In a strange turn of events, a total remaster of the PlayStation One title MediEvil has been announced during tonight’s PlayStation Experience (PSX) event.
Sir Daniel and the cult classic hack-and-slash game have been dying for some sort of revival since MediEvil: Resurrection released back in 2005. Now, the game has the opportunity to find new life with a 4K remaster from the ground up, similar to the Crash Bandicoot trilogy earlier this year.
The last time player’s saw the armored skeleton was as a guest character in 2012’s Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The announcement came as a last minute stinger for the PSX kick-off event, when Sony CEO Shawn Layden revealed that he was wearing a MediEvil shirt under his jacket.
Details were incredibly limited as the only footage shown was a short teaser featuring Sir Daniel’s classic muffled narration. The only indicator of more information came with the “more details coming soon” text that closed out the short trailer.
