Wow, that was fast! Shortly after it was announced Bubble Bobble Wii is getting released. Japanese Wii owners can download it on February 10. Taito packed Bubble Bobble Wii with 200 maps (100 original, 100 in arrange mode, and two difficulties make 400 stages), four player support (apparently Bub and Bob were quadruplets), and online rankings for 800 Wii Points ($8).
Beat those and you can test your skills on two expert map packs that Taito will happily sell you for 200 Wii Points ($2) apiece. Each pack has 50 more stages and a single boss to fight. Can you figure out who they are from the pictures?
Nothing official has been said about an international release, but I’m confident one is coming. We should see Bubble Bobble Wii domestically under the name Bubble Bobble Plus sometime in the future.
