Bubble Bobble Plus Gets Rated for Western Release

We’ve slowly been getting more and more excited about Taito’s WiiWare update of its classic Bubble Bobble coin-op, but so far our anticipation has been checked by the fact that the game looked destined to remain a Japan-only release.

Thankfully our scepticism was unfounded as the game has just been rated on the German USK database, making a Western release a formality. It's also gained a shiny new title for its Western debut - Bubble Bobble Plus.

Now if only we could convince Taito to abandon the rather unusual 3D character models. You can check out some of the latest screens in our gallery below.
