Regardless of headlining a film and starring in a number of latest live-action reveals, Daredevil’s solely had one probability to headline a online game of his personal. That film tie-in recreation for the Recreation Boy Advance could also be forgotten by most, however at one level, the Marvel character was meant to star in a console earlier than it was finally cancelled.

Spoilers of the Week: July eighth

Earlier within the week, prototype footage of that recreation—Daredevil: The Man With out Worry—surfaced on the web courtesy of recreation preservation web site Hidden Palace. As beforehand reported in 2016 by DidUKnowGaming, Daredevil was supposed for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC from developer 5,000 Ft. Studios and writer Encore Inc (which acquired the sport rights to a number of Marvel characters on the time). The footage beneath reveals Matt Murdock doing what he does greatest: beating up criminals, doing parkour, and tangling with Kingpin, Bullseye, and his on/off flame Elektra. The Catholic guilt presumably wasn’t finalized as a mechanic but on the time of this prototype.

5,000 Ft. (then identified for the Military Males franchise) deliberate to make Daredevil right into a recreation comprised of vignettes which might present iconic moments from the hero’s comedian e book historical past. After the 2003 film was introduced, the sport’s scope shifted to a extra open-world format, which prompted clashes between Marvel and Sony. Whereas Marvel needed to create a recreation that captured Matt Murdock’s essence, Sony was all about gameplay mechanics, and pitched the thought of rail grinding just like the Tony Hawk video games. That…didn’t occur, clearly, and the undertaking was scrapped.

Marvel and Sony finally made up in time to launch a trilogy of rad Spider-Man video games lately, and the comics writer has partnered with quite a lot of builders over the many years. Daredevil himself has continued to be a featured participant amongst many in titles like Marvel Final Alliance 3 and Marvel Strike Pressure. However curiously, this video hit across the identical time that Insomniac has teased one thing Daredevil-adjacent could also be taking place within the studio’s just lately launched Spider-Man 2. (Matt Murdock and his lawyer BFF Foggy Nelson had been title dropped within the 2018 Spider-Man recreation, and within the comics, Daredevil and Spidey are good associates.) When Uncharted inventive director Amy Hennig and Skydance New Media had been revealed to be engaged on a Marvel undertaking, there have been hopes that this could result in a Daredevil recreation, however the studio’s undertaking turned out to be a team-up recreation starring Captain America and Black Panther.

Clearly, the demand for a solo Daredevil recreation (or something that includes him, truthfully) is sort of excessive, and it’s seemingly one thing Marvel is conscious of. The developer who will get the chance to lastly make that occur stays to be seen.
