MediEvil – Sir Dan is back from the dead, again

Sony has finally offered a proper look at the long promised MediEvil remake, as Sir Dan gets an impressively high-tech makeover.

Thanks to the PlayStation Classic and Crash Bandicoot, PlayStation 1 nostalgia is at an all-time high at the moment, and there’s no sign of any slowdown – especially if you’re a MediEvil fan.

The original game was released in 1998 and was developed by the now defunct Guerrilla Cambridge and the creator of James Pond. It got one sequel and a PSP remake but this new release is a brand new remake with all the 4K bells and whistles the PlayStation 4 can offer.

The PlayStation Blog doesn’t offer much more information than you can glean from the trailer below though, which pins the release date down to sometime next year.

The remake no doubt owes its existence to the success of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which has also inspired the imminent remake of the first three Spyro games.

It also seems to be following Sony’s own lead with the Shadow Of The Colossus remake, although the rather shonky looking frame rate in the trailer suggests there’s a way to go before it reaches that level of quality.

You also have to ask whether MediEvil really deserves this level of attention, as the original was never that successful and had serious problems with its controls and camera.

Not that we want to rain on anyone’s parade, as if you are a fan this is a dream come true – and potentially a precursor to a brand-new sequel.
