PlayStation Underground came out with a comparison video, which allows us to put the PS1 original of MediEvil right next to Other Ocean’s creation.
„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. (Again.)
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,” the devs wrote a few months ago of MediEvil, which could indeed be called one of the classics of the PS1 even today. (Which is why it quickly got a sequel, and we wouldn’t be surprised if Sony ends up with a remake of that as well if the first one sells well.)
We don’t have to wait much for the return of Sir Daniel Fortesque: the skeleton knight is out on October 25, exclusively on PlayStation 4. (That day will be tumultuous: The Outer Worlds (except Switch), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and even the recently discussed Fallout Legacy Collection is out the same the day.) The comparison is pretty good – the PS1 original looks decent even today.
