New Super Stardust HD DLC: Impact Mode

Daimion Pinnock's Avatar Posted by on Mar 22, 2011 // Producer, SCEA

We’d like players around the world to know that we’ve created a new game mode for Super Stardust HD that’ll be out on PSN this Spring – it’s called the “Impact” mode.


We want to thank all the fans around the world for your continued support – it has made Super Stardust HD a top selling PSN exclusive and enabled us to keep creating new content for the game even now over three years after its release.

2008 saw the release of the “Solo Pack,” offering new game modes such as Endless, Survival, Bomber and Time Attack. That was followed by the multiplayer “Team Pack” featuring split-screen co-op and deathmatch modes for up to four players.

Additionally, the game then broke new ground by becoming the first ever PlayStation 3 game to feature Trophies.

In 2010 we gave players the exciting option to experience the game in real 3D, one of the few of its kind as it creates 120 unique frames per second.

Now in 2011 with the new Impact mode add-on, Super Stardust HD continues to be the most comprehensive shooter experience available.

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!


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.

Look out for the Impact mode on the PlayStation Store this Spring and, if you’ve never tried Super Stardust HD before, there has never been a better time to join the action!

Stardust pilots, start boosting your way to the top of the worldwide leaderboards!

Think they’ll make a bundle with everything?

Lack of release date or pricing info makes this a fail post. Why bother posting this if you literally have NO information that would matter? This blog is becoming a dump site for useless information and wanton posting about games no one wants, or are already over exposed.

Um, this mode isn’t “new”. It’s in the PSP version, Super Stardust Portable. lol.

This was surprising in a very good way. Looking forward to play this game again.

As opposed to #60, I’d love it if this came with trophies. Reach a score multiplier of 100 or some crazy stuff. Don’t make it harder than Late Boomer though. I needed 551 tries to get that one. It was tough, but the sweetest feeling to finally achieve it.

I have to say 4 years is a bit long to wait. But excited to breath new life into this title. Are there any time lines on additional content or expansions? Maybe even part 2!
