MediEvil PS4 Remake: How to Unlock Original PS1 Game


MediEvil is a 1998 classic PlayStation video game developed by SCE Cambridge Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. This action-adventure hack and slash game recently got a remake for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. You can now experience the adventures of Sir Daniel Fortesque on your 4K TV.

The best thing about this remake is that a new series of side quests and collectibles called “Lost Souls” have been added. If you manage to find all the lost souls and put them to rest, you will be able to play the original PS1 MediEvil game from the main menu. This will also unlock two new trophies, Lost and Found (Find all the Lost Souls) and Soul Saviour (Lay all the Lost Souls to rest).

If you want to relive the original PS1 version within the PS4 remake of MediEvil, continue reading this guide to learn more.

Guide: Unlock the Original MediEvil PS1 Game

MediEvil has 19 Lost Soul riddles and locations. To unlock the original MediEvil PS1 game, follow the instructions below:

  • Make your way to the “The Entrance Hall” level of the game. You have to go down the staircase on the right. You will find a blue chest at the bottom. Opening it will unlock the Lost Souls side quests. Each Soul will give you riddles, which you have to solve in order to lay 19 Lost Souls to rest at different levels throughout the game.
  • After unlocking the Lost Souls side quests, you will see a grey ‘S’ logo on the map of every level. This indicates that there is a Lost Soul somewhere to be found in the level. When you find a soul, the grey ‘S’ logo will become orange colored. Note that the Lost Soul’s resting location is different than where you find it.
  • Remember to finish the level after you find a Lost Soul location or lay a Lost Soul to rest in its location. If you quit the level without finishing it, your progress won’t get saved. If you miss a Lost Soul in a level, you can still obtain it by replaying the level. It will take you one to two playthroughs to put a Lost Souls at a different level anyways.
  • Once you have put all the 19 lost souls to rest, go back to the main menu of the game and unlock the PS1 version of MediEvil.
