Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron is Back! Now Has Official Release Date

Fans of the charming Bubble Bobble 4 Friends game will be glad to know that the new and improved version, Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron is Back!, finally has a release date as announced by ININ Games and Taito.

Those who are interested in getting their hands on this game have the option to either purchase it digitally or physically. That being said, those who already have the original game don’t need to buy it again since all the additional content made available in The Baron is Back! will be offered through a free update.

One of the exciting new features in this updated version comes in the form of a fan-favorite character. More specifically, Baron con Blubba will be returning in this game, as the title suggests.

Among other things, players will be able to enjoy online ranking, 200 levels of gameplay, a co-op mode that allows up to four players, as well as the original arcade version of Bubble Bobble. This will surely take players on a trip down memory lane.

You can check out the official trailer below, which was released back in August:

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron is Back! will surely keep players entertained for hours since the game has double the number of levels as compared to the previous title. In addition to that, the inclusion of the Baron provides a whole different level of difficulty to the game, especially since he is an invincible villain.

As such, players have to do everything they can to evade the Baron all while fending off the other monsters present in the stage.

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends was initially released in March of this year, and it was a Nintendo Switch exclusive during that time. Now, this upcoming title is set to release on both the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch, so more fans will be able to experience this enjoyable, bubble-bursting game.

That being said, purchasing Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron is Back! when it gets released this November 17 will give players access to the entirety of the game and all its features. In other words, those who are itching to try out the game and everything it brings to the table won’t need to wait for the free update if they don’t want to.


As briefly mentioned, players can experience Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron is Back! with their friends or family members via the couch co-op mode. It’s the perfect game to play on a relaxing weekend or during a virtual get-together with pals amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

If you want to remain updated regarding the game’s progress and development, you can go ahead and follow either the publisher or the developer on their social media platforms.

Asides from Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron is Back!, there’s another Bubble Bobble game that’s currently in the works. A few months ago, Taito revealed that Puzzle Bobble VR is something that it’s currently working on for the Oculus Quest users.

Sadly, we’re still waiting for more information regarding this upcoming VR experience. For now, though, we can all look forward to reuniting with the Baron this November 17.
