Rare has released a short video (above) talking a little about the cancelled title and showing some early character artwork.

The game, Conker: Gettin’ Medieval (incorrectly spelt “Getin’” in the video), was planned for release on the original Xbox and it’s explained during the video it was not a follow up to Bad Fur Day – as was widely believed.

It was to focus on siege warfare and star death, Conker would only make a guest appearance in the title which was to be a set in the Conkers universe, rather than follow the furry character himself.

It was an online multiplayer game with levels that “chained” together featuring cooperative as well as competitive action.

Don’t forget to watch the video above to get a look at what could have been.
