QUByte Interactive has announced they will be releasing an HD remaster of Visco Corporation’s bullet hell shooters Vasara and Vasara 2. Previously arcade exclusives, the games will be released together as Vasara HD Collection on consoles in 2019.

While their announcement doesn’t explicitly mention the Switch at the time of writing, QUByte Interactive has retweeted tweets that seem to confirm Vasara HD Collection will be released on the Switch.

See the full announcement and teaser trailer below:

99Vidas is in development for Switch, QUByte Interactive announced today. A release is planned between Q3 and Q4 2017.

99Vidas initially launched last year. The beat’em up takes place in a contemporary world and takes inspiration from classic games such as Double Dragon and Golden Age. Featuring 16-bit retro graphics, it has “Punch” and “Kick” attack buttons that can be used for combos.

Here’s a comprehensive overview:

99Vidas captures the excitement of beat ’em ups like Final Fight, Double Dragon, Battletoads, Golden Axe and Streets of Rage featuring 16-bit retro graphics to bring back the nostalgia of those great classics from the 80’s and 90’s.

Unlike more traditional Beat’Em Ups, 99Vidas features two attack buttons – Punch (fast but weak) and Kick (slow but strong), which players can alternate to perform different combos.

Character moves, including combos, can be upgraded by spending Experience Points acquired during gameplay, expanding damage inflicted, adding elemental damage, modifying the each character, both visually and gameplay-wise.

Key Features
Up to 4 players co-op
11 Playable characters
Story Mode with 6 levels
2 Bonus Levels
Versus Mode
Survival Mode
6 Challenging Boss Fights
Multiple Upgradable skills
Multiple Weapons and Special Attacks

Does HTR High Tech Racing ring a bell for anyone? We first mentioned this 3DS eShop game back in July 2013, and it didn’t resurface until May of last year. QUByte is still working on the 3DS edition (which now seems to have the final title “HTR+ Slot Car Simulation”), and it’s apparently coming out “soon”.

A new off-screen video provides a look at the track editor on Nintendo’s handheld. You can check it out above.

It’s been nearly a year since we last heard about HTR High Tech Racing. Fortunately, the game is still planned for the 3DS eShop. A release is currently targeted for August. Developer QUByte Interactive has also said that it plans to use assets and improvements from the PC build in the 3DS version.
