Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Classic PlayStation 1 title MediEvil is back in a new remake of the gothic, action-adventure game that is set for release on the PlayStation 4.
Publisher Sony released a gameplay trailer for MediEvil on Wednesday to coincide with Halloween.
The clip compares the remake's enhanced graphics to the original MediEvil, which was released for the PlayStation 1 in 1998. A sequel, MediEvil 2, was released in 2000.
Main character Sir Daniel Fortesque slashes his way through spooky graveyards filled with werewolves, skeletons and demons.
The MediEvil remake, from developer Other Ocean Interactive, is set for release in 2019.
"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," reads the synopsis.
