Have you ever heard of a little side-scrolling shooter called Ultracore by Digital Illusions for the Sega Genesis? No? Well, that might be because it was never actually released. However, all that changes starting today.

Ultracore began development in the early 90’s by developer Digital Illusions (now DICE) and was planned for release on the Amiga, Sega Genesis, and Sega CD. It was a side-scrolling shooter not too unlike the Turrican series. The game was nearly finished when the games publisher, Psygnosis, decided to pull the plug and cancel the project for whatever reason in 1994. Ultracore joined the ranks of “lost” games but is finally seeing the light of day. Although technically released previously in 2019 for the Mega Sg, an aftermarket console compatible with Sega Genesis, Master System, Game Gear, and SG-1000 games, this marks the first time Ultracore has launched on a major platform. Check out the trailer below to see it in all of it’s shoot-y glory.

 

 

Ultracore launches today for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 for…. $22.99 USD. Yep. Checkout the eShop or PlayStation Store if you’re interested.
