roar, but you probably remember a fighting series with animals! That was Bloody Roar, and fans were spun into a frenzy on Friday afternoon when a seemingly official Twitter account from developer Hudson Soft declared Bloody Roar 5 a reality.

Just days later, the news has been debunked; whoever's in control of that account post-Konami takeover was simply screwing with people.

"Sorry people," read an update just hours ago. "Just wanted to show @Konami that their is still fans of #BloodyRoar."

Dream another day, Bloody Roar fans.

Bloody Roar was (is?) a fighting franchise published by Hudson Soft, starting with an arcade release in 1997. Bloody Roar 4 was released on 2003 on PlayStation 2.

What a tragedy.

@Rawrnosaurous: don't make a habit of something you have a thin grasp on yourself. In other words, something about glass houses.... #grammar

Oh no my Bloody Roar 5, now what will I do.

Edited by BulletConcerto

Bloody Roar was an interesting series, but really, when was the last time Konami made or published a fighting game? That's really what should have set off the alarm bells. Activision and Hudson published 3 and 4 respectively on ps2. That and the fact that the fighting genre hasn't made that big a comeback for the real niche ps1/ps2 games to be dusted off.

Cue the "this isn't news" cretins.

Sucks for the dudes that created threads saying "I'm so excited!".

Bloody Roar 4 was kinda weird, but I've played SO MUCH Bloody Roar 2 you would not believe. BR 3 is also pretty great.

Posted by Dragonblade

What? No Bloody Roar 5?!

This is an outrage.

Posted by drac96

*string of curse words*

I really want them to make another one!

Posted by ZackHoagie

Well fuck, that dashes my hopes of Waku Waku 8.

I unapologetically love Bloody Roar 2, Bakuryu was my go-to character in that game. His dashing mole-drill attack was pretty badass.
 
I don't think I'd have high hopes for new installment here in 2011 anyways, but a boy can dream.

Posted by AxleBro

bloody roar 4 was so bad..... as long as they make is like 1-3 it will be a good game. but they wont give it a try.

Whatever, I used to love these games when I was younger. Though that may or may not be nostalgia talking.

It doesn't take much to fool you 'newsmen'.

Posted by FateOfNever

This news makes me sad. I mean, even if it had been real I didn't picture the game ever ACTUALLY coming out, but, it makes me sad all the same.
