First announced at PlayStation Experience 2017, MediEvil is from-the-ground-up remake of the PlayStation 1 classic title. This news was confirmed by Shawn Layden, chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios, via a PlayStation Blogcast.
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.
Some screens were also released by Sony via their blog.
The game is being developed by Other Ocean Interactive, with some previous employees of original developer SCE Cambridge Studio (now Guerrilla Cambridge) also on board. Other Ocean will also be working with other Sony internal teams to bring the remake of the original MediEvil to PS4.
No set date for the game yet, but it’s earmarked for 2019.
