The remake of the first MediEvil, which quickly became a success on the PS1, got an important role in Sony‘s State of Play stream.
„Whether you’re avoiding the boulder-spitting gargoyles of the Hilltop Mausoleum, outrunning the menacing farmers of the Scarecrow Fields, or fending off giant worker ants in the Ant Caves, Sir Dan’s certainly got his work cut out for him. But fear not! Although the journey will bring you face to face with hordes of unspeakable enemies, a whole host of heroes will be there to help guide you on your way and provide Sir Dan with an ever-expanding repertoire of weapons and shields to aid him in his quest. Everything from enchanted swords to gigantic hammers, crossbows, throwing knives and axes are at your disposal, but you’ll need to use them wisely, lest you lose your head.
And make no bones about it, even if you’re familiar with Dan’s first outing, everything you remember (and a lot that you don’t!) is back in ways that will make your head spin. In addition to a complete graphical overhaul, an improved camera system, and a brand-new narrator (brought to life by veteran voice actress Lani Minella) we’re adding a whole casket full of secrets to this PlayStation classic that we can’t wait for you to dig up.
We’ll scare up some more details for you leading up to launch, but in the meantime, feel free to crawl on over to PlayStation Store and preorder the game!”, Nick Accordino, a producer at Sony Interactive Entertainment, wrote on the PlayStation Blog.
Only three (or two and a half…?) games were in the series – the first game came out in October 1998. It was developed by SCEE Cambridge (which was later called Guerrilla Cambridge until their closure). The sequel came in April 2000, and in September 2005, MediEvil: Resurrection followed on the PSP. It was the reimagined version of the first game, which was planned for the PlayStation 2 before it was turned into a PlayStation Portable launch title.
MediEvil, which is being developed by Other Ocean Interactive, will launch on October 25, exclusively on PlayStation. There will be a digital Deluxe edition as well, which will contain an in-game armour, the soundtrack, a dynamic theme, a comic, and an artbook. Sir Daniel Fortesque’s return will be a great build up for this year’s Halloween, won’t it?
