After hitting a delay last year, Mercenary Kings now has a solid release date. Tribute Games announced today that it will launch on PC on March 25 and then PlayStation 4 on April 1.

The game is on Steam Early Access right now for $14.99, and the announcement touts that price will remain for a week after its full version launch. A PlayStation 4 price wasn't mentioned.

The game from a team of Ubisoft Montreal vets who worked on Scott Pilgrim vs The World, and similarly focuses around a side-scrolling team dynamic with cartoon-inspired graphics. As the name implies, though, this one has more weaponry, like a choice of more than 300 gun parts and 100 knives.

          Yeah, I tried the very first backer alpha and it was rough. The current build is vastly improved.

        I've put about 16 hours into the early access build, it's fucking great. Can't wait for the full version. Probably gonna get it for PS4 too.

        I'm about halfway through the missions on early access @ 13 hours. I didn't play from the very beginning, only from around November onwards. It's always been very enjoyable and challenging! Seeing it progress has been fun.
