Strictly Limited Games announced that the canceled DICE developed 2D action game Hardcore will be renamed Ultracore and released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in late May. The publisher will also release the game physically on both platforms, yes, even the Vita.
To follow this announcement and a new name, the publisher released a new gameplay trailer showing new footage from the almost lost retro action title. However, at the end of the trailer, a Nintendo Switch logo can be seen listed with the other platforms, meaning that the studio might have planes bring the game the Switch hardware.
Almost 99% complete in the early ’90s, Hardcore was canceled due to the shift away from 2D shooters and into the realm of 3D adventure games. At the time of cancelation, the game had a planned release for Commodore Amiga, Genesis, and Sega Mega-CD.
Now, Strictly Limited Games has teamed up with DICE founders, Fredrik Liljegren and Joakim Wejdemar as well as ex-DICE programmer Mikael Kalms to bring the game to current consoles to finally complete the game and release it.
