MediEvil Remake Gameplay Revealed Total Remake With 4K Support
MediEvil fans will get their first look at the full remake of PlayStation classic today 31 October 2018 according to Shaw Layden, chairman of Sony. Despite being advertised as a remaster, MediEvil is a full remake and will use all the power of the current generation of PlayStation consoles.
MediEvil will still feature some of the memorable key art, game design ideas and ethos and it’s been crafted in collaboration with the development team called Other Ocean Interactive. Appearing on the Play Station Blogcast 311, Layden explained that they’re still in touch with the original development team Guerilla Cambridge, despite the new studio working on the game.
The series is famous for its undead knight protagonist that was inspired by Tim Burton’s animated musical The Nightmare Before Christmas. Back then, the game was praised for its story and graphics but criticized for clunky controls and disjointed level design.
MediEvil Remake’s not exactly cutting edge but it does look a heck of a lot better than the original. The art style certainly holds up though, and there definitely aren’t light-hearted yet ghoulishly themed games out there these days. Sony’s got the IP rights to this one, so MediEvil Remake will be exclusive to PS4 when it launches in 2019.
