*UPDATE* Sad News for all you MediEvil fans out there; The footage has been confirmed as a fake fan-made demo. Sad Times for fans of Fortesque in deed. =(
A Recent Rumor has started to circulate online suggesting that Sony is gearing up to resurrect their Action/Adventure Horror series; MediEvil on the PS4.
Very recently, A slew of new images have circulated online which seem to suggest that PS1 Action/Adventure series MediEvil is making a comeback on the PlayStation 4. The images come from twitter user BLUE_EYES (@RIESGOYFORTUNA) which seem to show off Protagonist; Sir Daniel Fortesque and some of the scenery of the supposed MediEvil title which is being hinted at getting an official reveal at E3 next month. The images are below;
In addition to this the same Twitter user posted 2 videos showing supposed footage with each video lasting a few seconds each.
As previously stated, None of this has been officially confirmed by Sony as of this point and so you must take this with a huge grain of salt however this wouldn’t be the first time a Sony exclusive has been leaked before an event with Bloodborne being leaked around this time last year (Under the name Project Beast) and of course, Street Fighter V before PlayStation Experience in December.
MediEvil was a video game series that primarily only saw release on the PlayStation 1 and was set in the time of knights in Britain in a small town called Gallowmere. The games revolved around Sir Daniel Fortesque; A Supposed Hero knight who due to his heroics being a lie is brought back from the dead to combat the evil sorcerer Zarok who brings back an army of the dead to wipe out Gallowmere once and for all. The series has since had a remake of the first game released on the PSP aswell as Sir Daniel Fortesque appearing in Sony Mascot Brawler; PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale back in 2012 however other than that; the series hasn’t received much credit.
As mentioned above; All of this is rumor at this point and you should take it with a huge grain of salt however if the news is true then we could be seeing the return of a classic. In the meantime, check out the trailer for the original 1998 game below.
