Fast 2D Platformer 88 Heroes Out Today on PS4, Xbox One, and PC; Launch Trailer Released

March 24, 2017

Today, publisher Rising Star Games and developer Bitamap Bureau’s fast and frantic 2D platformer, 88 Heroes, launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. And to celebrate, the pair have released an accompanying launch trailer.

The game is available only digitally on PC and Xbox One, but on PS4 it’s also available physically, at least in Europe. It won’t be available physically on the PS4 in North America until March 28th.

The PS4 physical version also contains some exclusive content in the form of two additional heroes: Cath Letics and The Mime, as well as the exclusive new H8 Mode, which features eight brand new levels offering a super-charged hardcore challenge.


For those that don’t know: 88 Heroes is a chaotic 2D platformer where each level completed or untimely death brings a new uniquely skilled hero into the action. You have just 88 minutes to complete all 88 levels across 4 zones (each with a unique boss), and you’ll need every one of the 88 unique heroes (each with their own skills and abilities) to stop the dastardly Dr. H8 from destroying the earth.

Each time you play, Hero order is randomly selected, which in turn offers a fresh and varied challenge each time. There is also multiple modes like Solo mode, where you play the game with just one hero, as well as Magnificent 8 mode, which allows you to choose 8 heroes to tackle the game with.

88 Heroes costs $14.99 USD. Below, you can check out the launch trailer:
