Bubble Bobble Plushies Available in Very Limited Quantities from Strictly Limited Games

Taito's Bubble Bobble series started out in 1986 and remains popular to this day. Bubble Bobble 4 didn't get the world on first (though I like it), but there will be plenty more adventures for Bub and Bob in the future, including the upcoming Puzzle Bobble Everybubble. Merchandise for this series doesn't come to international markets very often, but Strictly Limited Games currently has a bundle of Bub and Bob plushies available to order. Quantities are already shipping and super limited, so don't delay!

New Details Pop Up for Puzzle Bobble Everybubble, Coming to Switch This Spring

Back in August, Taito and ININ Games announced Puzzle Bobble Everybubble, a Switch-exclusive installment in the venerable Puzzle Bobble series. This one will be the first game in the series to feature 4-player local co-op. Not only that, Everybubble will also add a unique 2vs2 Battle Mode which is playable against other players or the CPU. 2vs2 Battle Mode is one of several new details announced by ININ today.

Puzzle Bobble Everybubble Aims for a 2023 Release on Switch, Will Feature Co-op

The venerable Puzzle Bobble series (a puzzle game spin-off of Bubble Bobble) has seen many iterations over the years, including the pretty decent Puzzle Bobble 3D. That game wasn’t quite as refined as we'd prefer, but the newly announced Puzzle Bobble Everybubble looks like a return to form. It will feature traditional 2D Puzzle Bobble graphics and gameplay, plus four player local co-op! Everybubble is due out exclusively on Nintendo Switch in 2023.

Use Your Real Body as a Stepping Stone in Commander Cherry's Puzzled Adventure

With the advent of new technology, plenty of games force you to make ridiculous yoga poses for its own amusement, but most of these rely on personal training, a la WiiFit and Xbox Fitness. I'm still on the fence as to if those count as actual games or not, but I digress. What if there was a game which allowed you to utilize the pose of a friend's real life body in order to provide platforms in that exact shape to traverse across a ravine?

Contraption Maker Announced by Incredible Machine Devs

Everybody remember The Incredible Machine series? Way back in the early to mid 90s, a series of puzzle games was released that essentially let you build your own Rube Goldberg devices. You know, the ones that involve mallets hitting marbles that roll down ramps to wake up a chicken whose flapping wings hit a lever that drops a bag of flour on top of a scale that tips and turns the light switch off. That sort of thing. The team behind those classic games is working on Contraption Maker, a spiritual sequel to The Incredible Machine that promises to bring back the same free-form puzzle solving we fell for back in the good old days.

Video Game Film Wreck-It Ralph Gets Co-Op Gameplay in Official Title

For those of you who wish a decent video game movie would be released in theaters for once, we might have a true winner with Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph. The movie’s official video game, however, is being described as the game that will “Inspire a whole new generation of young gamers”. Both Activision and Disney Interactive have been working on a side-scrolling, arcade title of Wreck-It Ralph: The Video Game for current Nintendo platforms to go right alongside what is portrayed in the movie.
