MediEvil Remake First Gameplay Revealed, Total Remake With 4K Support

Written by Neil Soutter on Wed, Oct 31, 2018 3:18 PM

Cult classic action adventure game MediEvil is back. Originally teased at PSX last year, Sony has unveiled the first gameplay trailer for the MediEvil remake, just in time for Halloween.

For the uninitiated, MediEvil was originally a PS1 game about Sir Daniel Fortesque, or Sir Dan to his friends. Sir Dan sadly popped his clogs while fighting valiantly on the battlefield, but is accidentally resurrected 100 years later by Lord Zarok, an evil sorcerer. Naturally, Sir Dan gears up and heads off to explore Gallowmere and take down Lord Zarok.

MediEvil was always very… PS1. It’s got some basic sword swinging, puzzle solving and adventuring, but it was always a pretty addictive combination back in the day. The MediEvil remake is being developed in-house with Sony in conjunction with Other Ocean Interactive, fully remaking the artwork and giving it a 4K facelift.

MediEvil Remake’s not exactly cutting edge but it does look a heck of a lot better than the original. The art style certainly holds up though, and there definitely aren’t light-hearted yet ghoulishly themed games out there these days.

Sony’s got the IP rights to this one, so MediEvil Remake will be exclusive to PS4 when it launches in 2019.

I wanted to try out this game after seeing the video Caddicarus made. I certainly try to pick this up.

I love that they are bringing back so many beloved games from our childhood, I sincerely hope that Ubisoft will remake the old Rayman Games and and finally bring us the fourth instalment.
