DICE’s ‘Hardcore’ coming 2019 - a 24-year-old cancelled Sega mega drive game

This is interesting, an old game by Dice that Psygnosis canceled as a result of shifting attention to the Playstation. Apparently, it was 99% done and is now going to be finished by Strictly Limited Games who has one of the DICE co-founders amongst the small team. It’s being developed/finished on an original mega drive SDK before being ported to PS4/Vita. It looks pretty cool and I wonder if a mega drive rom will ever be officially released or surface.

I’m interested. Looks very Turrican, and hope it is more that and less Contra. The energy bar looks promising for not just one hit and dead.

The first screenshot I saw of it made me think of Blackthorne. Either way, it looks cool.
