People who enjoy Rabi-Ribi are going to find more reasons to head back to this Metroidvania with bullet hell elements. Update 1.99s beta brings in Rabi-Ribi Steam Workshop support. This means people can start creating and sharing maps, sound effects, and sprites.
As of April 18, 2019, there are over 60 items available in the Rabi-Ribi Steam Workshop. There are things like the wcko87’s Platforming Tricks Tutorial map, which is also available in other languages, and teaches people how to make the most of Erina’s abilities. There are also mods by BDTaNaKa that let you replace Erina with the Vocaloid Yuzuki Yukari.
Here are the general patch notes for Rabi-Ribi Update 1.99s from Steam.
- Steam Workshop now supported! You can download other players map/sprite or upload your own

[Rabi-Ribi Final DLC Info 10] This is what Cocoa can do after obtaining the “Air Dash” item. Compare to Erina version, Cocoa’s have lower damage, longer startup, higher SP cost, doesn’t end until hit the ground but larger hitbox and better direction options after the dash!
