A new batch of MediEvil trophies has been discovered on the PS Store, suggesting that yet another version of the game is about to hit PS Plus in the near future. This new MediEvil PS1 platinum trophy has revealed an identical trophy list to the PS4 remake of the game, yet the art is undeniably for the PS1 original (which isn't currently available on PS5 or PS4). So, who's ready for more MediEvil? It might not be one of the best PS Plus games, but it's certainly one of the most PS Plus games.

MediEvil gets a third platinum trophy on PS5 and PS4

Our scanners spotted the new MediEvil trophy list on the backend of the PS Store, which comes with hero art containing the original PS1 logo for the game and also new art for each of the trophies. This suggests that a third version of MediEvil is coming to the PS Store — most likely an emulated port of the original PS1 game with trophy support for PS Plus Premium.
In case you didn't know, MediEvil was a gothic-infused action adventure game originally released on the PS1 in 1998. It was developed by Sony's first-party studio SCE Studio Cambridge — later known as Guerrilla Cambridge, the developers of PS Vita shooter Killzone Mercenary. The game went on to receive a sequel on PS1 (MediEvil 2), a PSP port (MediEvil Resurrection), and a PS4 remake in 2019 (just called MediEvil).

While Guerrilla Cambridge eventually got shut down in 2017, MediEvil continues to live on beyond the studio — largely on PS Plus, where subscribers can already find both the PS4 remake and the PSP port of the game. Now it seems like we're getting a third outing for the game on PS Plus, which is simply wild; especially since we've still to receive any sort of port for MediEvil 2 on PS5 or PS4.

MediEvil

Unlike MediEvil Resurrection, which came to PS Plus Premium in 2023 with its own unique trophy list, this PS1 version of the game carries with it the exact same trophies as 2019's MediEvil PS4 remake — except that this time Sony didn't bother making half of the trophy list hidden.

So, if you absolutely love MediEvil and want to earn another platinum trophy in the series, check out the full MediEvil PS1 trophy list below for what you have to face. I suspect we might see the game announced for the PlayStation Plus April 2024 Extra and Premium line-up on Wednesday, April 10, 2024. So look forward to that.

For the rest of us, it's back to scratching our heads, wondering just why Sony is doing this instead of MediEvil 2. I mean, I'm happy to see the game on our PS1 games list, it's certainly a decently good time, but enough to warrant three ports? You'll have to let me know in the comments if this is something you've been hoping for, because I'm at a loss with this one.
