SNES classic Super Star Wars hits PS4 and PS Vita Tuesday

Sony has announced the Nintendo classic Super Star Wars will be made available for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita this week.

The 16-bit title, made famous on the Super Nintendo console in 1992, will be released alongside Star Wars: Battlefront on Tuesday.

The 2D platform game has been “enhanced,” for the new generation of consoles Sony announced on the PlayStation Blog.

There’s also updated display and controller options, while it’s also a cross play title, meaning a purchase for one console unlocks it on the other.

“Enhanced for PS4 with new save features, leaderboards, Trophies, and updated display and controller options. Risk your life as a Jedi Knight! Join Luke, Han, and Chewbacca in their fierce war against the evil Empire,” the post reads.

The re-release of the game will be a nice boon for Playstation 4 and Vita users, but it’s not like Super Star Wars has been in an Kenobi-like exile for the last 23 years. It was also released on the Nintendo Wii virtual console back in 2009.

However, if the prospect of paying £50/$60 for a Battlefront game with no single player campaign mode is a little too much, at least there’s a way to get your Star Wars gaming kick this week.
