Finnish developer Housemarque announced today that it’s working on a “spiritual successor” to the Super Stardust series for the PlayStation 4.
Housemarque’s twin-stick shooter Super Stardust HD launched as a downloadable title during the PlayStation 3′s first year of release. The company followed up with the PS3-exclusive zombie shooter Dead Nation and the multiplatform Outland, and made its PS Vita debut last year with Super Stardust Delta.
“We truly believe that better technology can lead to better gameplay,” Housemarque’s CEO Ilari Kuittinen explains. “The more tools and resources we have at our disposal, the better.”
Kuittinen continues: “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 additionally revealed that it is working on “another unannounced PS4 project.” The company will announce further details regarding both games later this year.
