Action Platform Game 88 Heroes Available Now on PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One
LONDON, UK – March 24, 2017 – Rising Star Games today announced that 88 Heroes, the fast, frantic, funny and fan-pleasing platformer releases today on digital stores, and also as a physical retail release for PlayStation®4 in Europe. In the USA and Canada the boxed PlayStation®4 edition releases on March 28th. In addition, the boxed PlayStation®4 edition features exclusive content not available in any of the digital versions.

From the creative minds at acclaimed development studio Bitmap Bureau, 88 Heroes is a 2D platformer that is as fun to watch as it is to play. Each level completed or untimely death brings a new uniquely skilled hero into the action and, with just 88 minutes to complete all 88 levels, players will need every one of the 88 heroes to stop the dastardly Dr. H8 from destroying the Earth!

Exclusive to the physical retail version of 88 Heroes on PlayStation®4 are two additional heroes, Cath Letics and The Mime, as well as the exclusive new H8 Mode, which features eight brand new levels offering a super-charged hardcore challenge.
