The PlayStation Experience, which took place on December 9 this year, had seen an unexpected announcement from Shawn Layden: the return of MediEvil, as a remastered edition for PS4. We still know relatively little about remastered, besides the fact that will turn into 4k. The news was kept hidden with care, and with great results: in fact, not even the creators of the original MediEvil, Jason Wilson and Chris Sorell, were aware of the scoop.
Sorell said the announcement came "out of nowhere" for him, and that he has many questions - such as who is working on it, and what version of MediEvil has been chosen for remastering. More importantly: if there are time and budget to work in the right way.
Jason Wilson, the lead designer of the original MediEvil, said he only came to know about the ad of Spanish fans on Twitter. At first Wilson thought it was a fan initiative, for a short film or for an unofficial remake. Then he found out that the announcement was actually "100% Sony" and he enjoyed it, but also made it happy: "after all it was the happiest time I spent in the videogame sector, and I'm proud of our work on MediEvil. "
