Upcoming Nintendo Switch release Bubble Bobble 4 Friends will include the original 1986 arcade game as a free bonus.
Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, the new multiplayer Switch game from Inin Games, will also include Taito’s original coin-op version of Bubble Bobble.
Inin’s game expands the series’ traditional two player gameplay with support for up to four players. Apart from that it looks like a vibrant, if traditional, update to an old favourite. It’s certainly packed with content. There are more than 200 hundred levels to play across the new version and arcade original combined.
A physical Bubble Bobble 4 Friends Special Edition has also been announced that includes four trading cards, a poster, and two keychains depicting the iconic Bub and Bob. A Collectors Edition will also be distributed by Strictly Limited Games.
It’s certainly a good time to be a Bubble Bobble fan.
Bubble Bobble 4 Friends will be released digitally and physically for the Nintendo Switch on November 19, 2019 in Europe and Australasia. A US release will follow in Q1, 2020.
