If you at all heard about the recent revival of Busby in The Woolies Strike Back and naturally assumed this outing was the final nail in the coffin for the anthropomorphic bobcat, think again. Accolade has now revealed the infamous video game mascot from the ’90s is returning in Bubsy: Paws on Fire.
The title is being developed by Choice Provisions – formerly known as Gaijin Games – and best known for creating the Bit. Trip series. Unlike the existing Bubsy release, this one will actually be making its way to Nintendo’s new platform at some point next year. Described as a game for Bubsy lovers and haters alike, the title will include four playable characters, new moves, collectibles, a unique combo system, an in-game cosmetic shop (not requiring real money), three boss battles and more than 100 levels.
The series first started out life in 1993 when Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind was released on multiple platforms including the Super Nintendo. Take a look at the trailer for the new game above and tell us what you think about Bubsy’s longtime return to a Nintendo platform.
