The classic Amiga game, Shadow of the Beast is to returning to the Sony PlayStation 4 in this violent but beautiful re-imagining.
‘Shadow of the Beast’ will always have a place in my retro gaming heart. In truth I barely played the game. Back in the early 1990’s I owned an Atari ST. Most of my friends owned the more powerful Commodore Amiga 500.
Whilst the game was released for both machines, it was originally written for the more technologically powered Amiga. The Atari version couldn’t match the beautiful graphics and music that the Amiga could offer. I remember playing the game and its sequels at my friend’s houses with a pang of jealousy every time.
Now after twenty years, Shadow of the Beast is back in this PlayStation 4 re-imagining. The game still keeps its two dimensional sideways scrolling roots but plays within a three dimensional environment.
Shadow of the Beast will be released sometime in 2016.
