Today, publisher Rising Star Games and developer Bitmap Bureau announced that their chaotic 2D action platformer 88 Heroes is scheduled to release on March 24th for PS4, Xbox One, Mac, Linux, and PC.
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 is only available digitally, unless you’re on PS4, where you will have the option of picking up a physical edition which will come with two exclusive additional heroes and the exclusive H8 Mode. This mode features eight brand new levels offering a “super-charged hardcore challenge.”
A price point has not been revealed, but the launch trailer has: you can check it out below.
