2D action-platformer HARDCORE MECHA coming to PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe on January 14th
Experience fast-paced mech battles galore in RocketPunch Games’ kinetic, stylish robo-shooter
Beijing China, January 9th, 2020 – Chinese Independent developer RocketPunch Games today announced that its 2D action platformer HARDCORE MECHA will be launching on PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe on January 14th. This follows its critically acclaimed launch on PC via Steam at the end of June 2019. HARDCORE MECHA is already available on PlayStation 4 in Japan, Korea, and South East Asia and is now lining up its sights on North American and European territories.
HARDCORE MECHA is a 2D platformer where players choose their mecha as they embark on a thrilling action-packed adventure filled with shooting, flying and exquisite animations – imagine a mix of Metal Slug and Super Robot Wars! The game features 3 major game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer, and Survival mode.
In Campaign Mode you take control of Tarethur, a mercenary charged with the task of finding a missing intelligence officer on Mars. Players will be engrossed in a story of conspiracy and insurgency consisting of 8 chapters and 18 stages ranging from deep underwater, out in space or confined in urban environments, all gorgeously realized with seamless animated cutscenes. In several stages, Human pilots can also exit their mechas, thus expanding the ability to explore the environment and engage in further platform-based combat.
“HARDCORE MECHA is a truly stylized 2D Mech action game that platformer fans will love, with a huge variety of mechs and killer moves to master, it delivers on our promise to create a truly competitive action game,” said Louiky, Producer at RocketPunch Games. “We’re thrilled to announce that both North America and European PlayStation 4 players can now battle it out with their chosen mecha.”
HARDCORE MECHA was first announced back in 2016 and was successfully funded via Kickstarter which saw more than 4,000 backers pledge to the project. Since then, the game has won critical praise for its super slick and fast paced 2D gameplay taking home a clutch of indie awards for the PC version at the Tokyo Game show, an ‘Excellence in Design’ win at the IndiePlay Awards, and Indies & Developer Award at the PlayStation™Awards 2019. At launch, HARDCORE MECHA was top of PlayStation Japan sales chart for 2 weeks and remaining in the top 3 for a whole month.
