Last November, the developer and publisher QUByte released 99Vidas on the Switch eShop. The 16-bit title was created in conjunction with 99Vidas – Brazil’s most popular video game podcast – and aimed to recreate the magic of the beat ’em up golden era, when games such as Final Fight, Double Dragon, Battletoads, Golden Axe and Streets of Rage were in their prime.
Now, months later, physical distributor Strictly Limited Games has revealed 99Vidas will receive a print run for Switch. This copy of the game will include “The Last Battle” DLC and is limited to 3,000 copies. Pre-orders open on 26th May (aka. this Sunday). Even the box art seems to channel the 16-bit era:
You’ll also receive an exclusive pin gift if you previously purchased the PlayStation 4 or PS Vita version of the game.
As previously noted, the Switch version features “exclusive” content. This includes an all-new arcade mode and remix mode, along with new stages and enemies. It also supports four players (local and online) and features a story and survival mode.
