Super Star Wars releasing on PlayStation 4 and Vita this week

The SNES side-scrolling classic is set to make its debut on PlayStation 4 and Vita this week.

Star Wars Battlefront is releasing tomorrow, but it appears we’re getting a blast(er) from the past(er?) as Super Star Wars is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita this week.

The Super Nintendo classic will be an enhanced version of the original game, which will include new save features, leaderboards, updated display and controller options, and Trophy support. Super Star Wars will also be a Cross Buy title, which means once it’s purchased on one platform, it’ll be available to download on the other.

Details are scarce at the moment, but we’re certainly interested to see just how “enhanced” Super Star Wars graphics are. Although if you ask us, we’re fans of the classic 16-bit look and feel of the original, so hopefully we’ll be able to experience it with the title’s display options.

      Well that certainly came out of nowhere. I'll have a peak based on price and what they've "updated"

      Will this be a Sony exclusive or might there be a Steam release down the road?

        IIRC, this and a few other titles are included in the Battlefront PS4 bundle, so I assume they'll be exclusive.

      I wtf'd this because this is definitely the most bizarre re-release I can think of. SSW is part of the Hard Games Club, too, isn't it?

        Giving the game saves will solve most of those issues.

          There better be a "classic" mode. Kids these days need to know just how brutal the original game was.

      You know I bought it and played it and its cool and all that but really the game doesn't hold up well at all. I removed it quickly after a brief playthrough.
