Sony resurrects MediEvil for PS4


PlayStation Experience 2017 kicked off on December 8 with a stream highlighting several of Sony's upcoming games that are set to launch in 2018.

Sir Daniel and the cult classic hack and slash game have been dying for some sort of revival since MediEvil: Resurrection released back in 2005. And it was: Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy hit PlayStation 4 in 2017, bringing the original three games in the franchise to modern hardware. While details on the project are scarce, the teaser video does state that the game has been created to feature 4K visuals on PS4 Pro, and the few visuals clearly show that it will be as faithful as possible to the original.

In a odd turn of events, a total remaster of the PS1 title MediEvil has been announced during tonight's PlayStation Experience (PSX) event. After many, many years of PlayStation fans absolutely crying out for the PlayStation 1 title to be remastered, Medievil is finally coming to the PlayStation 4.

With more than 60 million PS4 units sold, the company's flagship console is rapidly approaching the lifetime sales of the PS3, which sold 70 million units over its entire life cycle.

In MediEvil 2, which launched on the original PlayStation in 2000, Sir Daniel awakens again 500 years later in Victorian London, where he takes on Jack the Ripper and an evil sorcerer. It is now unknown if this trend will continue or if this could even mean a new MediEvil game sometime in the future.
