MEDIEVIL RESURRECTION ™ RISES FROM THE CRYPT TO THE PSP™ (PLAYSTATION®PORTABLE) SYSTEM
Popular MediEvil Franchise Goes Portable With New Levels, Characters, Cinematic Cut Scenes, Mini-Games and Game Sharing
FOSTER CITY, Calif. September 13, 2005 - Sony Computer Entertainment America announced today the release of MediEvil Resurrection™ exclusively for the PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) system. Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Cambridge Studios, MediEvil Resurrection is an action-adventure game that is inspired by the myths, characters, and environments of the popular PlayStation® franchise that encompasses a gothic adventure, coupled with bizarre comical humor. In MediEvil Resurrection, players follow the role of Sir Daniel Fortesque and embark on a journey to defeat the evil Sorcerer Zarok, while interacting with various characters, enemies, weapons, and mini-games that take place in the realm of Gallowmere. In addition, MediEvil Resurrection features wireless multi-player connectivity* via ad-hoc mode and the first game to offer “game-sharing.”
“We are elated to bring a fan favorite and successful selling franchise to PSP™,” said Susan Nourai, director, online and product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America. “MediEvil Resurrection provides a unique new gameplay experience in its first portable installment, leaving gamers in anticipation for more on their PSP™.”
After a record-setting launch and months atop the industry as the leading seller among all game platforms, momentum for the heralded PSP™ is as robust as ever and will be further cemented by its growing library of titles including MediEvil Resurrection.
As players take the role of Sir Daniel Fortesque while they explore Gallowmere, they are reacquainting themselves with many well-loved characters and places from the original MediEvil world - all updated graphically, mechanically, and vocally, as well as the inclusion of new characters, locations, play mechanics and story plots. Sir Dan’s new sidekick, Al Zalam, a streetwise sarcastic genie who is locked inside Sir Dan’s hollow head, offers timely commentary on his successes and failures.
In MediEvil Resurrection, there are more than 100 humorous film-quality cut scenes: introducing characters such as the pedantic Harbor Master of Scurvy Docks and the new-age hippy nightmare, Forrest Witch.
