June 8, 2017Written by Jason Dunning

Publisher Accolade, which closed in 2000, has announced that Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is coming to PlayStation 4 and PC in September 2017.

A platformer, and the first new Bubsy game since Bubsy 3D 20 years ago, The Woolies Strike Back carries this description:

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.

Discussing where he’s been these last 20 years, Bubsy said:

Yes, I know there are many question about where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing since Bubsy 3D (1996). After that games HUGE success, I decided to become a transmedia star and signed a multipicture picture deal with 4F Pictures, I could have gone with Roger Corman but I don’t go in for that highbrow stuff.

I was happily making my movies when a hungry director slipped a copy of the script for Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back under my door. I LOVED it instantly, besides it was my first game offer in 20 years!

Accolade says that, as part of their return, you can expect “classic all new, reimagined games from its vast catalog and brand new franchises.” Some of the franchises mentioned are Bubsy, Hardball, Slave Zero, Deadlock, Eradicator, and Redline.
