Last year at PSX 2017, Sony announced that a MediEvil remake was in development. Details on the game’s remake have been scarce until today, when the first trailer for the MediEvil remake was released on PlayStation Blog.

Check out the first trailer for the MediEvil remake below: 

Completely remade from the grave up!

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.

PlayStation Blog had some more to say about the game: 

Whether you picked up the original or never heard of the original, we know you’ll love the sword swinging, perilous puzzles and enchanting environments. Brought back to life by our International Software Development team in partnership with Other Ocean Interactive, this a full remake of the original PS1 classic – with all of the scarecrows, zombies, werewolves, and mace-wielding knights lurking in the kingdom with more detail and personality than ever before.

We’ll exhume more information about MediEvil in the upcoming months, so stay tuned to PlayStation.Blog.

From Sir Dan and all of us here at PlayStation: Happy Halloween!

Halloween is definitely a fitting day to unveil this game’s trailer. It’ll be interesting to see when it releases, though at this point I’d say a 2018 release date is out of the question.
