Bubble Bobble 4 Friends (Nov 19 EU Release, Switch)


Recommended Posts

Taito are releasing a new Bubble Bobble sequel on Switch this November. It’s 4 player.

 

 

I don’t care if the game turns out jank, gonna take that physical edition. And hopefully Bub & Bob get a Smash Bros DLC slot as well. Would love this to lead to a Bubble Bobble 1-3, Rainbow Islands, Parasol Stars collection on Switch.

Oof, that art style. It reminds me of those retro collections on PSP that let you play with "updated" visuals.

 

That said, BB's been ported to pretty much everything so it's not like there aren't alternatives out there to suit your needs. :)

Did you not see the trailer?

 I watched the trailer, although on mute... The art style looks a little offensive, but as long as it still plays well I'll probably make a purchase. (In the same way that Super Bomberman R looks pretty hideous, but it's still a good game of multiplayer Bomberman).

BUBBLE BOBBLE 4???

 

I didn't even know there was a second one.  Loved the original when I was growing, clocked 100 levels a few times.

I wish Rainbow Islands and Parasol Stars were ported to Switch. A compilation of the whole series would be an easy sell, surely.

 

Don't forget Magic Pockets too!

And Rodland.

 

It’s worth checking out the sequels: Bubble Symphony (and to a lesser extent, Bubble Memories).

 

I think the best way to play Bubble Symphony is probably via a PS Classic Mini and a rom backup of your legitimate physical copy. 

 

I never played Rodland, don't think it came out on any Atari format.

hmmm, must just have missed that somehow.

 

I used to get pretty much all my 800 and ST games for free.  My uncle would just bring home copies of everything, funny how they said piracy would kill the games industry especially as he was a programmer for Beyond, Rainbird and Firebird and all he did was make games in the 80s.

I keep wondering what on Earth is wrong with the music in this trailer.

 

I'm wondering why they decided to use an image to make it look like it's Space Invaders instead of Bubble Bobble.

I get what you’re saying but... because they’re IP’s from the same era both owned by Taito? I expect it was intended to be a fun retro reference, like the rainbows.

 

But it makes the video look like a Space Invaders game not a Bubble Bobble game.

 

(and they're different eras anyway - 8 years between them!)
