What do you get for finding and helping all the Lost Souls in MediEvil on PS4?
You will unlock two silver PS4 trophies -- one for finding all the Lost Souls, and another for completing them. They're called Lost and Found and Soul Saviour. However, that's not all; you'll also get a special new option on the main menu. If you want to find out what that reward is, highlight the following spoiler text:
Once you've found and completed all the Lost Souls, you'll have access to 'Old Game' -- a port of the original PSone version of MediEvil!
MediEvil PS4 - All Lost Souls locations and how to complete their tasks
To kick off the Lost Souls quest, you'll first need to play the level The Entrance Hall. In the room with the Chalice and the waterfall, you'll notice a large chest and a book describing it. Opening this chest frees the Lost Souls. Now, most of the levels in the game will contain a hidden Lost Soul for you to find. They look like coloured, floating masks, and are usually fairly easy to locate. Here's where to find each one, and what you'll need to do to help them out. It's worth pointing out you can complete any of the below in whatever order you like.
NOTE: You must go on to complete the main level after collecting and/or helping the Lost Souls in order to have it register. You cannot complete the Lost Soul task and then quit to map; doing so will erase the progress you make.
Lost Soul location: The Entrance Hall. This red Lost Soul will appear in the room after you open the aforementioned chest. You can't miss it.
Lost Soul task: Go to The Sleeping Village. Head to the right to go through to the area with the pond. Stand on the little boardwalk, open your inventory, and select Fisherman Formes. The challenge involves killing a whole bunch of fish and other enemies. Upon completion, the Lost Soul will disappear.
Grave Keeper Kambic
Lost Soul location: The Sleeping Village. This white Lost Soul can be found near the large house with the safe inside. Explore around the smaller structures nearby and you should see it.

Chen the Enchantress

He'll tell you to set the big hand to the number of force fields, and the little hand to the number of brains. The "time" you want on the clock is 4:10. To put it another way -- if both hands are pointing straight up (at what would normally be 12), press the silver button twice, and the gold button four times.
