First released on Xbox 360 back in 2012 (and brought to PC in 2013), Humble Hearts has announced that Dust: An Elysian Tail is coming to the PlayStation 4 “really, really soon” and will run at 1080p/60fps.
Featuring an award-winning hand-drawn world, Humble Hearts used Dust co-star Fidget to explain what the game is:
Imagine a 2D side-scrolling platformer, with crazy-fast swordplay and screen-clearing MAGIC supplied by yours truly. There are power-ups! Special abilities! Hidden passages! A whole world of STUFF to find! Main quests! Side quests! We’ve even got a quest where you can choose to put poison ivy into some jerk’s laundry! I KNOW! It’s magical! Let’s poison his laundry TOGETHER!
Now, if you can, imagine all this awesomeness is hand-drawn like an old animated movie from the 80’s and 90’s, but with art at crazy high resomolutions! Like, 1080p! People tell me that’s pretty darn good! Also, 60fps. I’m guessing that’s some sort of speed? Like, the speed of awesome? I don’t know much about these things, though. I mean, look at my hands! I’m not plugging anything into expensive TVs with these ham-hocks.
When Dust gets a PS4 release date, we’ll let you know.
