Here's our first look at the MediEvil remake

Out 2019.

Sony's published a reveal trailer for the MediEvil remake, which is due out at some point in 2019.

The video, below, compares the original PSone game to the remaster, which is built by #IDARB developer Other Ocean Interactive.

Here's the official blurb:

"MediEvil follows the story of Sir Dan, an unlikely champion who met an unfortunate end on the field of battle. He receives a chance at redemption when his nemesis, the evil sorcerer Lord Zarok, accidentally resurrects him 100 years after that fateful day. Lord Zarok seeks to conquer the Kingdom of Gallowmere, and only the skeletal Sir Dan stands between Zarok's army of the undead and the kingdom he swore to protect."

Writing on the PlayStation Blog, PlayStation chief Shawn Layden said MediEvil for PlayStation 4 was a "full remake" of the original, as opposed to a remaster.

To my eye, the remake looks a little rough around the edges (that framerate!), but the 2019 release window means there's plenty of time for the developers to polish up the project.
