QUByte Interactive’s brawler 99Vidas reached Switch last November, but it’s only been sold on the eShop. That will soon be changing, courtesy of Strictly Limited Games.

Strictly Limited Games has announced 99Vidas as its next physical release. Fans will be able to purchase a standard copy or a collector’s edition. The latter package includes:

Publisher QUByte Interactive and developer Kasulo Game Studio today confirmed that Box Align is heading to Switch next week. The puzzle title is lined up for an April 11 release.

Here’s an overview, along with a trailer:

QUByte Interactive has announced that its shoot ’em up package Vasara Collection will include a “Timeless Mode”. The procedurally-generated mode “places the players against hordes of evil in a continuous battle for the top of the leaderboard,” the studio says.

Here’s an official overview of the feature:

Last March, QUByte Interactive announced it had acquired development and publishing rights to the shoot’em up franchise Vasara. The company has since been tinkering away on Vasara Collection, a package of the original two titles in the series, for Switch and other platforms.

QUByte Interactive revealed today a partnership with Strictly Limited Games that will provide Vasara Collection with a physical version. A release is planned for early 2019.

QUByte Interactive announced today that 99Vidas: Definitive Edition is coming to Switch on November 27. A free demo is out now on the eShop.

99Vidas: Definitive Edition is a brawler, and for the Switch release, new content has been added. This includes new enemies, new stages, and new modes.

99Vidas will have exclusive content on Switch, QUByte Interactive announced today. Two new levels, five different enemies including a new boss fight, new camera effects, and character skins will be added.

99Vidas is releasing for Switch between Q2 and Q3 of this year. If you missed our previous coverage, check out the overview and trailer below.

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.
