Puzzle Bobble Everybubble! has received a finalized release date. The multiplayer puzzle game from developer TAITO and publisher ININ Games will be released for Nintendo Switch on May 23rd, 2023. Physical copies will be available at select retailers in Europe and North America, priced at $39.99 USD / £34.99 EUR. Check out the latest trailer for Puzzle Bobble Everybubble! above, detailing the online battle mode, gameplay, and a message from the dev team.
Along with that, details on two new modes have also been shared:
One vs. One Online Multiplayer
In this new Puzzle Bobble title, you will be able to play one vs. one online battles against players from all over the world. Ratings and classes will go up or down depending on the results of your wins and losses, so improve your skills and aim for a higher class!
Using the “Password Matching” function, you’ll also be able to play online with friends anywhere in the world– as long as they, too, have set up the password!
Online play requires a (paid) subscription to “Nintendo Switch Online.”
PUZZLE BOBBLE VS SPACE INVADERS
But that’s not all! Puzzle Bobble Everybubble! also includes a very special game crossover: PUZZLE BOBBLE VS SPACE INVADERS, perfect to celebrate the 45th anniversary of one of the games that made arcade history, and, to be fair, most of our childhoods. In this mode, players try to erase the bubble-encapsulated Invaders by stacking three or more bubbles of the same color together, whilst avoiding the Invaders’ shots. Bubbles can only be fired straight up, so players have to move their characters left and right, just like in the universally beloved arcade game. Up to four players can play cooperatively.
