MediEvil is 20 years old today.
The PlayStation classic launched in Europe on 8th October 1998.

At PlayStation Experience 2017, Sony announced a MediEvil remaster for PlayStation 4, but we’ve heard nothing since. How’s it getting on, Sony?
Did you play MediEvil back in the day? What are your memories of it?
