MediEvil, the 1998 action-adventure hack, and slash is out now on PS4 after having been impressively remastered. The remaster will have some new features that were not present in the original PS1 version! This includes new Collectibles known as Lost Souls. You basically find them and then solve the riddles attached to them. This guide lists the locations of every Lost Soul and shows you how to solve each riddle in MediEvil.
MediEvil Lost Souls Locations and Solutions
The Lost Souls will begin spawning in all levels once you’ve opened the blue chest in the Entrance Hall level. These levels are marked by grey “S” symbols and you can visit them in any order you wish.
The riddles will hint the location of the soul’s final resting place so you must go there and find where to place it. This will be prompted on-screen. Once you do both these tasks, you need to finish the level if you want the progress to be saved. Finding all lost souls and completing their riddles will earn you the following trophies:
- Lost and Found – Find all the Lost Souls.
- Soul Savior – Lay all the Lost Souls to rest.

In the 4th area he Asylum, you’ll have to kill a bunch of foes to open the golden gate. Open the door and get the soul before you walk through it. Once the dragon shows up and helps you finish off the foes, you can leave the room and the soul is laid to rest.

Everyone talks about the Pumpkin King, but no one mentions the other plants. They’re the root of all evil! Always watching… waiting… stalking.

The elevator will take you all the way up to the crow’s nest. Drop the soul there with :tp: and you’ll see the feet of a giant bird flying by. Just walk to the other end of the crow’s nest to lay the soul to rest.
I once was a Captain, but my pirates mutinied, due to my lack of convincing pirate accent. My soul remains trapped in time. Perhaps that Wizard’s big clock can set me free?
Location: Head to the The Ghost Ship and go through the red-rune door. Dive down through the gaps between the nets and you will enter the room that carries the soul.
The Wizard’s clock reference makes the riddle solution pretty obvious. Head to the starting level of the Time Device and hop on to the giant clock. You can open your inventory at the center of it and place the soul there. You also have to set the time in a specific manner; Gold handle to 4, and Silver handle to 2.
It is I, Sir Sloane, the Dragon Smiter. You know how many dragons I’ve smote? Well, none yet. But we can change that! To the dragon statues of Zarok’s hall!
