Parasol Stars: The Story of Bubble Bobble III release date

Today, ININ Games and Taito passed along the release date for Parasol Stars: The Story of Bubble Bobble III. It’s due out on July 11, 2024.

Parasol Stars: The Story of Bubble Bobble III, which originally came to the PC Engine, was announced for Switch almost a year ago. Originally, the plan was to launch the port last year, but it ended up seeing a delay.

Everything you need to know can be found in the following overview:

The legendary bubble dragons Bub and Bob are back… in human form!?

In this critically acclaimed Taitoclassic, available on modern consoles for the first time, the now-transformed Bubby and Bobby embark on a mission to save their neighboring planets. But this time, instead of blowing bubbles, our favorite duo swings colorful parasols filled with magical powers. Use parasols as a shield against enemy projectiles or stun, and pick up and throw foes as projectiles themselves!

Parasol Stars released in 1991 as the sequel to Rainbow Islands, marks the third installment in TAITO’s massively successful Bubble Bobble series of action platformers and has lost none of its colorful charm throughout the years.

High-score hunters can rejoice because just like in the bubble-filled predecessor skillful play will quickly fill the levels with sweet and fruity collectibles that can be gathered to climb the leaderboard.

Look out for a variety of pick-ups to be found granting you all sorts of special powers from bouncing energy balls to screen-clearing magic.

Play on your own or bring a friend and take on the challenging levels together! Just like using enemies as projectiles, flinging your buddy against the enemies could be a good strategy. But be careful, as you won’t only stun the enemy you hit but your buddy-turned projectile as well. In the 2-player co-op mode, tactical teamwork is key to clearing the levels and getting the highest scores.

Key Features

  • Addictive arcade-style gameplay

  • More Parasols! Enjoy the tactical depth of the action-filled 2-Player Co-op
