Sportsfriends Coming to PS4, Will Be Free for PS3 Backers

What’s good about the gaming industry is that everyone is trying to churn out something new and what’s even better is that people are pretty much willing to provide helping hands when it comes to trying out new things (at least most of us are).

One such project is the local multiplayer Sportsfriends by Danish publisher and developer Die Gute Fabrik.

Previously, we had heard that the game will be released sometime around the end of this year but that was for Windows, Mac, Linux and PlayStation 3. It has been now announced through a post on PlayStationBlog US that the game will also be released to the next generation console of Sony.

Along that announcement, the post has also confirmed that all the PlayStation 3 users who backed the game during its Kickstarter campaign will be allowed to download the PlayStation 4 version of the game for free as well.

For those of you who don’t know what the game is about, it comprises of four minigames namely: Johann Sebastian Joust (J.S. Joust), Super Pole Riders, BaraBariBall, and Hokra.

J. S. Joust is a local multiplayer that doesn’t require a traditional controller or a screen rather it makes use of a special controller PlayStation Move. The players try to unbalance the opponent’s controller until you are the last man standing. Super Pole Riders on the other hand is, as the name suggests, a pole-vaulting game.

During its Kickstarter campaign the project had received $150,000 and it is practically on the way to release, and soon.

Since no specific date has been shared so far even for the current generation console or PC, it would be too early to comment on the release date for PlayStation 4, off the record, I am expecting it to hit the racks sometime before or after the New Year eve.
