Super Star Wars Blasts Its Way Onto PlayStation 4 And Vita This Week


If the release of EA DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront this week is simply not enough to satiate your appetite for battling the Empire in a galaxy far, far away, then don’t worry: Sony is bringing back a blast from the past to the PlayStation Network.

The company has revealed that the Super Nintendo run-and-gun classic, Super Star Wars, will be made available for the Playstation 4 and PS Vita tomorrow, November 17th.

The game, first released in 1992, mainly follows the story of A New Hope, being the first of three SNES games to be based on the original trilogy. It was followed by Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, which has become notorious for its extreme difficulty, and Super Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi. Although it hasn’t been confirmed, it is entirely possible that ports for these two games could be on the cards as well.

According to Sony, this new version will have “new save features, leaderboards, trophies, and updated control and display options.” The game will also be a Cross Buy title, meaning that purchasing it on one platform will unlock it for the other so that you can enjoy all your side-scrolling, lightsaber-wielding action both at home and on-the-go.

Super Star Wars is also being included in the Star Wars Battlefront PlayStation 4 bundle, which will also include three other classic Star Wars games: Star Wars: Starfighter, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter and Star Wars: Racer’s Revenge.
