Calling all five Bubsy fans! After a last-minute Nintendo Switch exclusive delay, Bubsy: Paws on Fire! will finally release for the platform on Aug. 29 this year. The launch trailer shows off the platforming, four playable characters, and a costume shop to customize Bubsy how you’ve always wanted.
Here’s the rundown of the epic story from Nintendo’s official website.
From the developers of the BIT.TRIP series comes Bubsy: Paws on Fire!, the latest and greatest in bobcat-based gaming. Oinker P. Hamm is determined to capture every animal in the universe for his “Amazootorium.” Bubsy, fearing mostly for himself, is just as determined to stop him. Two archrivals, stitched together by the cruel knitting needles of fate. No matter who emerges victorious, there is one thing we know for certain: There’s going to be a whole lot of yarn along the way.
Choice Provisions is on the helm of this new Bubsy adventure. Bubsy: Paws on Fire! brings additional characters with new gameplay modes like flying saucers and 3D tunnels.
Bubsy was absent for 21 years before Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back released for PS4 and PC exclusively in 2017. Now even more of us can get in on the Bubsy fun, and with portability as well. We’ve been waiting for another Bubsy to play on the go since 1994’s Bubsy II.
Nintendo Switch Lite will be releasing a mere three weeks after Bubsy: Paws on Fire!, and there are probably worse games in the universe to break in the system with than this one.
