Two bubbly dinosaurs are bursting to get back into game when Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron’s Workshop launches on PC later this summer.
TAITO Corporation has announced that Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron’s Workshop is blowing onto PC later this summer with a new take on the iconic arcade title, and its nothing like the recent VR experience. Instead, the newest instalment in the Bubble Bobble franchise looks set to invite players to team up with Bub and Bob once more, bring along some friends, and even building their very own challenges in Workshop Mode.
While players going it alone will have the opportunity to take on all the original and downloadable content from the previous PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch releases, Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron’s Workshop will also let players gang up on stages. Extra attendees can wield newcomers Peb and Pab across 4 player couch co-op as they take on the arcade of the future. The foursome will blow and burst their way through 200 stages to defeat Bonner and Baron Von Blubba, using skill and plenty of entertaining gimmicks.
In addition to the colorful couch co-op, there’s also a classic arcade mode for long term fans of the series. A faithful port of the classic Bubble Bobble for 1-2 players, with scanlines and screen ratio options for a truly authentic arcade experience.While the arcade action in Bubble Bobble 4 Friends might be familiar to many of us, PC owners of the latest adventure are getting an extra special add on. The Barons Workshop takes the Mario maker concept and applies it to Bubble Bobble. Players picking up the PC version will be able to create new stages using dozens of block types, enemies and gimmicks unlocked as they play through the game.
If you’re interested in joining Bub and Bob, Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron’s Workshop will be available this summer on Steam for $39.99 / £30.99 / €39.99.
