88 Heroes - 98 Heroes Edition

88 Heroes – 98 Heroes Edition for Nintendo Switch is nearly upon us. Physical copies release in American markets on October 10th with digital copies to follow on October 12th. European territories will get their physical copies a little earlier on October 6th, but the digital copies will release the same day as North America on October 12th.

This news is slightly different than our last article, which reported 88 Heroes – 98 Heroes Edition releasing on Nintendo Switch in North America on October 2nd, everywhere else on October 10th. The trailer from last month still mentions this date in its description. Either way, it means only a slight delay for the Americas and a slightly earlier release for Europe.

Publisher Rising Star Games describes 88 Heroes – 98 Heroes Edition:

88 Heroes – 98 Heroes Edition is a “complete” version of the acclaimed game 88 Heroes, and features all the frantic fast-paced and funny action of the original release, plus the DLC pack ‘RSG Champions’ previously available on other formats, as well as the forthcoming DLC pack ‘H8 Mode Activate.’

The ‘RSG Champions’ pack comprises eight playable heroes taken from other smash-hit indie games published by Rising Star Games, in a crossover of colossal proportions! Characters include Rusty from SteamWorld Collection, Gunborg from Zombie Vikings, and Conga Master, from, well, Conga Master. Meanwhile the ‘H8 Mode Activate’ pack further offers up two playable characters and a collection of eight hardcore challenge levels to seriously test your platforming prowess.

88 Heroes, though with DLC sold separately, is currently available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Mac, and Linux.
