Parasol Stars: Bubble Bobble III Will Arrive on Consoles on July 11

We'll soon be able to beat the summer heat with parasols and platforming!

The Bubble Bobble series utilizes a strange naming and numbering scheme in which there are multiple Bubble Bobble 2s and 3s. Parasol Stars: The Story of Bubble Bobble III was the first threequel in the series, originally released exclusively on Turbografx-16. Now, the game is coming to modern consoles as well via ININ, allowing a whole new generation to enjoy its colorful cooperative platforming and umbrella-based attacks.


  • The triumphant return of the Bubble Bobble franchise

  • An enigmatic ensemble of enemies, each with unique abilities (and charm)

  • 2-player mode: double the fun with Bubby and Bobby!

  • Dazzling parasols with magical powers

  • Power-ups galore

  • 8 worlds to save, plus 2 unlockable ones!

  • Quality-of-life options, such as save states and the ability to rewind gameplay

Parasol Stars

Even though Parasol Stars started its life as a console game rather than an arcade game, it's still a pretty special sequel. Taito didn't just copy the gameplay from Bubble Bobble; they came up with a new gimmick and made a truly memorable entry in their beloved series. It's still fairly pretty, too!

Parasol Stars will arrive on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch on July 11. It will cost $9.99.
