Super Stardust Ultra, a new version of developer Housemarque's twin-stick shooter that was an early favorite on the PlayStation 3, is coming to the PlayStation 4, Sony has announced in a post to the PlayStation Blog.

In addition to a graphical upgrade, the new game has an "array" of new planets and at least nine different game modes, which include new modes as well as those we've seen in previous games and add-ons.

One interesting new addition to the game is the "Interactive Streaming" game mode, which lets you stream your game and allow viewers to vote periodically to change your gameplay experience.

Super Stardust Ultra has typical global leaderboards, but now you're also able to directly send and receive challenges from your friends. It also has 2-4 split-screen multiplayer for cooperative or competitive modes.

If you're looking to play more of Housemarque's PS4 debut Resogun, Sony also recently announced the Resogun: Defenders DLC. It will feature two all-new game modes—Protector and Commando, new ships, and all new planets featuring what Housemarque said is some of its most detailed artwork to date. If you want to play Resogun but don't own a PS4 yet, Sony also announced that the game is coming to PS3 and Vita on December 17.
