[UPDATE] Remember The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion for PSP? Well, now you can see it in action

UPDATE:

Well, that didn’t take long. ZeniMax has pulled the footage, so sadly it’s unvailable for viewing. However, it has emerged that one fan with access to the game’s unfinished code is planning on releasing the game for those with homebrew-equipped PSPs.

ORIGINAL STORY:

The chaps at Unseen64 have unearthed some comprehensive footage of Bethesda’s canceled PlayStation Portable fantasy-RPG, The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion.

The companion title to 2007’s The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for PlayStation 3, Travels would have taken the iconic franchise into portable territory for the first time, and was in development at Climax Group London throughout 2005 and 2006.

However, the demise of the PSP lead to the project being scrapped, despite much of the work having been completed. Travels would have boasted a full-fledged game world taking players to other locations outside of Cyrodiil, and the Dark Brotherhood’s Lucien Lachance was also due to make an appearance in the story.

In addition, Climax had planned to implement over 180 quests in Travels, including those available as part of a guild similar to the main game. As you can see from the footage below, the game’s combat system was fully in place, with players battling some familiar foes such as Daedra, Scamps and Giant Rats. 

Take a look at the game in action.
