The Once Cancelled ‘Ultracore’ Gets PS4 and Switch Release Date

ININ Games announced that the once canceled DICE-developed 2D action game Ultracore will launch on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on June 23. The PlayStation Vita version of the game is planned for a digital release after.

“I know the care, love, sweat, and hard work that went into creating Hardcore in the first place by all involved parties. Thus, I think it is fantastic that this product finally gets to see the light of day and for people to be able to play it,” said Fredrik Liljegren, one of the 4 founders of DICE.

Ultracore features side-scrolling platforming elements where players must shoot like crazy to get through each level. The game has a host of weapons available, which allows players to get creative with how they take down enemies.

Ultracore was canceled in the early 90s but has been revived to bring the game’s 5 stages to retro run-and-gun fans. 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.

Strictly Limited Games will publish the physical release on PS4 and Switch.
