New DLC for hit PlayStation Network shmup Super Stardust HD is on the way, Sony has announced.

As revealed on the PlayStation Blog, Impact Mode arrives on 30th March priced at 1.59 / 1.99.

"The Impact mode plays on and twists the game rules in place of the weapon system your ship is now fitted with an experimental new matter-to-energy boost engine technology, which means once you activate the boost, you can stay in boost as long as you can hit meteors and enemies with it!" explained developer Housemarque's CEO Ilari Kuittinen.

"This mode also features much higher score multipliers as long as you boost the multiplier keeps growing and growing! This is the most fast-paced and adrenaline inducing add-on to the game yet."

Super Stardust HD first rocketed onto PlayStation 3 back in 2007, blitzkrieging Eurogamer's Richard Leadbetter to the tune of 9/10.

"Super Stardust HD is an absolute star, the jewel in the crown of the PlayStation Store and quite possibly the best purists' shooter to appear on console since the legendary Geometry Wars," he wrote.
