Housemarque Planning “Spiritual Successor” to Super Stardust HD for PlayStation 4

by Prima Games Staff

The PlayStation 4 is just months away from dominating store shelves and Super Stardust developer Housemarque is preparing to invade it in style.

The developer has announced today that a “spiritual successor” to Stardust is in the works for the console.  Though it doesn’t have a release date, it should keep fans of shooter games quite happy.

“We are super excited to be working on Sony’s next-gen hardware,” said Housemarque’s CEO Ilari Kuittinen.  “The platform’s performances are enabling us to do things that wouldn’t be possible otherwise and 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.”

It’s curious that the project is being dubbed a “successor” instead of an all-out sequel, but we’re excited to see what Housemarque has planned.  Look for more details soon!
