Sony’s MediEvil finally received some new information last week as SIE Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden confirmed a gameplay reveal for October 31st. Over on the official PlayStation Twitter, a more specific time was provided for the reveal – it takes place at 7 AM PT today. An accompanying Jack-o’-lantern that resembles Sir Daniel’s face was also provided.
Along with the gameplay reveal date, it was announced that MediEvil would be a remake of the 1998 PlayStation classic and not a remaster. It’s in development at Other Ocean Interactive, with Guerrilla Cambridge members who worked on the original also involved. Perhaps the latest gameplay reveal could provide a release date as well.
Rumours pegged the initial remaster announcement as including the second game as well. However, with the increased scope and focus on developing a remake, that may not be happening. It’s not the worst news in the world though, given the project’s new scale. And who knows – if the remake is successful on PS4, we may see more of Sir Daniel in the future.
The date is set. See you tomorrow at 7 AM PT for your first look at gameplay from MediEvil for PS4! pic.twitter.com/Ux6oX9ZiCZ
