Sony Interactive bosss Shawn Layden appeared on yet another episode of the PlayStation Blogcast to reveal that a trailer for MediEvil on PlayStation 4 will debut on October 31, along with sharing some additional details.
"I think there have been some words that might sound alike but mean different things – like remake and remaster," Layden said. "[MediEvil] is a remake." Layden announced that Sony is working with Other Ocean Interactive, who helped develop games like Rick and Morty VR, and are taking original key art and game design to remake MediEvil.
That means MediEvil on PS4 could go beyond a graphical update, though it will still be consistent with the "ethos" and design of the original game. Layden also revealed that Sony and Other Ocean are "working with some of the talent that were originally associated with [MediEvil] 20 years ago, so we're making sure that we're keeping it real, keeping it to the original intent of the creators."
MediEvil PS4 was announced at last year's PlayStation Experience by Layden himself. There will however not be a PlayStation Experience this year, instead we can probably expect to see some new PlayStation info at Paris Games Week. The other promised feature from last year's PSX, username changes, is coming out to keep Sony's promise it would be live by the time of the next PSX.
