Developer Taito announced Puzzle Bobble Everybubble! will include a gameplay mode based on Space Invaders to celebrate its 45th anniversary.
Here’s a rundown on the new mode:
To celebrate Space Invaders’ 45th anniversary, we’re announcing a new game featuring a collaboration between Space Invaders and Puzzle Bobble.
In this mode, players try to erase the bubble-encapsulated invaders by sticking three or more bubbles of the same color together.
Bubbles can only be fired straight up, so players move their characters left and right to aim and defeat the incoming invaders while dodging their attacks.
Up to four players can play cooperatively.
Puzzle Bobble Everybubble! is set to launch sometime in spring 2023 for Switch, via both the eShop and retail.
