Originally expected in September, Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is releasing on October 31 for PlayStation 4 and PC, Accolade announced today. The digital version will cost $29.99.
Bubsy is also getting a limited boxed version on PS4 called the Purrfect Edition that will be available through Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, and other select retailers. Priced at $39.99, it will include a soundtrack CD, Mystery Bubsy Movie Poster postcard, and Bubsy’s official business card.
Here’s the description for Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back:
Our favorite Bobcat is making a triumphant return 20 years after virtually disappearing from the world stage (N64/PS1). Yes, that’s right, Bubsy is back and starring in an all new adventure, Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back! Yep, those no good, yarn stealing always annoying intergalactic trolls, the Woolies, are up to their no good ways once again! They’ve stolen Bubsy’s most prized possession, the Golden Fleece. Now Bubsy is on a one Bobcat mission taking on Woolies, Bumble Bees, Sharks, and UFO’s to collect an insane amount of yarnballs and bring his Holy Grail of Wool home.
2D, or not 2D? Bubsy thinks 3D is so 1998 that he’s going back to the 2D well with a huge assist with his good friends at Black Forest for 14 rip roaring levels of side scrolling action. Watch Bubsy glide like Bat, jump like a jack rabbit, bounce like a red rubber ball and run…run Bubsy run. This is the Bubsy adventure you were born to play.
As mentioned above, the new Bubsy game is being developed by Black Forest Games, who was just acquired by THQ Nordic.
