The classic game MediEvil is being remade for PlayStation 4, Sony has revealed through an announcement trailer that provides a sneak peek at the title.
The remake was actually announced at the 2017 PlayStation Experience, but this is the first footage of the remake that we’ve yet seen. MediEvil was originally released in 1998 for the original PlayStation. Developed by SCE Cambridge Studio and published by Sony, it was met with plenty of praise from both critics and consumers for its spooky visuals, music and humor.
Sony has provided a synopsis of the game’s story in a post on the official PlayStation blog and the description of the trailer. The synopsis reads:
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.
Watch the bone-chilling trailer below. The MediEvil remake is planned for a 2019 release.
