Super Stardust, from Finnish developer Housemarque, is seeing a spiritual successor on the PlayStation 4.
The original title was launched as a twin-strick shooter title during the PlayStation 3‘s first year, and Housemarque followed its success with titles like Dead Nation and Outland. Making the jump to h handheld gaming on the PS Vita with Super Stardust Delta.
“We truly believe that better technology can lead to better gameplay. The more tools and resources we have at our disposal, the better. Think of Super Stardust HD: at the time, PlayStation 3 gave us the opportunity to populate the game with thousands of interactive objects and implement the game’s famous ‘spherical gameplay’. Today, we can take advantage of the architecture of PlayStation 4 to create incredible visuals with direct impact on the way the new game feels.” – Housemarque’s CEO Ilari Kuittinen
Don’t expect this to be the only title on the PS4 from Housemarque either. They have said that the studio is already working on at least one other title, and that further details will be announced later this year.
