The Beast is ready to be unleashed on PS4 in May and we can hardly wait!
By Saad Dada
Shadow of the Beast will be available at the PlayStation Store on May 17. This, according to Attack of the Fanboy, is actually a “reimagining” of the original game. Heavy Spectrum’s founder and CEO, Matt Birch, has said; “We’ve finally reached the point where we have to stop putting things into the game – the last tweaks to combat have been made and the final Easter eggs are hidden for you to find. So now we are focused solely on fixing bugs and getting Shadow of the Beast ready to appear on PlayStation Store.” A trailer for the hotly-anticipated title, known as the Beast trailer, can be accessed at the following link:
Birch further goes on to say that “our small team has been using the extra time to the fullest – we’ve been able to push the game to a solid 60fps throughout, something we feel passionate about as fans of the fighting genre. With the increased response time that comes with this we’ve been fine tuning the combat experience even more; upgrading Aarbron to the full extent of his abilities and equipping him with some of the mystic artifacts that you find will really add much more depth to the gameplay. It feels quite different to other combat-adventure games, but hopefully people will find it very rewarding!”
Shadow of the Beast was released back in 1989 by Psygnosis on Commodore 64. It was later released on Sega Genesis. As with most games of that era, it was a side-scrolling beat-em-up that has become a classic. Two further sequels were released as well. The remake looks excellent, and the upgrades in visuals, and graphics make are mouth watering. We cannot wait to see how the remake turns out. Based on the trailer, we have very high hopes.
