88 Heroes – 98 Heroes Edition saves the day on Nintendo Switch this October

Rising Star Games announced today that it will release an expanded version of Bitmap Bureau’s 88 Heroes for the Nintendo Switch on October 2. 88 Heroes – 98 Heroes Edition includes the base game as well as two DLC packs that will add more challenges to the comedy-action title.

It’s 8:08am on 8th August 1988, and the evil Dr. H8 has brought the world to the brink of total annihilation! His demands are simple: pay $88 octillion within 88 minutes, or Dr. H8’s 88 thermo-nuclear warheads will wipe out the Earth! But who will save us in our time of need? The bravest? The boldest? No… the 88 Heroes!

Prepare to infiltrate Dr. H8’s lair with the help of the strangest, dumbest and most pointless superheroes ever! With 88 levels between you and Dr. H8, only 88 seconds to complete each level and the 88-minute Doomsday clock already ticking, lead a unique band of heroes – each with their own special abilities – on a platform-hopping, enemy-smashing, danger-dodging mission to save Earth from complete destruction. And with ten extra heroes and a new mode featuring eight of the toughest challenges yet, 88 Heroes – 98 Heroes Edition for Nintendo Switch has everything you need to defeat evil once and for all!

In addition to the previously released DLC pack “RSG Champions”, the Switch version of 88 Heroes – 98 Heroes Edition will also have the forthcoming DLC pack “H8 Mode Activate”, which will include some of the game’s most devious challenges.

With a surprising timed mechanic and a tongue-in-cheek approach to its humor, we can’t wait to save the world on our Switch, hopefully with enough time to eat a burrito. Check out the reveal trailer above, and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
