The rebooted Shadow of the Beast, based on the 1989 Commodore Amiga original, is less than a month away from its PlayStation 4 release. However, developer Heavy Spectrum Entertainment Labs has released a five-minute, action-packed trailer showcasing the litany of abilities and abilities players can expect to see. The game (based on the trailer) seems to mix equal parts arcade, fighting, platforming, and puzzle, in a way rarely explored as in-depth with many releases.

Shadow of the Beast launches exclusively on PlayStation 4 on May 17, 2016 — checkout the gameplay trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments:
