Of the games showcased, the only IP confirmed for this year is Kill X, which shall arrive this winter. Confirmed for 2019, we have Project Boundary, a space FPS whose central mechanic is 4-D movement. Hardcore Mecha and Pervader, on the other hand, have simply listed their releases as “coming soon.” Our hands-on time with Hardcore Mecha at PSX (Called Code: Hardcore at the time) allowed us to provide an in-depth preview that you can find here. Last but not least, there’s no release date in sight for Lost Soul Aside. Originally conceived by a lone developer, the game is currently being developed by UltiZero games using the Unreal Engine. You can find our PSX preview of Lost Soul Aside here.
