Super Stardust Ultra Coming to PS4 Next Week

Super Stardust Ultra will be released on PlayStation 4 next week as announced by Sony Computer Entertainment. The game, the fourth in Housemarque’s series of twin stick shooters was originally made for the PlayStation 3, but the new port will be available for download from the PlayStation Network on February 10 in North America and February 11 in Europe. The game will be priced $12.99/€12.99 respectively.

The PS4 version of Super Stardust Ultra will be able to support 3D at full 60 frames per second in 1080p. Sony claims that this will add “an extra dimension” to the previous generation version of the game. In addition to the visual enhancements, the port will feature five newly designed planets and nine single player game modes, a few of which are debuting for the first time in this version of Super Stardust Ultra.

One such mode is called Blockade. Players are challenged with avoiding a continuous stream of mines dropped from the back of your Star fighter. The mines also destroy anything else on the planet that make contact with them, so these dropped explosives can also be used to your advantage. Therefore, timing is the most essential skill in this new mode.

An optional Interactive Screening mode is also available in Super Stardust Ultra. Players have the choice of whether or not they want to stream their game online. Viewers will apparently be able to decide what happens next whether by sending  some more obstacles and challenges your way or a more friendly care package to help you out.

Super Stardust Ultra is a shoot-em-up game has the player piloting a fighter in the middle of space. The mission is defend the planet from enemy attacks while also struggling to stay alive in the midst of a meteor storm.
