PS4 version of Dust: An Elysian Tail announced

1080p/60fps. Out soon.

A PlayStation 4 version of Dust: An Elysian Tail has been announced.

The hand-drawn 2D side-scrolling action platformer first launched on Xbox 360 in 2012, then a year later on PC. On PS4 it runs at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second, developer Humble Hearts wrote on the PlayStation Blog.

It's due out soon, although no release date was mentioned.

We reviewed the Xbox 360 version of Dust back in 2012, concluding: "Dust does many things well, but it doesn't do anything brilliantly. The combat's decent, the structure invites the revisiting of old areas, and the narrative stays interesting. Taken together, these things are enough to keep you plugging away till the end."
