MediEvil footage confirmed as fan-made fake

2 min read


When something seems too good to be true, it usually is. That’s how Darryn ended up watching a video of old Scandinavian men playing Rugby when he entered his credit card details online to watch “Swedish hookers playing with balls.” Sometimes, the things you want most to be real are the very antithesis. Such is the case with last week’s leaked MediEvil footage.

As pointed out in the comments on the article, It was all a ruse – created in Unreal Engine 4 and made to illicit a response from the internet at large, which it’s most certainly done. Its secondary purpose was to convince Sony that there’s still interest in the skeletal exploits of Sir Dan – which, judging by the online reaction, there certainly is.

Whether or not it’s enough to convince Sony to make a new MediEvil game though, is a whole different question. For those of you interested, the video and related assets were created by Guillermo Moreno, with the help of the Grim Fandago Unreal Engine 4 demo creator.

“First of all, we apologize for giving you hopes to see Medievil and Sir Dan Fortesque in PS4, “ They say on Youtube adding “we didn´t try to piss nobody off or to make neogaf or other gaming sites our victims. We can´t deny that we have fun making it, but it was made out of love for this and other characters from great franchises. We try to catch Sony´s attention and make them understand that lots of people loves this old IPs, and we couldn´t imagine that the response will be so overwhelming. Take this as a wake up call and a mere and humble request to bring them back.”

Here’s an extended look at the fan-created footage.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
