In several stages, Human pilots can also exit their mechas, giving a greater ability to explore the environment and engage in further platform-based combat.

Multiplayer mode allows players to select from a huge roster of customizable mechas and showcase amazing freestyle combo moves and experience the high-speed hardcore competitive PVP battles. Hardcore Mecha supports online multiplayer and local split-screen for up to four players. The Nintendo Switch version also allows players to use Local Wireless mode to play face to face.

In Survival Mode, players encounter over 50 types of enemy mechas with various designs and details in all kinds of scenes such as mineshaft, underwater, urban, and space. Survive, breakthrough and improve skills and equipment in between level and missions.

“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,” said Louiky Mu, Producer at RocketPunch. “And after it’s success on Steam and PlayStation 4, we’re happy players can now experience the fast paced combat of HARDCORE MECHA on the go with the Nintendo Switch.”
