Bubble Bobble Adding 100 New Stages
Taito have announced that Bubble Bobble 4 Friends will be adding a new area in a free update this November featuring 100 new stages!
The new area is called Sukaru Monster no Gyakushuu (which literally translates to “Baron von Blubba’s Counterattack”) and adds a further 100 stages to the game, totalling 200 stages, as well as the enemy character from the first game, Baron von Blubba, pictured above. More elements are also planned.
The new area will be delivered free to Nintendo Switch owners of the game (you can buy the Special Edition here) with a PlayStation 4 version also newly announced. Both update and PS4 version are scheduled for November release. Check out the game description and original promo video below…
The popular dragons Bub and Bob are back! Bubble Bobble 4 Friends is the latest game in the legendary Bubble Bobble series from Taito.
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 magician 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.
A celebration for fans and fun for the whole family!
