Dan Fortesque - "Back from the dead!"

Well he may never have gotten an official sequel after MediEvil 2 but it looks like Sir Daniel Fortesque, hero of Gallowmere, has been resurrected one more time for Platstation All-Stars Battle Royale.

You can see a video of Sir Dan in action here...

A few people have emailed me to ask me what I think to Dan appearing in the game and what do I think to this iteration of him? My answer is that I think he looks mighty fine, he looks more like "Resurrection Dan" than the original games but that is no bad thing in my book.
Having had nothing to do with this game or this iteration of Dan I couldn't tell you if they have used my original voice from the previous games for this version of Dan.

EDIT - They didn't, he sounds more like the Swedish chef from the Muppet Show than Dan Fortesque, not nearly angry or vocal enough for the old school Dan. :)

I think most of the original team (who have subsequently moved on from Sony) would be surprised if they had learned back in 1996 that a game character they were working on would be appearing in a game in the year 2012! It's good to see the old fella back, all be it in a cameo role.
