Dust: An Elysian Tail Coming to PS4
Dust: An Elysian Tail

Most press releases are boring, awful things. This one here, for example, is pretty bad right out of the gate. Far as we can tell, most press releases are so stuffy because the people writing them are business types, with suits and ties.

So, in accordance with that free-wheeling game developer spirit, we’ve decided not to announce Dust: An Elysian Tail for PS4 ourselves. Instead, we’re going to pass the proverbial baton over to one of the stars of Dust: An Elysian Tail and let her do it instead.

There is no way this could possibly go wrong.

Dust: An Elysian Tail

“Hello, Internet-People! I’m Fidget, co-star of Dust: An Elysian Tail. As you can see in the photograph displayed above, taken moments ago in a candid fashion, I’m playing the game with a DualShock 4! That’s no Photoshop job, that’s the real deal! Dust: An Elysian Tail is coming to PlayStation 4 REALLY REALLY SOON! I KNOW! It’s crazy! Crazy like a nimbat!

“So, what is Dust: An Elysian Tail? I’m glad you asked, this being an announcement post about it and all!

Dust: An Elysian Tail

“Imagine a 2D side-scrolling platformer, with crazy-fast swordplay and screen-clearing MAGIC supplied by yours truly. There are power-ups! Special abilities! Hidden passages! A whole world of STUFF to find! Main quests! Side quests! 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!

“Now, if you can, imagine all this awesomeness is hand-drawn like an old animated movie from the 80’s and 90’s, 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.”

  • Nice, already bought it in steam but game like this is best played with a controller and on tv. With transistor, child of light and this game, my ps4 become great place to play 2D games :)

  • PS VITA, please…this game is perfect for this device. I’ve been waiting for this game in my little black console for so long :(

  • AWESOME!!! Any more info of when this will be hitting the PSN Store?? I am truly excited for this :) I played it on my PC and got all the achievements and pretty much did everything but i will be playing it again for sure on my PS4 and ofcourse get all the achievements again :D

  • I’ve played this game many many many times when it was shown at PAX. I waited for what seems like forever to release, then I lost all track of it and thought it was vaporware. This is the first time I was reminded of it in what seems like years. I’ll buy it, it was great fun. I think it even won a couple of awards while at PAX.

  • This is Awesome news! Definite double dip on this one! Now all we need is Bastion and Mark of the Ninja FTW!

  • Love the hand-drawn art!!! Reminds me a little of Critter Crunch on PS3, which was also 1080p/60fps. Hopefully you’ll have 24-bit/lossless audio like that title did, as well!

    So awesome to see several games with strong female characters coming to PlayStation platforms.

  • Never heard of this either but based on the buzz on the ps blog this must be that amazing I’m guessing this will come out this year. I like platformers will check this out for sure!!!!!!!

  • I think you should port this to vita :D

  • How many cupcake will I have to give to fidget in order to play a possible vita version ? I don’t mind stealing an entire bakery.

  • Nothin’ that amazing, just another strider. Hope we’ll at least get it for october’s ”free” games

  • This is truly amazingly good news. I certainly hope that Dust: An Elysian Tail also comes native to the PS Vita as I’d certainly play a game like this on it’s beautiful OLED screen.

  • I absolutely loved this game when it was on the Xbox 360 and have been clamoring for it to be on PlayStation! The game is truly one of the best Indie games I’ve ever played. The soundtrack by HyperDuck Soundworks is absolutely phenomenal! I will gladly pay the full price for this game again!

  • OMG I have not posted here in forever, I remember emailing the dev asking to bring this to PS, while the answer was not no i didnt think it would ever come to playstation. So excited day 1 for me for sure.

  • This totally made my day! It’s funny me and a buddy of mine were talking just a few days ago about this being one of the best arcade games on the 360. For it to finally make it to PSN is all kinds of awesome! I can’t wait!

  • I loved this game last year on Steam, definitely all PS4 owners should buy it, it’s an awesome game.

  • I stopped to playing it on the PC as i read this news :D

  • Was just listening to an old Blogcast episode in which they mentioned this news. I can’t believe I missed it. I’ve been waiting for this game to come to PS so long that I bought it on PC. Won’t stop me from buying it again on PS4 though. I’d much rather play on my PS4 than my PC
