No GravatarSony has revealed that their upcoming remake of Shadow of the Beast on PlayStation 4 will contain the original Amiga version as a bonus.


As fans of the original, we wanted to make sure that we did everything we could to give new players that same experience that inspired us. To that end we’ve implemented a full emulation of the original game as an unlockable bonus! So you get the entire original game playable on your PS4 included within the new Shadow of the Beast!

It’s something of a notoriously difficult game, so we’ve added an infinite lives mode and some other helpful features that should give you a fighting chance of reaching the end — these can be disabled for anyone brave enough!

We know music is incredibly important to the atmosphere of Shadow of the Beast. The incredibly talented Ian Livingstone has produced a fantastic dynamic soundtrack specifically to complement our take on this universe, with each level getting its own theme and the music escalating as the fighting increases in intensity.

In his pursuit of finding the right sounds for the game, he has investigated many unique instruments to keep the haunting and alien sound that helps define this universe. Fans of the 1989 game’s music will notice lots of elements and themes familiar to them that are subtly woven into the compositions they hear.

The original game was a classic but indeed, notoriously difficult. Sony is putting out a lot of effort to make sure their revival of the series is well received and including not only the original, but the original with additional modes to entice new players, is a good step. I myself am very much looking forward to this game and I hope you are all as well.
