88 Heroes – 98 Heroes Edition Hits Switch In October
Already a success on other platforms, 88 Heroes is jumping ship to the Nintendo Switch with both digital and retail versions on the way. The game is scheduled to land on October 2 and features 88 different heroes for you to control. 88 different levels with only 88 seconds to get through each will have you trying to save the Earth before it’s annihilated in 88 minutes. I sense a trend here.
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!
