This is awesome that Telltale added The Jersey Devil! For some reason in the trailer it looks like someone or maybe Bigby attacked The Jersey Devil. What do you guys thinks? Will there be a fight between The Jersey Devil???? :)

    Probably. Oh I grew up hearing those stories! Never went out after dark as a kid! Hope Bigby kicks his ass!!!
  • That would be really unintersting to fans outside of the states.
  • I never heard of the Jersey Devil... What the story behind it? =)
    • The Jersey Devil is a legendary creature or cryptid said to inhabit the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey, United States. The creature is often described as a flying biped with hooves, but there are many different variations. The common description is that of a kangaroo-like creature with the head of a goat, leathery bat-like wings, horns, small arms with clawed hands, cloven hooves and a forked tail. It has been reported to move quickly and often is described as emitting a "blood-curdling scream."[1][2]

      The Jersey Devil has worked its way into the pop culture of the area, lending its name to New Jersey's team in the National Hockey League, and appeared on an early episode of The X-Files.

      I copied that from wikipedia.
      If you want more information about the creature, go check the wikipedia page by yourself.
  • Are we sure its the Jersey Devil? Kind of thought it was a gargoyle. I found this on wikipedia.

    Legend of La Gargouille

    A French legend that sprang up around the name of St. Romanus ("Romain") (AD 631–641), the former chancellor of the Merovingian king Clotaire II who was made bishop of Rouen, relates how he delivered the country around Rouen from a monster called Gargouille or Goji. La Gargouille is said to have been the typical dragon with batlike wings, a long neck, and the ability to breathe fire from its mouth. There are multiple versions of the story, either that St. Romanus subdued the creature with a crucifix, or he captured the creature with the help of the only volunteer, a condemned man. In each, the monster is led back to Rouen and burned, but its head and neck would not burn due to being tempered by its own fire breath. The head was then mounted on the walls of the newly built church to scare off evil spirits, and used for protection.[4] In commemoration of St. Romain, the Archbishops of Rouen were granted the right to set a prisoner free on the day that the reliquary of the saint was carried in procession (see details at Rouen).
  • He actually appeared in the comics already in Jack of Fables. But he was a background character with no lines
