The MediEvil remake that was announced last year has finally gone gold, according to a Twitter screenshot from its developer, Other Ocean. The game is set to release on October 25 exclusively for the Playstation 4. The game is a remake of the original MediEvil from 1998 brought up to modern standards.
The game tells the story of the undead knight Sir Daniel Fortesque, who gave his life to stop an evil sorcerer that has returned a hundred years after his defeat. However, Sir Dan has also risen from the grave, and must now stop the sorcerer in order to prove that he is a true hero after all.
The game is only the latest release in a variety of vintage Playstation games, with various other remakes such as the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Hopefully, this game will be just as much of a success as those two previous games.
The MediEvil remake coming in October is actually the second reimagining of the original MediEvil game. Back in 2005, the game was remastered and ported to the PSP as “MediEvil: Resurrection”, which was a reimagining of the original game and also added in a wise-cracking genie named Al-Zalam. That game received mixed reviews, but hopefully this remake won’t.
We’ve seen a good amount of gameplay from the game in the ten months since it was originally revealed, and it looks amazing, and in general looks like the perfect sort of comedically spooky game that you can play around Halloween.
Both if you were a MediEvil fan when the game first released, or are hopping onto a variety of remastered games like Crash and Spyro and picking up MediEvil to boot, you’ll be able to pick up the MediEvil remake when it comes out on October 25, exclusively for the Playstation 4.
