Pour one out for Sir Dan
Pesky timezones aside, it’s been 20 years since MediEvil first released on the PSone. Created by Sony’s Cambridge studio – which would go on to be rebranded Guerrilla Cambridge before being shuttered entirely – the action platformer commands a place in the rotten ribcages of most old-school PlayStation fans for its...
"The announcement totally came out of the blue"
The news that Sony is remastering MediEvil, one of its most beloved 32-bit classics, certainly caused quite a stir, and with good reason; the original game was a massive commercial and critical success back in the '90s. However, for two of the key figures behind the 1998 title's development, the...
A royal blunder
MediEvil’s been dormant as a franchise for over a decade, but fans have bridged the gap with various personal art projects over the years. Sir Dan is such a popular character that Deviant Art is awash with sketches and renders of the regal hero – including Clive ‘n’ Wrench creator
"Apparently Dan was something of a sex symbol in France"
With the welcome announcement that MediEvil is getting a 4K remaster on PlayStation 4, we dig deep into the archives to unearth a piece on the making of the PSone original, penned by Editorial Director Damien McFerran many moons ago. Video games are fundamentally about escapism. It’s...
It started at the beginning. Shawn Layden has become infamous for his t-shirts that hold subtle and not-so-subtle secrets, and he was at it again with PSX 2017 by zipping it up in a jacket. At the conference's end, he finally revealed that his apparel of choice for the night points toward a remaster of MediEvil, which will be coming to...
Sir Dan fans speak
Crash Bandicoot’s comeback can partly be attributed to the success of various social media campaigns, as PlayStation fans lobbied both Sony and Activision for the marsupial to make his marvellous return. As it turns out, the N. Sane Trilogy has been one of the better selling titles of the year, rarely straying from the top of...
It's dead, folks
We warned you that that "leaked" MediEvil footage was probably fake, but now its creator has come out and confirmed as much. We'd been speculating internally that the videos looked like they'd been built using Unreal Engine 4, and the maker has since stated that that's the case; it was a bit of a hobby project, then. Writing on...
For as long as this site has been online, there have been rumours regarding a hypothetical MediEvil sequel. Sir Dan Fortesque was a pretty popular character on the PSone, before he got bundled back into his coffin. Sony did allow the star to stretch his bony legs in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, but a full comeback has always seemed...
En garde, Fortesque!
For some reason, Daniel Fortesque from the 1998 PSone classic MediEvil seems to pop up every now and then in surprising ways. He made his way onto the PlayStation Portable in 2005 with a remake of the first game called MediEvil: Resurrection, and even joined the roster of fighters with a sword and shield in hand for
