Developer Housemarque has confirmed its working on two new games for PlayStation 4, one of which is a 'spiritual successor' to the Super Stardust series.
Super Stardust started life as a 1994 Amiga release, but will be more commonly recognised today for Super Stardust HD, the top-down shooter that released on PS3 in 2007.Housemarque, which also developed Dead Nation and Outland, promises that the as yet unnamed successor will take advantage of the PS4 hardware to create "incredible visuals with direct impact on the way the new game feels".
Housemarque's CEO Ilari Kuittinen said, "We are super excited to be working on Sony's next-gen hardware. 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."
He went on, "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."
The announcement offered no further information on the developer's second PS4 title, only promising more information on both games "in the upcoming months".
Sony revealed the PS4 at an event in February, confirming a 'Holiday 2013' launch. It will lock horns with Microsoft's Xbox One, revealed Tuesday for launch 'later this year'.
