Star Wars gamers have been anticipating Tuesday’s release of Battlefront for quite some time, but they may have felt a disturbance in the Force on Sunday when they learned that a classic Star Wars video game would resurface on the same day.

Sony listed the fan-favorite Super Star Wars video game among the titles that will be available on Nov. 17, the same day that Electronic Arts publishes Battlefront. The game will be available for the Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita.

Super Star Wars, a side-scrolling game originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1992, allowed players to control Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca. Sony’s re-release will include “new save features, leaderboards, Trophies, and updated display and controller options.”

This isn’t the first time that the game has made a comeback. Nintendo re-released Super Star Wars for the Wii Virtual Console in 2009.

Super Star Wars for PS4 and PS Vita will be available Nov. 17.
