Lightning Games have announced that they will release Hardcore Mecha in Europe and North America this October.
Here’s an English trailer and some details about the game:
HARDCORE MECHA is a 2D platformer where players select their mecha to 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 tasked with 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, giving a greater ability to explore the environment and engage in further platform-based combat.
For players that are looking for a greater challenge beyond the 8 hours single-player campaign, there is a Survival mode, “Simulation Battle”. Here players can handpick from the 40 mechas that appear in-game, as they fight to survive against waves of deadly enemies.
Multiplayer mode allows players to select from a huge roster of customizable mechas and showcase amazing freestyle combo moves and experience the high-speed hardcore competitive PVP battles. HARDCORE MECHA supports online multiplayer and local split-screen for up to four players.
Hardcore Mecha (Switch) comes out on October 15th in Japan, and this October in Europe and North America.
