Now Playing: MediEvil Remastered Coming to PS4 - PSX 2017 Teaser

During the PlayStation Experience 2017 keynote tonight, Sony revealed that a remaster of PS1 action game MediEvil will be coming to PS4.

The company showed a brief teaser trailer announcing the remaster, though it ended with "more details soon." No release window was announced. You can watch the teaser above.

MediEvil originally released in 1998 on the PlayStation. It was re-released (albeit not remastered) on the PlayStation Network in 2007 and got a PSP remake in 2005. It features a Nightmare Before Christmas-like art style and third-person action.

I loved this game and it's sequel back in the day. So atmospheric and just plain fun in an exploration adventure game. I look forward to playing this and hope they do the Victorian London sequel as as well.

I remember playing the demo from the disc in my Playstation magazine. Remember demos? It seemed pretty fun.

Great game, while not the best of the 5th gen games to come out- a remake would be a blast.

Now if they would just remake Final Fantasy Tactics and Xenogears then I would die happy.

I loved that game I would definitely buy a remaster. I don't have a 4k tv but I'm sure it will work in 1080p

Though this wasn’t the best PS1 game it was all I had back then, as I was given a hand me down PS1 along with this game... played it so much! Sir Dan will always have a special place in my heart so I will definitely be getting this

This was one of my favorite O.G. PS games. It had so much personality, like the old N64 Rare game Banjo-Kazooie. The first Spyro was similar, full of life, lots of exploration.

I loved MediEvil on PS1 so I can't wait to play this. I hope they do Spyro or MediEvil 2 next.

Cmon Shaun your telling me there was a HUGER shoutout for this than Spyro!? Look respect to the original but after the massive success of the Nsane trilogy I thought hat was a sir fire announcement.

Good news nonetheless but I would have preferred the latter :(

@ryuburger: One is a Sony owned property that they can remake whenever they want. The other is Activision and they are dickheads.

I'm not super interested if it's a remaster of the PSP game, but I'd be waaay down for a remake of the original on PS4. Or the sequel nobody ever talks about.

@Mogan: I mentioned the sequel just before. Haven't you been paying attention Mogan!? Jeez!

I've been waiting for a sequel to MediEvil 2 since the early sixth generation. This is something at least, but it appears to be truly a remaster and not a remake (publishers like to use both words interchangeably these days), which is a shame, especially because the teaser showcases typography and assets from the the aesthetically bankrupt 2005 remake. I'm saddened by this, but hopefully, it's all a misunderstanding.

The audio clips and the videos in this trailer are from the PSP game, Medievil Resurrection. sounds like they are doing a final fantasy type 0 thing. psp to ps4 port.

@DARREN636: you sir have a good taste for games. Add that list to Overboard, Speed Freaks and Crash Team Racing. Or at the very least release a PS1 emu for PS4 in the vein of ePSXe so I can upscale those beauties to modern day visual quality!

So it's the same game? Or is it a remaster like the new Shadow of the Colossus? Interesting.

@Fartman7998: The new shadow of the colossus is a remake, built from the ground up.

Avatar image for Fartman7998

@Cryptics: I know. But you know how publishers can be vague too. The original trailer for Colossus didn't say "remake" explicitly if I recall correctly. Medievil is a dated game, so I was kinda wondering if simply updating the graphics would be enough.
