Finally, the online 1v1 Duel Mode supports matches across the three different ways to play. 

Puzzle Bobble 3D: Vacation Odyssey will also be adding multiple language support including Spanish, Japanese and EFIGS. Players who own the Oculus Quest VR-only version of the game, Puzzle Bobble VR: Vacation Odyssey, will automatically receive this update.

For the first time in thirty five years of Puzzle Bobble history, the spherical conundrums take stunning 3D forms to create brain-boggling challenges which will test the most die-hard veterans and newcomers to the franchise alike.

Puzzle Bobble (a.k.a. Bust-A-Move) is an action-puzzle game where the brothers Bub and Bob, who have been transformed into bubble dragons by a wizard’s spell, search for a way to turn back into human form in a bubble-bursting adventure. The classic gameplay formula is simple but addictive: using various items and gimmicks, connect three or more bubbles of the same colour to remove them from the field and progress. A spin off from the 1986 arcade hit Bubble Bobble, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, Bust-A-Move/Puzzle Bobble has seen over 20 series titles across countless platforms since its 1994 debut. As sole owners of Bubble Bobble and Puzzle Bobble’s worldwide IP and copyrights, Taito will continue to expand both properties going forward.
