This is bad; this is really bad.

The fate of the entire solar system is in the balance.

Bombarded by deadly asteroids and under attack from a huge space navy commanded by a ruthless villain, planets across the galaxy are in dire need of a hero.

And this is where you come in…


Your star fighter is equipped with all of the latest tech and weaponry; you just need to know when to use them.


The rapid-fire green lasers are capable of blasting through any rocky asteroids and green-coloured enemies.


The snazzy golden beam will melt your red-coloured enemies and any golden meteors you can find.


Deliver a chilling final message to your blue-coloured foes and icy meteors with well-timed blasts of pure ice power.


Your shields will protect you from incoming hits, but they won’t last forever. Look out for upgrades to stay alive longer.


Hit the turbo to momentarily speed through the atmosphere and escape your enemies; if your thrusters hold up, you can even take out your foes by ramming straight through them.



Send enemy craft and nearby asteroids into oblivion by detonating bombs all over the place.



As well as facing a fleet of crack enemy pilots, drones and spacey things, you’ll also have to take out giant speeding lumps of gold, ice and rock.


Blast the asteroids into tiny pieces to be rewarded with lots of points.


Many asteroids carry green coloured cores, filled with stardust; by blasting these cores you will uncover bonus tokens that could upgrade your firepower, boost your shields or even grant you an extra life (you will need it).



You can intercept cargo ships to top up your bomb supply. Aim for the coloured tanks to detach them from the ship, and then blast them into smithereens to release the tokens.


The cargo ships are pretty tough and can even deflect your bombardment for a while, so some well-placed and lucky shots could even take out a few enemies while you go after the goods.


Broadcast your Super Stardust™ Ultra gaming action live online, and let the watching world dictate what happens next!

As your viewers watch the action unfold, they will get a number of on-screen prompts to vote for different scenarios, so you’ll never have any idea of what to expect.

Maybe your viewers will think you’re a little bit too good at this game and will order a swarm of enemies to attack; or perhaps they’ll take pity and give you the chance to grab some handy upgrades.

You can get started by selecting Interactive Streaming from the Single Player menu.


Test your reflexes, guts and endurance as you fly solo, alongside pals or against your best/worst friends and enemies in a bunch of fast-paced space shoot ’em-ups.



Save five planets from total destruction. The further you go, the harder the challenge will become.


Save five planets from total destruction. The further you go, the harder the challenge will become.


Revisit any world you have previously saved from the forces of evil. The chances are, they’ll need saving again.


Show off your hot shot skills by facing never ending random attack waves.


When facing indestructible space probes, the only option you have is to survive as long as possible.


Take out your enemies while only using bombs.


Save a planet as fast as you can.


With no weapons on board, you can only rely on a new impact booster upgrade to charge through your enemies.



With cubes constantly spawning behind you, there’s little room for error.



Things get a little spicy when up to four players join together for high octane shoot-outs. Can you be the last star fighter flying?



Share the screen as you save the solar system with a friend.



Keep your eyes on your half of the TV in traditional split screen co-op.


So you think you’re the best darn space pilot in the solar system, do you?

Well now you can really prove it by challenging your PlayStation®Network friends to beat your best scores. Then we’ll see. We’ll all see.

Saving the universe is one thing; flying around in an awesome star fighter while doing so is something else.

You can now tailor the look of your star fighter to strike fear into your opponents and match your personal fighting style with loads of different combinations possible.

Of course if you’re feeling a bit lazy you can just go for a random design.

You can change the look of your starship from Options in the main menu, or even during a mission after pausing the game.

Even the best space pilots need a helping hand from time to time…


  • Clear the attack phases quickly for time bonuses.
  • Resist detonating your bombs in a mission for additional points.
  • Destroy enemies and asteroids for a higher score multiplier − losing a star fighter resets the multiplier.

  • Hit the boost button to speed through point tokens for a chain bonus.
  • Earn extra lives at one million, five million and 10 million points.
  • Get an additional extra life for every 10 million points.

Silver SILVER: Maximum Firepower – Have all weapons at 200% power.
