I love the original Bubble Bobble, but when was the last time they made a version that wasn't terrible?

I think the newest DS one was pretty good besides the game ending bug.

Bubble Bobble is one of the few games where the same song looped NEVER gets irritating. I see it also has the original remade! And four player?!?! Yippee!

Exactly. I am glad to see some companies having packed Wii Ware games for $8.

It is kind of funny it looks to be more fully featured then most of the recent Bubble Bobble games, except this is $8 instead of $30!

There are more ways to mess level designs up than I can count.

There is downloadable content as well.  Including another 100 challenge stages (read very hard)

I like Bubble Bobble, the last game I bought was Bubble Bobble Old and New which was awesome, except I could only play it by myself...but honestly, the song DOES get annoying after awhile.

I loved this game back in my famicom, but since we had only access to funny chinese pirate cartridges of 1000 in 1 games the title was completly different, something like yankenpo or similar. I'll be paying attention to this!.

-Standard Map: The classic game, for up to two players
-Arrange Map: New maps, for up to four players
-Super Standard Map: Same classic maps, but with harder enemies
-Super Arrange Map: Same new maps, but with harder enemies
-Expert Map-1: DLC 200 Wii Points
-Expert Map-2: DLC 200 Wii Points
-Modes: Play or Ranking
-Ranking includes Japan or Worldwide (reconfirmed release outside of Japan)
-2d maps, 3d characters
-classic Bubble Bobble theme in Standard maps, new song in Arrage maps


You can choose to play these modes in either Play Mode or Ranking Mode. The Rankings have listings for Japan and Worldwide, so that confirms an English release.

The game's graphics are decent enough. Maps are 2D, player and enemies are 3D and animated decently at best.  You get the classic Bubble Bobble theme in the standard map modes and a new(?) theme in the arrange maps.
