Brazilian developer QUByte Interactive has announced that they’ll be bringing 99Vidas to the Nintendo Switch sometime this year, the retro styled beat ’em up launched in North America on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita this July.
You can check out a trailer for the game and read a brief overview down below.
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.
