99Vidas: Definitive Edition

QUByte Interactive will release 99Vidas: Definitive Edition for Switch via the Nintendo eShop on November 27, the developer announced. A demo will launch alongside the game.

99Vidas is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and PS Vita. The Definitive Edition adds exclusive content, including new enemies, stages, and game modes.

Here is an overview of the game, via QUByte Interactive:


99Vidas is a brawler set in a contemporary world, that pays tribute to both the classic and the new in the gaming industry. Brought to you in 16-bit pixelated glory, chock-full of references to not only gaming but also 80s and 90s pop culture. 99Vidas takes full advantage of modern era gameplay mechanics, making it the best of both worlds.

The game features 11 playable characters and multiple cooperative and competitive game modes, for up to four players, which can be played either locally or online.

Each of these characters has unique attributes, like speed and strength, as well as an elemental alignment (Fire, Water, Wind, Lightning, et al), which modify their regular attacks, combos, and special moves. Different from more traditional games of the genre, characters gain experience points by defeating enemies and collecting special items which can then be used by the player to upgrade their abilities and combos, or even unlock new ones.

  • All-new Arcade Mode – Double the size of the regular campaign with no dialogue to interrupt the flow—no talk, all action!
  • All-new Remix Mode – Every new play is a different experience! This new mode mix things up by shuffling stages and enemies every time you start a new game.
