The remake of MediEvil will release in October, Sony confirmed earlier this week. The game has been completely remade from the grave up, blending classic gameplay with improved visuals.
The remake of the game features improved graphics, a new camera system, and a new narrator. The game will also render in 4K resolution.
In the game players step into the bones of Sir Daniel Fortesque, a slightly-inept (and long dead) knight accidentally resurrected by his greatest enemy, the evil sorcerer Zarok. With a second chance to foil his greatest foe, Dan will once again set out to save the kingdom of Gallowmere and earn his place as a true hero.
Voice actor Lani Minella, who is known for her roles in Borderlands and Mortal Kombat, is responsible for the storytelling. For those who still remember the original by heart, developer Other Ocean Interactive has also added a number of nostalgic surprises.
The original MediEvil came out in 1998 for the original PlayStation. The original was re-released in 2005 for the PlayStation Portable, titled MediEvil: Resurrection, and the sequel MediEvil 2 released in 2000.
MediEvil releases on October 25, 2019, for PlayStation 4.
