Shadow of the Beast Remake Announced for PlayStation 4

Posted on August 20, 2013 AT 03:26pm

A reboot of the 1989 Amiga side-scroller Shadow of the Beast was announced for PS4 today at Gamescom.

Beyond the CG teaser trailer (embedded below), no other details about the game were revealed. It seems, however, to have retained the spirit of the now outdated original.

Said original told the story of Aarbron, who was turned into a warrior-monster by “the evil beast lord Maletoth.” After witnessing his father’s execution, Aabron regains his lost memories and begins a quest for vengeance against Maletoth. The original spawned two sequels in 1990 and 1992 respectively.

Shadow of the Beast was also ported to SNES and Sega Genesis. The original game was developed by Reflections Interactive, now known as Ubisoft Reflections, the studio behind the Driver series.
