MediEvil PS4 Coming This Fall
The PS4 remake of MediEvil has been confirmed for an October 25th, 2019 release date.
Sony had previously said that yesterday’s State of Play episode would have an “extended look” at the updated PS1 classic and that promise was most certainly kept.
The latest trailer begins with some background info on how Sir Daniel Fortesque sacrificed himself defending the Kingdom of Gallowmere from the evil sorcerer, Lord Zarok.
Here’s some more story info:
“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.”
As expected, the updated graphics are a huge leap over the 1998 original. The game is being developed by Other Ocean Interactive, a team known for the PS4 version of Thimbleweed Park and the New 3DS version of Minecraft.
Back in October, we also found out that this isn’t just a simple remastering effort, it’s a full-blown remake. Sony Worldwide Studios chairman, Shawn Layden, also said that they are working with some of the original developers for this project.
“We’re working with some of the talent that [was] originally associated with the title 20 years ago”, he explained. “So we’re making sure that we’re keeping it real, we’re keeping it to the original intent of the creators.”
