Remember how we promised we’ll share the trailer and release information for the MediEvil remake for PlayStation 4? Well, we’re happy to say that we have what you’ve been eagerly waiting for that’ll make your Halloween day even better. Witness the resurrection of Sir Daniel Fortesque in all of his glory in the first spooky trailer for the remake.
If you’re out of the loop on what MediEvil is all about, Shawn Layden, chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios (who also worked on the original MediEvil), shared an overview of its story in a PlayStation Blog post:
“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.”
In the blog, Layden also clarified that the remake is a “full remake” of the original PlayStation MediEvil game. From the looks of the trailer, it seems like the remake will make die-hard fans of the original happy, but it’ll also be a horrifyingly good introduction for those that yet to play MediEvil.
The remake is coming sometime in 2019 and is being developed by Other Ocean Interactive and PlayStation’s International Software Development team.
Author’s Take: Based on the trailer, the MediEvil remake looks like it’ll be a true remake of the original, which makes me oh so happy.
