Dual Core

System: Wii U Release date: 23/06/2016

Important information

As of late March 2023, it will no longer be possible to make purchases in Nintendo eShop for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS family systems.

Dual Core is a vibrant, futuristic twin-stick shooter with a strong focus on local co-op multiplayer.

It's 2147 and the human colony on Europa has suffered a terrible fate. Rebooting after hibernation, two super-intelligent AI cores awake to find themselves installed within a couple of old security drones. Their attempts to uncover what occurred may end up becoming a lower priority than merely surviving.

Lots of robots, lots of lasers, lots of aliens, lots of explosions! The numerous retro arcade influences are front and centre, but spiced up with a colourful modern style, a generous helping of sci-fi intrigue and a dash of RPG elements!

Don't fight alone! Up to four players can battle together in local co-op, but you'll always have your trusty, computer-controlled robo-buddies by your side.

Story mode sees you battle through a ton of handcrafted levels as you attempt to shed light on the calamity that befell the colony. Arcade mode is a straight-up arena shooter where you battle wave after endless wave of the alien horde, while Versus mode pits you against up to three friends or computer-controlled opponents.
