Recommended Videos

QUByte Interactive’s 16-bit Double Dragon-inspired beat-em-up 99Vidas released for Steam on PC last year, and just recently on the PlayStation Store for PS4, PS3, and PSVita. Now, the game has set its sights on the Nintendo Switch, with QUByte Interactive announcing that the game is set to release on the console sometime between Q3 and Q4 of this year.

 

You can check out 99Vidas’s Switch announcement trailer in the video below.

 

Here’s a full overview of the game, including a look at its key features:

 

99Vidas captures the excitement of beat ’em ups like Final Fight, Double Dragon, Battletoads, Golden Axe and Streets of Rage featuring 16-bit retro graphics to bring back the nostalgia of those great classics from the 80’s and 90’s.

Unlike more traditional Beat’Em Ups, 99Vidas features two attack buttons – Punch (fast but weak) and Kick (slow but strong), which players can alternate to perform different combos.

Character moves, including combos, can be upgraded by spending Experience Points acquired during gameplay, expanding damage inflicted, adding elemental damage, modifying the each character, both visually and gameplay-wise.

 

Key Features

  • Up to 4 players co-op
  • 11 Playable characters
  • Story Mode with 6 levels
  • 2 bonus levels
  • Versus Mode
  • Survival Mode
  • 6 challenging boss fights
  • Multiple upgradable skills
  • Multiple weapons and special attacks

 

99Vidas is available on PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. It will release on the Nintendo Switch later this year.
