DICE’s Project Hardcore originally made for Mega Drive.
A story that’s sure to have editorial overlord Damien McFerran perspiring like former SEGA America chief Tom Kalinske at a 90s PlayStation press conference, Strictly Limited Games has announced that it’s resurrecting an old 1994 shooter that was originally created for the Mega Drive and Mega CD. Project Hardcore was developed by DICE and set to be published by Psygnosis in 1994, but it never saw the light of day. Incredibly, it’ll now launch both physically and digitally on the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita next year.
The press release reads: “Project Hardcore is a Euro-style Metroidvania-platformer appealing especially to classic 2D-action-game enthusiasts with its intricate level design and numerous mid- and end-bosses. Vertical-scrolling shoot ‘em up stages, originally planned to be exclusive to the SEGA Mega CD version, will also be integrated into the final version, delivering the most complete experience possible and bringing back memories of games like SWIV for the Commodore Amiga.”
