Shadow of the Beast is an upcoming PlayStation 4 re-imagining of a 1987 Amiga game of the same name. As a way of paying tribute to the original, it will be included as an unlockable bonus.

The original is notoriously difficult, so the developer Heavy Spectrum has included a version of the game that offers endless continues. That option can be turned off though, for the purists, though. In the blog announcing the inclusion of the original game, Heavy Spectrum CEO and founder Matt Birch also revealed that  the game's original soundtrack can be unlocked for use in the new game, once you gain enough mana.

Shadow of the Beast is a PlayStation 4 exclusive, and releases May 17.
