Hardcore Mecha Action Platforming Cosplay For The Switch

2D robot-combat platformer Hardcore Mecha is now available as a free demo and coming to the Switch in October.

How about a bit of metallic cosplay? In Hardcore Mecha, from RocketPunch Games and Lightning Games, players get to don a mecha that brings flight and destruction with a Metal Slug flair to it.

In the full game, there will be three major game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer and Survival mode, but the meat and potatoes are the Campaign where you play mercenary Tarethur O’Connell, an ‘ACE pilot of Hardcore Defense Corp.

With over 8 chapters and 18 stages, players will be able to exit their mechas so they can explore the various environments, including deep underwater or in space.

Aside from the Survival mode in Hardcore Mecha, with over 50 types of enemy mechas, there’s also the Multiplay game with ‘high-speed competitive PVP battles’ either as a local split-screen for up to four players or online.

HARDCORE MECHA is a gorgeously stylized 2D mecha experience that fans will love, with a huge variety of mechs and killer combos to unleash during the deep campaign or while battling against friends…we’re happy players can now experience the fast paced combat of HARDCORE MECHA on the go with the Nintendo Switch.
