MediEvil’s been dormant as a franchise for over a decade, but fans have bridged the gap with various personal art projects over the years. Sir Dan is such a popular character that Deviant Art is awash with sketches and renders of the regal hero – including Clive ‘n’ Wrench creator Rob Wass’ model, which ended up in the recent reveal trailer for the franchise’s forthcoming PlayStation 4 remaster.

The evidence is irrefutable, as Wass’ work overlaps perfectly with the silhouette seen in the trailer:

We spoke to Wass, and he told us that Sony never contacted him to ask permission for the artwork. He’s not angry, however – in fact, he told us that he’s humbled that the platform holder was able to mistake his render for something more official. Nevertheless, the manufacturer may want to hook him up with a free copy of the game when it launches. Just sayin'.

In the meantime, you can find out about Wass’ current project through here. And you can learn more about the history of MediEvil in our Making Of feature.
