Celebrated side-scroller Dust: An Elysian Tail heading to PS4

Dust: An Elysian Tail, the celebrated side-scrolling role-playing game, has been confirmed for a release on PS4.

Announced via Sony’s U.S. PlayStation Blog, the beautiful-looking 2D side-scroller will run at 1080p and a fluid 60fps with a release date expected to be sooner rather than later.

Previously published by Microsoft Studios, the role-playing game was met with critical acclaim when it released on Xbox 360 back in 2012, PC in 2013, and as part of the Games with Gold with Xbox again earlier this year.

“Now, if you can, imagine all this awesomeness is hand-drawn like an old animated movie from the ’80s and ’90s, 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,’’ says a visibly animated Fidget, co-star of the game on PlayStation Blog.

She enthusiastically adds: ‘’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!’’.
