Some videos have appeared on NeoGAF which have quickly ignited rumours of a MediEvil revival
MediEvil, like Half-Life 3, has been often rumoured to be in development with rumours surfacing every so often to suggest that Sony is preparing to relaunch the series and though nothing has actually come of the rumours, we’re pretty happy to entertain the thought, especially when the concept videos, which we’re guessing are fake, look this great.
A handful of videos have surfaced on NeoGAF of a purportedly “work in progress” build of a new MediEvil game, a game made popular on the PSOne and was re-released on the PSP as far back as 2005. The game consisted of two main titles, MediEvil and MediEvil 2, the first launching in 1998 and the other in 2000, so fifteen years later the game has to make a return, right? Probably not. The two videos, which have since been made private were pretty well done, there was just one little snag.
The two very short videos were pretty well made and showed the game’s boney protagonist Sir Daniel Fortesque plodding through an eerie graveyard. It was all pretty well polished and suitably “next gen” the only problem was the way the character moved about the scene, it just felt a little.. janky.

Above is one of one of the very short videos re-uploaded by a NeoGAF, and while it all looks pretty enough, it just doesn’t feel right. Also it doesn’t help that rumours about a MediEvil revival surface as often as I eat breakfast which to be fair isn’t that often, but it’s often enough. Another point to note is that while Bloodborne leaked in a similar manner, the videos were removed from sites like YouTube and Vimeo, these videos have just been made private, assuming that the person who created the videos wanted to offer the illusion of the videos being taken down.
Apparently according to the thread, the person who originally leaked the footage will be showing more.
If it’s fake, it’s a pretty good one.
