Super Stardust Delta (known in Japan as Star Strike) has hit the PSN for download for Japanese Vita owners. It’s a ‘remix’ of the PS3 version, offering almost identical graphics and gameplay but with a few unique twists.
I’ve been playing it for a few days and think it’s just as good as its big brother – I particular like the new boost (which now has a cute delay on it) and the tightened focus on fire and ice weapons.
The controls are fine, with some Vita-only options like tilt control and tapping the touchpad, although old-schoolers will be happy to know that you can play with pretty much the standard PS3 controls if you so desire.
The game is just ¥1,000 (around £8), and will be a launch title here on the 22nd of February.
