The game, which was also developed by brand inventor TAITO Corporation, will include Bubble Bobble the coin-op version of 1986 in arcade-perfect quality – this means besides the 100 stages in Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, there will be 100 more in the original Bubble Bobble to enjoy with original music, sound and visuals.
Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, including the legendary original Bubble Bobble, will be released digitally and physically exclusively for Nintendo Switch in Europe and Australasia on November 19, 2019.
The release in the USA and South America will follow in the first quarter of 2020.
Bubble Bobble is an iconic cult game and is considered the most popular and innovative platformer of the ’80s. The twins Bub and Bob set out to free their girlfriends from the hands of the nasty baron, who also enchanted them into bubble dragons. As such, the brothers hop through the differently arranged platforms of the 100 colourful levels and shoot bubbles at numerous enemies. In the ’80s and ’90s, players jumped solo or in two-player co-op mode through the levels. Bubble Bobble’s success has seen it ported to more than 20 different platforms in recent decades, including the C64, Sega Mega Drive and NES Classic Mini.
In this new title, the latest entry in the widely popular Bubble Bobble series, a 4-player co-op mode has been integrated for even more fun with friends. Also, players can acquire special skills by collecting letter bubbles that form the word “extend” to add some strategic depth and increase replayability. So, there will be a lot to discover and tinker with for the players, during their journey through the all-new worlds of Bubble Bobble 4 Friends.
Collectors can also look forward to a strictly limited and very extensive Collector’s Edition of the game, distributed exclusively by Strictly Limited Games, which includes numerous exclusive contents related to Bubble Bobble.
