New Modes Revealed for “Puzzle Bobble Everybubble!”
ININ Games recently announced some new details for Puzzle Bobble Everybubble!, the upcoming competitive puzzle game and latest installment in the Puzzle Bobble/Bust-A-Move series.
These new features come in the form of “EXtra Difficult” EX stages and a “Memory Album” where players can unlock and collect a number of bonuses including character costumes, stage music, and more.
For those unfamiliar with the series, Puzzle Bobble is an action-puzzle spinoff of Taito’s Bubble Bobble starring the two heroes from those original games: the magical dragon brothers Bub and Bob. Players must use their bubble launcher to connect bubbles of the same color and clear the screen. Of course, there are plenty of strategies and items to make use of, as well as some opportunities for assists from other classic Taito characters.
Here’s the official breakdown of the new features from ININ, followed by a gameplay video showing footage of the EX stages:
Challenging elements of the Story Mode:
In this new Bub and Bob adventure, clearing each area of the Story Mode under specific conditions releases EX Stages, ex(tra) hard levels that will challenge even the hardest-core Puzzle Bobble players, but that’s not all! It will also allow you to unlock characters that can be used in Battle Mode, costumes for the assist characters Miniroon and Chack’n, new stage music and many more items. These puzzle-filled stages will tell new stories, ones that differ from the main storyline.
These EX stages, combined with the standard Story Mode stages, and Baron’s Tower, along with the stage variants available dependent on player numbers, the game offers hundreds of different stages to master.
In the Memory Album, you can view descriptions and profiles of the skins and costumes of the characters and assist characters you collected in the Story Mode. You can also collect and listen to stage music, and compare two patterns: the normal music that seamlessly switches as the game develops, and the music played in a pinch.
Puzzle Bobble Everybubble! is currently scheduled for release for Nintendo Switch on 23 May.
