Sony Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden has described the PS4 version of MediEvil as a remake, not a remaster - despite the game being originally advertised using the latter term.
Appearing on PlayStation Blogcast, Layden explained the approach for this new version of the fondly-remembered PS1 game:
“I think there have been some words that might sound alike but mean different things – like remake and remaster. This is a remake. We’ve taken the original game design and we’ve taken a lot of the key art, some of the other attributes of the game design and ethos, if you will. And we’re working with a developer called Other Ocean Interactive, and they are remaking MediEvil in that design – the original MediEvil from PS1. The one that I worked on when I was in Tokyo."
