MediEvil Remake Gets a New 4K Trailer and Halloweeny Release Date
Last Halloween Sony announced their spooky hack ‘n’ slash classic MediEvil would be getting a full remake, and now they’ve announced the game will launch shortly before this year’s Halloween! A full remake of the 1998 original, the new MediEvil will feature spiffy 4K visuals, a redone camera, new dialogue, and “a whole casket full of [new] secrets.” Seems like Sony is really giving this one the royal treatment. You can check out the new trailer, below.
Looking pretty good, although the framerate seems a little iffy at times? Hopefully developer Other Ocean Interactive gets everything smoothed out for launch! Not sure what MediEvil is all about? It’s been a long time since we last saw Sir Dan, after all! Here’s a brief description courtesy of Sony:
MediEvil follows the story of Sir Daniel Fortesque, a rather 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 shambles onto PS4 on October 25. What do you think? Are you eager to try out this revival, or should Sir Dan have stayed dead and buried?
