88 Heroes Heading to PS4 March 2017

Rising Star Games have announced that the chaotic 2D action platform game from acclaimed development studio Bitmap Bureau, 88 Heroes, will be heading to PS4, PC, Mac, Linux and Xbox One this March.

It looks like they have not set a date in stone as of yet but they have announced that the PS4 will be getting a physical edition.  The physical edition of 88 Heroes includes two exclusive additional heroes and the exclusive new H8 Mode, which features eight brand new levels offering a super-charged hardcore challenge.

Joining the crew and taking the number of nonsensical heroes to ninety are:


  • Cath Letics – Her super-sprint and long jump skills are activated by hammering the action button just like in an athletics videogame of yesteryear;
  • The Mime – Push the action button and The Mime will perform the classic “trapped in a glass box” mime action, confusing and befuddling enemies and making them turn away.

Hopefully these are just timed exclusives as I can see this being a tough one to get your hands on.


88 Heroes was on display at EGX last year and it is packed with content and challenge. The game is a chaotic 2D platformer that is as fun to watch as it is to play, where each level completed or untimely death brings a new uniquely skilled hero into the action. With just 88 minutes to complete all 88 levels, gamers will need every one of the 88 heroes to stop the dastardly Dr. H8 from destroying the Earth!
