Mech battles never grow old… just better!
Beijing China, June 19th, 2020 – Global publisher Lightning Games in collaboration with Independent developer RocketPunch Games is pleased to celebrate one year since HARDCORE MECHA’s inaurgural Steam launch with a huge 40% discount on Steam from the 19th to 26th of June. In addition to the English, Japanese, Chinese and Korean language options, the game has now been localised into French and Russian.

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! Players can participate in either the campaign, multiplayer or survival mode.

In Campaign Mode you take control of Tarethur, a mercenary tasked with finding a missing intelligence officer on Mars in a story of conspiracy and insurgency. Consisting of 8 chapters and 18 stages, these range from deep underwater, out in space or confined in urban environments, all gorgeously realized with seamless animated cutscenes. Multiplayer mode allows players to select from a roster of customizable mechas and showcase amazing freestyle combo moves and experience the high-speed competitive PVP battles. HARDCORE MECHA supports online multiplayer and local split-screen for up to four players. And for players that are looking for a greater challenge there is the 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.

“We’re so proud of the achievements HARDCORE MECHA has made since it made it’s debut on Steam last year. Since then it’s gone on to excel on the PlayStation 4 and next up is on Nintendo Switch,” said Louiky Mu, Producer at RocketPunch. “The fact it’s still going strong is a sign of it’s universal appeal and the huge support of the fans.”

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 PC at the Tokyo Game show, an ‘Excellence in Design’ win at the IndiePlay Awards, and Indies & Developer Award at the PlayStation™Awards 2019. HARDCORE MECHA was on top of PlayStation Japan sales chart for weeks, and remained in the top 3 for over a month after its release.
