The MediEvil Short-Lived Demo is a demo version of the MediEvil remake. The demo was leaked on September 24, 2019 on the Japanese PlayStation Store, but was swiftly taken down.[3] It was officially unveiled later that same day, during Sony's State of Play stream.[4]

The demo became unavailable to download from the PlayStation Store on October 6, 2019, but was made available again on December 20, 2019, this time featuring additional levels from the game.[5]

Official description

The illustrious Sir Daniel Fortesque cordially invites you to try the MediEvil: Short-lived Demo, where you can hack, slash and blunder your way through Dan's Crypt and The Graveyard – the first two levels of MediEvil.

Got something to prove? That sounds familiar… Look carefully around Sir Dan’s tomb to find an exclusive helmet which makes his life (or should that be death?) more difficult. This uniquely challenging apparel can only be found in this demo and carries through to the full game too!

Be sure to grab it while you can… this limited-time demo is decomposing fast.*

*Demo only available until 10/06/2019 at 23:59 PT.
