While the game shipped out last year in Japan and Europe with no problems, Codemaster’s release of Bubble Bobble Revolution has some serious bugs. Once you get up to the boss at level 30 music plays, but you’re on a blank screen. Apparently this problem is deeper than a single batch of a DS carts. A statement by Codemasters says that ALL of North American cartridges are defective.
“We have been looking very hard into this issue with Nintendo and have now determined that all of the carts that have been shipped in North America are faulty.
Needless to say we are extremely sorry that this situation has arisen and would like to apologise to all customers who have bought the game.
We have already started the process whereby a corrected version is to be manufactured and will ensure that all customers have their copies replaced. Unfortunately this will take 8-10 weeks (simply because of the time required to manufacture new carts). We will update (via this board, and email to anyone who has emailed us) what you will need to do to get a replacement game, as soon as this has been determined.
Please note. This only affects the North American version. Customers in other parts of the world should not experience this problem.”
If you’re one of the unlucky recipients of a defective cart you can hold it as a collectors’ item or send Codemasters an e-mail at: [email protected] to get a replacement.
