We learned recently that more news on the PS4 iteration of Sony’s MediEvil would be arriving soon and that has now come to fruition.
During this week’s episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, Sony’s Shawn Layden appeared on the program to talk a bit more about the upcoming reimagining of 1998’s MediEvil. Over the course of the conversation, Layden announced that a new trailer for the game is slated to release next week on, of course, Halloween. This will be the first trailer we have received for the project since its unveiling last year at PlayStation Experience.
In addition, Layden clarified that MediEvil for PS4 will be a full remake and not just a simple remaster. “This is a remake,” clarified Layden. “We’ve taken the original game design and we’ve taken a lot of the key art, some of the other attributes of the game design and ethos, if you will.”
Layden continued by also announcing that the developer of the project is that of Other Ocean Interactive. He also revealed that members of the original development team from 20 years ago have also been consulted for the project to ensure that they get it right.
On paper, this remake sounds promising and as someone who never played the original game, I’m excited to see more of MediEvil soon. When the new trailer drops next week on Halloween, we’ll, of course, have it posted here on DualShockers.
