MediEvil is without doubt one of the beloved PlayStation classics whose life was sadly minimize quick early. Final yr’s MediEvil PS4 remake resurrected the sequence and introduced a renewed curiosity in Sir Daniel Fortesque’s adventures. Now some cryptic tweets from the sequence’ composer trace that a MediEvil 2 remake may very well be in growth. Whether or not that remake is about for the PS4 someday this yr or coming to the PS5 later is anybody’s guess, however constructive reception and traction to the primary sport appear to have ensured that the sequel is returning as properly.
The SaveMediEvil Twitter account was an lively proponent in bringing the primary sport again to life, and since its launch, has shifted efforts to campaigning for the second sport with the hashtag #ResurrectFortesque2. On February 2, the account merely tweeted out “2.” with no further context. Andrew Barnabas, the MediEvil composer for the unique trilogy and the 2019 remake, replied merely saying “Truly…..”

One other person replied saying that they doubt it’ll occur since “MediEvil Remake didn’t do very properly,” however Barnabas was fast to answer and inform them that they have been incorrect.
I’m sorry you might be incorrect

The SaveMediEvil Twitter account claims that MediEvil Remake gross sales have reached greater than 400,000. (Observe: I can’t discover definitive numbers to corroborate this. The closest I can discover is cumulative distinctive participant counts, which sat at greater than 395,000 in mid-January.) What’s unclear is that if Barnabas’ tweet is just saying the person was incorrect about how properly the sport did, or if he’s additionally hinting that they’re incorrect about doubting a MediEvil 2 Remake will occur. Couple together with his authentic tweet, nevertheless, it begins to look much more possible that MediEvil 2 Remake may very well be in growth.
With all of this being sheerly rumor at the moment, it’s unknown if MediEvil PS4 Remake’s developer Different Ocean could be the identical studio to tackle the duty of remaking the sequel. Given the truth that they know the IP, having labored with the unique sport, I can’t think about that Sony would pull one other studio to develop a MediEvil 2 Remake, except Different Ocean has one thing else within the oven in the meanwhile.
Whilst you’re ready for MediEvil 2 Remake, you possibly can undergo all of MediEvil PS4 Remake’s Misplaced Souls to be able to unlock and play the complete authentic sport in all of its low-poly glory. You may as well buy a premium Degree 52 Studios statue of Sir Dan, although it’s going to set you again a few payments.
You may choose up the primary MediEvil PS4 Remake on Amazon proper now for simply $26.
