News: Ignition plans to pop some Bubble Bobbles on American handhelds.



Ignition Entertainment has announced they've reached a deal with Marvelous Entertainment to bring three of Marvelous' games to America in early 2008.

The three games involved in the deal include Rainbow Islands Evolution for the PSP and Bubble Bobble: Double Shot & New Zealand Story Revolution for the DS. Details on the three games can be found below.



Bubble Bobble Double Shot (Nintendo DS)
Bub and Bob are back! Bubble Bobble Double Shot is a respectful return to the series' roots, bringing Bubble Bobble to the DS with new additions to the classic formula. Based on the original Bubble Bobble arcade game first released in 1986, Bubble Bobble Double Shot stars the two Bubble Dragons, Bub and Bob who move over a system of platforms, busting and pushing bubbles, avoiding enemies and collecting a variety of power-ups. Bubble Bobble Double Shot for DS features a perfect re-creation of Bubble Bobble's frantic platforming gameplay, complete with all the secrets and fun gameplay that made the original such a rewarding game to master.

Rainbow Islands Evolution (PSP)
A cult classic arcade game from Taito, Rainbow Islands Evolution for the PSP system is another sequel in the Bubble Bobble franchise. Set once again in Rainbow Islands, Bub and Bob are now under the shadow of an evil record company who is polluting the ecosystem with a constant, mass-produced musical dirge. Only Bub and Bob have the experience to take on the record company and its seven bosses, setting the stage for a new adventure. The strict vertical ascents of the original have been expanded and extrapolated into three dimensions, with each level's building-block platforms now following perspective and disappearing into the distance.

New Zealand Story Revolution (Nintendo DS)
New Zealand Story Revolution is an accurate re-telling of the timeless 1988 original, The New Zealand Story. Starring Tiki, a plucky Kiwi bird, the gameplay revolves around him rescuing his kidnapped friends from the clutches of a villainous leopard seal. The setting for each of the game's levels remains untouched from the classic game, though the layouts will be remixed to provide fresh new challenges. The game offers updated high-quality graphics, while also retaining the clean lines of its arcade ancestor.

We'll have more on all three of these titles soon.
