Here's a name I haven't heard in a while in gaming and now it looks like Bubsy is coming back with a new title called Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back. Maybe you remember the bobcat here from the past titles that Accolade had brought us but given that it has been about twenty years since then we can give a pass. None of that changes the fact that Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back has been announced for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC with a hopeful release date in September for this platformer to finally make a comeback. Or at least find a new audience with the latest generation of gamers out there; as long as they are not all hung up on realistic and dark themes that are all the rage.
Not much has been given on Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back as of yet besides the following teaser trailer for the game, but I have a feeling this is all a lead up to something more at E3 in a few days. What we do see here is that the franchise is getting the makeover with the Havoc Game Engine and a whole lot more of the wisecracking fun that the character and franchise are known for. Mix in the new adventure where he is traveling around the world in search of the Golden Fleece and we will have another fun game to add to the collection. At least it seems that way for now.
Have a look at the latest tease for this Bubsy game just below and see what you may have missed out on for quite some time. Or at least look forward to in the not too distant future. Enjoy…
Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back — Teaser
Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is an all new Bubsy adventure featuring Bubsy in a bevy of exotic locations as he travels the planet looking for the beloved Golden Fleece. Bubsy must use all of his classic moves and a few new ones to dodge and out bobcat a battalion of Woolies, sharks and bess, not mention the gnarliest UFO bosses to ever grace a Bubsy adventure. The wisecracking lynx also adds over a 100 new one liners to his lexicon to keep fans guessing what he’ll say next!
Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back will also mark the return of the Accolade game brand. Accolade is well known to retro gamers everywhere for a series of arcade, action and sports classics from the mid 80’s to the 2000s.
