Publisher ININ Games and developer Taito revealed new details for Puzzle Bobble Everybubble! and some of its new game modes.
Here’s a rundown on the new EX Stages and Memory Album modes, plus the new video for the modes:
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.
A video from the development staff and the title’s protagonist, Bub, showing actual gameplay footage of the EX stage and details of the announcement will premiere today, Friday 21st of April at 12:00 CEST on Bub’s YouTube channel, Bub’s Broadcast. Before the premiere release, a trailer of the video can be enjoyed here.
Puzzle Bobble Everybubble! is set to launch for Nintendo Switch on May 23rd. A physical version is being offered via Amazon and participating retailers.
