Sony Interactive Entertainment released today the reveal trailer for the much awaited MediEvil remake for the PlayStation 4.
Following its announced back in 2016, we haven’t heard anything about the MediEvil remake until today. Built from the ground up, MediEvil for the PlayStation 4 is a total remake featuring brand new graphics, trophies, 4K support, and more. The puzzles, locations, and characters you know from the game twenty years ago remains intact.
Here’s a statement of Sony via the PlayStation Blog:
Sir Daniel Fortesque first shook off his premature burial 20 years ago and has had a dedicated fan base ever since. We believe those of you who come to this title anew will find the bones of the story remain strong.
MediEvil follows the story of Sir Dan, an unlikely champion who met an unfortunate end on the field of battle. He receives a chance at redemption when his nemesis, the evil sorcerer Lord Zarok, accidentally resurrects him 100 years after that fateful day. Lord Zarok seeks to conquer the Kingdom of Gallowmere, and only the skeletal Sir Dan stands between Zarok’s army of the undead and the kingdom he swore to protect.
Whether you picked up the original or never heard of the original, we know you’ll love the sword swinging, perilous puzzles and enchanting environments. Brought back to life by our International Software Development team in partnership with Other Ocean Interactive, this a full remake of the original PS1 classic – with all of the scarecrows, zombies, werewolves, and mace-wielding knights lurking in the kingdom with more detail and personality than ever before.
MediEvil is one of my most favorite PlayStation games to release on the original PlayStation. Seeing Sir Dan once again in glorious 4K resolution is always a pleasure.
There’s currently no release date yet for the MediEvil remake but it’s scheduled for release sometime in 2019 exclusively for the PlayStation 4. Once Sony announces a definite release date, we’ll let you know.
