3DS eShop Bubble Pop World Fuses Match 3 Puzzle Action With Augmented Reality

The bubble pops this April in North America and Europe

Slovakian developer Cypronia has gotten in touch to share details on its latest 3DS eShop title, a unique release which mixes puzzle action with augmented reality.

Bubble Pop World uses the AR card which came with your 3DS system to create virtual puzzles which have to be removed by firing bubbles to create matches. A whole host of puzzle stages are promised, and you'll be able to create your own and share them with friends via a QR code. To round off the package there are a selection of arcade mini-games — which seem to revolve around peppering underwater creatures with deadly bubbles — also on offer.

The game will launch on the North American and European 3DS eShops in April.

The AR capabilities of the 3DS haven't been used to their full potential, so it's encouraging to see that indie developers are exploring what is possible on the console. Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think of this newly-announced release.
