Musical bullet hell action game Just Shapes & Beats is getting an update today introducing a new 'Hardcore' mode, plus support for four more languages.
In addition to adding German, Russian and Traditional and Simplified Chinese to the game, Hardcore difficulty is available for all the tracks and there's also a new set of Ranks to pick up. Canadian developer Berzerk Studio's previous update added five new tracks as well as Korean language support, minor tweaks and the requisite bugfixes.
For those of you who missed it, we really quite liked Just Shapes & Beats, not only awarding it 9/10 but also including it on our list of hidden gems on Switch. Here's another look at the launch trailer to jog your memory if it passed you by a year ago:
Will you accepting the challenge of the new hardcore mode? Did this one pass you by in the flood of brilliant games hitting the eShop in the past year? Let us know with a comment.
Played a few tracks earlier and got my butt kicked a bit. This is going to be fun.
@dartmonkey it also gets some new Shovel Knight themed songs!
this game is great
This is a fun game, but it got too hard for me. The music is great, the controls and game play are fun. I put several hours into it, and I do not regret the purchase. But I can't imagine a hardcore mode.
But good for the developer putting it out.
Just want to point out that Shapes and Beats is also on sale at 25% to coincide with the update.
The best of its kind since the BIT.TRIP series.
I haven't touched this game in ages...even when the new songs showed up. I might mess with it again, but...I just wished I could mess with the level editor. :c
Love this game. Great news!
