One Level In Hard Corps: Uprising Has Hoverboard Riding

By Spencer . December 16, 2010 . 1:03pm

It looks like Hard Corps: Uprising, the anime styled side-scrolling shooter from Arc System Works and Konami, has an auto-scrolling level. Players ride a hoverboard and blast helicopters in stage four.

The next level goes back to your regular run ‘n gun action with a fire area and a battle with a giant, laser shooting eye.

Hard Corps: Uprising is still on track for a winter release on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. If you missed it, check out this interview we did with Kenji Yamamoto, the producer of the game.

  • So January/February release window?

  • Code

    rar, can’t wait to sink my teeth into this. Loving what ASW is doing with the visual style of the game, but also love there additions to the gameplay, like reflecting bullets +w+ rarr so totally can’t wait.

    Riding on a board? Old school! Now I’m expecting some Ninja Turtles with their skateboards cameo–No excuse either it’s still Konami afterall!

    • Code

      Actually I think Ubisoft currently holds the rights to the Turtles franchisee — although it’d be still a fun reference to fight 4 green mutants during that section >w<'

      • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

        Oops you’re right… But Konami beat ’em ups will always be in my heart.

        • Code

          haha me too >w<' Seriously can't wait for this new Contra though, but yeah I definitely preferred Ninja Turtles games on the NES more, lol.

    • I remember playing something like this when I was a kid on the SNES Power Rangers The Movie. Man, those were the times

    Wow this still hasn’t been released? I remember playing it back in E3. It was hard as hell. Doesn’t help that you walk slow as hell and theres no run just a dash. It’s not bad just too slow for me.
