TAITO has announced that Bubble Bobble 4 Friends will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
After more than 10 years, the sequel to the ’80s classic has been created by the original studio and will include a brand new local multiplayer mode for up to four players.
One night, a child’s room became enfolded by a miraculous light and every object under its rays suddenly came to life – including the child’s most favorite toy, the little dragon called Bub. Full of jealousy, the wicked magician Baron von Blubba challenges the friendly dragon to battle.
“Bubble Bobble is an extremely popular title in Europe, so we decided to implement a pre-sale in Europe in conjunction with ININ Games and Strictly Limited Games,” explains Hiroshi Uemura, TAITO Corporation executive officer and division manager of development.
“It is also the first internally developed title since Taito has re-entered the consumer market, and the development team is thrilled to be working on this famous IP. I deeply hope that many people will enjoy it.”
Strictly Limited Games will produce a Bubble Bobble 4 Friends Collector’s Edition, with ININ handling the standard retail and Nintendo eShop releases.
Bubble Bobble 4 Friends will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch in Europe on November 19th, and in North America in Q1 2020.
