MediEvil: Resurrection is a video game for the Sony PSP entertainment system. MediEvil Resurrection is a remake storywise to MediEvil (with a few alterations, such as the Anubis Stone sub-plot, which never appears in the original), but many things, such as level design, characters etc... have changed drastically and some levels have been removed altogether (e.g. the Ant Caves). And unlike before, there is no alternate ending. The player will still go to the Hall of Heroes whether they have got all of the chalices or not. It also features a variety of voice talent, including Tom Baker as the narrator and the Grim Reaper. It was released on September 1, 2005, in Europe and on September 13, 2005 in the United States. It was made available for download from the PlayStation Store in Europe on May 29, 2008 and in the United States on June 26, 2008.

Characters

Sir Daniel Fortesque aka Sir Dan: The captain of the guard who fell in the first wave of arrows at the Battle of Gallowmere. He was unknowingly resurrected by Zarok a hundred years later, and has been given a chance in death to prove himself the hero he never was in life. He is once again voiced by Jason Wilson in English and Kenyu Horiuchi in Japanese respectively, like in the original version.

Zarok: Evil sorcerer who was once part of King Peregrines retinue and was banished for meddling with the dead. Defeated at the battle of Gallowmere, he returned a hundred years later to plague Gallowmere once again. He is voiced by Paul Darrow and Norio Wakamoto in the respective language versions.

Al-Zalam: Supposedly a powerful Genie from the east whose powers were stripped by Zarok, now a bothersome squatter in Sir Dan's skull. He offers advice to Sir Dan and tries to pull off jokes when he gets the chance.

Death: The Grim Reaper himself appears in the game. He is extremely frustrated with Zarok's raising the dead all over, making his job quite difficult. He is fond of Sir Dan and is sort of a father figure to him.

Stone Gargoyles: These normally lifeless statues come to life when approached or struck with one of Dan's weapons. The green gargoyles offer advice but generally make abusive comments towards Dan. The red gargoyles act as vendors for ammunition and repairs. Also the gargoyles do not much resemble those found in Gothic architecture, looking rather more like cartoon characters.

Soundtrack

The music is split into two halves. The cues from the first half are largely reminiscent of a select number of cues from the original game (1 track from the second game was also used), with the addition of extra thematic elements to strengthen and tie them together. The other half of the music is totally original, and written exclusively for this iteration of the franchise. All the music was performed live. The orchestra consisted of around 80 players and was made up of members of the Prague Philharmonic and recorded in Prague on the Barrandov Recording Stage. In addition the score benefits from a 32 piece choir, also recorded in the same venue. This follows in the tradition of Sony Cambridge's previous orchestral game Primal which was also recorded there by the same performers.
