So far it’s looking really good, the gameplay of the arcade classic appears to be retained and we are promised 100+ levels of fun. The game also offers four player support and special maps for high score challenges.
Being a Taito game being published by Square Enix it is not surprising that downloadable content should be on offer. New map packs will cost 200 Wii points. The DLC promises a higher degree of difficulty for the expert player.
There is also wi-fi connection in the form of online leaderboards for all the different game modes. For 800 Wii points Bubble Bobble Wii is certainly shaping up to be one of the hottest games for 2009 on WiiWare. Let’s hope we spot a ESRB or OFLC rating soon so we know we won’t have to wait too much longer!
