About HARDCORE MECHA
HARDCORE MECHA is a robot-combat platformer where players select 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 three 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 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 50 mechas that appear in-game, as they fight to survive against waves of deadly enemies.
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 over 10 indie awards including at the Tokyo Game show, and Developer Award at the PlayStation™Awards 2019. After its release, HARDCORE MECHA topped the PlayStation Japan sales chart for weeks, and remained in the top 3 for over a month.
