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 whimsical presentation and vibrant visual style.
Sony did, of course, announce a remaster at PlayStation Experience last year, but we haven’t heard a peep from protagonist Sir Daniel Fortesque since. There’s been some speculation that this may merely be an upgraded version of the PSP remake, although many are hopeful that it will get the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy treatment. Given how little we’ve heard, we’re actually expecting the latter.
Whatever the case, 9th October is worth acknowledging – the classic adventure game is no longer a teenager. Hopefully we get more news on the PlayStation 4 version soon – it’s time for Sir Dan to rise from his grave!
