Bubsy: Paws on Fire! is about to arrive on Nintendo Switch and publisher Accolade has dropped a brand new launch trailer ahead of the game’s release on 28 August.
The upcoming return of the fiesty orange bobcat is not the first time that this retro icon has hit modern platforms. Back in 2017, the cat with a cutting tongue managed to make it back into the limelight when Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back hit PlayStation 4 and PC. Now the intrepid feline is coming to Nintendo Switch. After making a generally positive impact on its initial launch, Bubsy Paws on Fire! Is finally going mobile.

Bubsy: Paws on Fire! takes players on a brand new platforming adventure that sees Bubsy set against the nefarious scheming of Oinker P. Hamm and his plan to trap every animal in the universe in an “Amazootorium”. What follows is a plethora of platforming levels that wind their way through this brand new story. Featuring four playable characters, Three epic boss battles, and a whole host of unique character dialogue this looks like a fantastic addition for those of us that grew up with this alternative to the big two platforming giants.
This isn’t the first time that Bubsy the Bobcat has made it mobile. Bubsy 2 hit the Nintendo Gameboy and this is the first time since the mid-90s that Accolade has let Bubsy outside. The new trailer looks like a fair leg up on the monochrome colors of the Nintendo Gameboy, with some awesome looking 2.5 D graphics, a host of flashy weapons, and some incredibly detailed looking levels. This isn’t too much of a surprise. Bubsy: Paws of Fire! is developed by Gaijin Games, the studio behind the Bit.Trip series. With an eager fan base and a fantastic new trailer, we’re sure this one’s going to to be Paw-some. The game will soon be available over at the Nintendo eShop and in physical format major retailers.
