Taito corporation has announced a brand new entry into the classic Bubble Bobble series coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.
The new title is called Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, and is notable for being the first game in the series to offer up to four player co-op. The game will first be released in Europe on November 19th 2019 both physically and digitally, with a US release following in 2020. Furthermore, Strictly Limited Games will also be releasing a Collector’s Edition, although its contents have not yet been detailed.
Regarding the decision to launch the game in Europe first, Hiroshi Uemura, executive officer and division manager of development at Taito had this to say:
“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. 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.”
