Just Shapes & Beats, the already pretty challenging couch co-op musical bullet hell from Quebec-based indie developers Berzerk Studio is finally coming to PS4, and it’s about to get much, much harder.

The PS4 launch of Just Shapes & Beats will include a new Hardcore mode that will include more difficult versions of all 39 current levels. Faster, more complex obstacles and enough for even the die-hard player to sink their teeth into. The PS4 launch will also include all the standard versions of all levels, as well as the casual mode for those who enjoy a more mellow and forgiving experience. As continued levels are released for the game, they too will also include both Standard and Hardcore versions going forward.

This release also includes additional language support for both simplified and traditional Chinese as well as German. In addition, the new level modes mean another set of ranks to achieve for anyone who has already S-ranked their way through the game. Oh yeah there’s also a Platinum trophy, you’re welcome.
