Ultracore brings back the notalgia of those classic 1990’s platformer shoot-em-ups you would play on the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis or Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) which are making a comeback.
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.
Fredrik Liljegren, one of the 4 founders of DICE.
With the endeavour of Strictly Limited Games, Ultracore has been restored and completed after its development was put on hold due to an upcoming evolution of video game consoles back in 1994. In collaboration with experts of the genre and (former) members of DICE, the game was brought to life – improved, optimized, full of run & gun action and hardcore boss fights.
This masterpiece has been further refined by adding a second full-length soundtrack, so players will be given the option to either play through the game with the old or the new background music. This new soundtrack features more than 20 full-length synthwave and electronic tracks of few of the genres best artists such as Scandroid, Waveshaper, Mega Drive, Fury Weekend, 3Force, Isidor, Fixions and many others.
Ultracore is available to purchase from June 23rd for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch for £17.99 with a digital PS Vita release a little later.
