Bubble Bobble Wii Popping Up Overseas

bbwii So, in case you missed it Famitsu poured details about Bubble Bobble Wii, a brand new WiiWare game based on classic Bubble Bobble. No rainbow islands or puzzles here!


Bubble Bobble Wii has 400 stages and this number includes a remake of the original Bubble Bobble. On top of that you also get rearranged stages, four player co-op, and two optional map packs for 200 Wii Points each. Bubble Bobble is getting a meaty revival for only 800 Wii Points ($8).


worldr One of the screenshots clearly says World Ranking in the menu which is enough to justify an international release for Bubble Bobble Wii. If that doesn’t suggest that Taito or in this case Square Enix is bringing it overseas check out the rating for Bubble Bobble Plus we found on the USK.




So, Bubble Bobble Plus! is coming out as a WiiWare game in the future published by Square Enix similar to Space Invaders: Get Even.

  • I can so dig this. I bought the NES Bubble Bobble for 90$ on release day! Huge fan here but.. 400 levels? WOAH.

    wow nice 400 levels and 4 player co -op, i’m so getting this if it comes out.

  • Awesome. I can’t wait to play this with my sister.

    Is Taito developing it? They’re apparently too cool to work on the game (series) that put them on the map nowadays, as evidenced by the mostly terrible DS and PSP games. Their in-house revivals like Legend of Kage 2 and Space Invaders Extreme have all been nothing short of amazing, though, so if this one’s all them, I’m good as sold.

      Legend of Kage 2 was outsourced to Lancarse btw. And the PSP version of SIE was handled by Gulti.

      • BOOM with the facts. I had no idea Lancarse did Kage 2. I hope they’re secretly working on Etrian Odyssey III… for the Wii maybe?

        I’ll be damned.
