It may not be officially announced yet, but it seems almost certain that Sony is reanimating dual joystick shooter Dead Nation for the PlayStation 4. Overnight, the platform holder listed an enhanced version of the popular undead-‘em-up on the Asian iteration of the PlayStation Blog, leaving many to ponder when we may find out more about the next-gen port.
Acknowledging the demands for additional details, Housemarque fired an open response onto its Twitter page, stressing that it’ll have “all of the answers that you want” over the coming days. Unsurprisingly, this led to even more interrogation from eager fans, with one user asking if the so-called ‘Apocalypse Edition’ of the arcade escapade had resulted in the cancellation of the previously announced PlayStation Vita port. “No,” responded a talkative studio spokesperson.
The handheld release was originally revealed at E3 last year, but the platform holder has failed to mention anything about the pocketable conversion in the months since. We suspect that much like thatgamecompany favourites Flower and Flow, the portable version will release alongside its upgraded console counterpart, but that’s purely speculation on our part.
Of course, you could argue that with Remote Play the native version may be redundant, but we suppose that it will come in handy for those who simply need to dismantle dead bodies when they don’t even have a Wi-Fi connection.
