Shadow of the Beast reboot coming exclusively to PS4

Shadow of the Beast is being rebooted for PS4. Amiga fans take note.

The reveal trailer was shown at Sony's gamescom event and it showed the lead character hacking his way through enemies with a variety of weapons.He then made shadow clones to him him fight a giant behemoth. It looked out of step with the original game and more like God of War.

The original version was released for the Commodore Amiga but the game has been ported to many other systems.

Enter Survival mode to put yourself to the test, against increasingly cunning enemies in endless visceral combat.

The game is in development at Heavy Spectrum and its release date through PSN - exclusively for PS4 - is to be announced.
