PC gamers will finally get in on the bubble-blowing fun.

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron's Workshop Heading to Steam with a Level Editor

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, the latest game in Taito's classic co-op arcade platformer series, released on PlayStation and Switch a while back and later received extra levels with 'The Baron is Back' update. The next logical step for Taito and publisher ININ would seem to be the release of Xbox and PC versions. Sadly, Taito continues to avoid showing Xbox any love, but a Steam version is finally happening. It will be called Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron's Workshop, and it will feature a brand-new level editor.

Taito Egret II Mini Arcade to Feature 'Bubble Bobble' and More Co-Op Classics

In December 2021, Sega and a company called Zuiki released the Astro City Mini, a miniature arcade cabinet featuring 37 classic Sega arcade games. Now to be outdone, Taito recently announced its own mini arcade cabinet: the Egret II Mini. Scheduled for release in March 2022, the Egret II Mini will include 40 classic arcade games, 10 of which feature 2-player local co-op. Even better, the optional Paddle & Trackball Game Expansion Set adds 10 more games and a very special controller. That’s a lot of classic co-op goodness!

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends Coming to Switch Next Year

Here's a surprise: a Bubble Bobble sequel will arrive soon. Bubble Bobble 4 Friends is coming to the Nintendo Switch and will support four player couch co-op. The original is, apparently, hugely popular in Europe so if you live there, you'll be getting the game first on November 19, 2019.
