A 5-year old has just beaten the notoriously difficult souls like, Bloodborne. We spoke with his father about how it came to pass.
Ezra Fox is coming for the crown. The 5-year old phenom just beat Bloodborne, the notoriously hard PS4 game by FromSoftware. As documented on his dad Robbie’s Twitter feed, Ezra has sliced, slashed, and dodged his way through one of the most difficult souls likes in gaming history. We spoke with Robbie about his son’s achievement, what motivated them to attempt this audacious undertaking and what kind of trouble they ran into along the way. Read on below!
Goomba Stomp: So Robbie, what made you think your son had it in him to tackle Bloodborne?
Robbie Fox: Ezra always loves watching me play my games. He has watched me play Sekiro, Dark Souls 1 and 3, Demon’s Souls Remake, and most recently Bloodborne. He would constantly ask me if he could try, and for a while, I would not allow it. But one day, I decided to just see how he would handle the opening section of Bloodborne. He did surprisingly well, so I let him just keep playing until it got too hard. But he never wanted to stop playing!
GS: How long did it take Ezra to beat the game?
Robbie: With my help of showing him where to go, he was able to finish the main game in 21 hours over a time span of 3 weeks.
GS: Were there any bosses he really struggled with?
Robbie: The bosses that gave him the most trouble were Father G, Rom, and Shadows of Yharnam. The shadows were the ONLY boss he needed help from a Summon.
GS: Bloodborne can be a tough game to navigate. Did Ezra struggle with where to go and how to get there?
