July 12, 2017 Written by Jason Dunning

Beat ’em up 99Vidas is releasing on July 18 in North and South America for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita, Brazilian studio QUByte Interactive has announced.

Featuring cross-buy, cross-save, and cross-play (on PS4 and PS3), 99Vidas is set in a contemporary world that “pays tribute to both the new and the classic in gaming industry.” There’s six stages available at launch, and you’ll be able to face them with up to three friends, both locally and online. Depending on how many players are in the game, the dialogue and ending may change.

Here’s the description for 99Vidas:

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.

Features

  • Cross-Buy (PS4, PS3 and PS Vita)
  • Cross-Save (PS4, PS3 and PS Vita)
  • Cross-Play (PS4 and PS3)
  • 11 Playable characters
  • Up to 4 players in Co-op (PS4 and PS3) local and online
  • Story Mode with 6 levels
  • 2 Bonus Levels
  • 6 Challenging Boss Fights
  • Versus Mode
  • Survivor Mode
  • Multiple Upgradable skills
  • Multiple Weapons and Special Attacks

A price wasn’t given for the PlayStation version of 99Vidas, but it does cost $12.99 USD on PC.

If you’re wondering, 99Vidas is Portuguese for 99 Lives.
