Sony today exposed the very first trailer for the brand-new MediEvil video game, a complete remake of the very first video game that showed up on the PlayStation 20 years back. Bony lead character Sir Dan comes back after almost a years of obscurity– and ideally he’s the very first of a number of his fellows.
MediEvil is among those franchises that is undoubtedly a beloved of its house business, even if it does not precisely have a big part of cultural awareness. Sir Daniel hasn’t headlined a video game considering that 2005, however he did make a look on the Smash Bros-knockoff PlayStation All-Stars Fight Royale ( the last 2 words implied something various at the time), which starred numerous of Sony’s mascot characters.
A few of those characters have not fared so well in the last few years. So if we’re getting a MediEvil remake, why not a couple of more of the All-Stars?
Sure, a few of the icons in concern stay popular and noticeable staples of the video gaming world– Kratos, Nathan Drake, and Heihachi Mishima have all appeared on current-gen consoles– however others have actually slipped off the radar. Nariko of Incredible Sword, Parappa the Rap artist, or perhaps my person Sly Cooper … none have had a huge release in years, however as far as I’m worried, they all should have one.
MediEvil was among the lots of video games left out from the PS One Traditional retro console, and numerous of those likewise snubbed would most likely likewise gain from the remake treatment (Nariko and Sly Cooper weren’t on PS1, however my point still stands). So if Sony demands sticking to simply twenty video games for its retro console, I ‘d wonder to see what other old soldiers they might tug from retirement.
MediEvil for PS4 is coming out at some point next year.
