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'.
