I can’t even begin to tell you how much my sister and I played Bubble Bobble as kids. We would battle endlessly against Bonner and his henchmen throughout the series. When I heard that the latest installment, Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, was going to be hitting the Nintendo Switch in the US; I knew I had to tell you guys about it. Read more below and pick it up from the eshop HERE.
Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, developed by the original studio, TAITO Corporation, and exclusively released on Nintendo Switch, is released today in North and South America. All gamers worldwide will be excited to know that those who purchase the game will be able to download later in the year new must-have content, for free, and that includes European or Australian Nintendo gamers who got their fix of Bubble Bobble 4 Friends since the end of 2019.
Taito are currently developing and expanding the game’s content to deliver everything fans’ wish for, including new stages and the return of a fan favourite enemy character – “Baron von Blubba’. More news on this, and additional upcoming features, will be revealed in the coming weeks and months.
Working on new levels for the expansion
Taito’s latest instalment of this all-time classic since their return to the home console market has been warmly received by fans and critics worldwide. The development team wanted to create something that can be enjoyed not only by fans of the IP who grew up with the two cute Bubble Dragon Twins Bub and Bob, but also with their family and friends. It was important to capture the spirit of the colourful original and to bring it to Switch. As the Bubble Bobble IP is something very dear to Taito, they listened closely to the feedback they were given so far. It was only natural that the team would not rest on their laurels and to make sure that players would be able to enjoy Bubble Bobble for many weeks to come. They are working hard to develop deeper and more challenging content that will definitely be going to please gamers all around the globe.
Play alone or with up to 3 friends in couch co-op mode and jump your bubble dragons through 100 levels to defy the wicked wizard Bonner and his henchmen. The bubbles don’t just let you trap your opponents, either – your dragons can also jump on them to reach higher platforms.
Collect E-X-T-E-N-D bubbles to activate and upgrade skills, such as lightning and bomb bubbles. Develop countless new strategies to travel through the worlds and take advantage of air currents.
The original Bubble Bobble arcade game from 1986 is also included, which captured the hearts of players around the world and still has fans humming its title melody today.
