Shadow of the Beast - Gamescom 2013 Announcement Trailer
Take a look at the announcement trailer for Shadow of the Beast, revealed during the Sony Conference at Gamescom 2013.
Wow I didn't expect to see this game again. I have beaten the original Amiga 500 title numerous times. I even have a playthrough on my YT channel.
The music and graphics were epic for the time. I believe it was 1989.
Shadow of the Beast!!!!? one of my most memorable hardest games of all time... looks like its gonna be a GoW style action game... but its only a trailer.. hope Im wrong...
The original game was praised for it's graphics and nothing else. Can't see any reason why would anyone remake it.
I'm very sceptical. Just the mediocre cgi vid shown. I do remember the original series and I have a hard time seeing why this should be remade at all. It was a graphically impressive game at the time it was made and it was a decent game but I can't see how it would be interesting to play it today in some so-so HD remake.
If they must remake it then I suggest the third game in the series for use on tablets.
Nevertheless It wil be interesting to see the final result although I've been disappointed by all remakes of old Amiga classics so far.
Music needs to be as good as it was on the Amiga. Doesn't sound like that's the case.
Also, that looked remarkably like a PS1 FMV.
