News has reached us today, April 1st, that Bub, star of the Bubble Bobble and Puzzle Bobble series has multiplied en masse and is advancing on Tokyo.
Readers may recall an event 7 years ago today when Bub grew to giant proportions and went on a rampage.
Our intrepid reporting team captured the following footage of the invasion taking place.
Our footage confirms earlier reports that there are 35 Bubs in total.
So, did you enjoy our April Fools?
It's been 35 years since 1986 when Bubble Bobble first appeared in arcades. In other words, it's been 35 years since Bub was born, hence the celebratory number of Bubs and we'll have a suitably celebratory logo coming soon!!
Adorable Bub gifs available now (not an April Fool!)
As part of the celebrations, we've prepared a series of 10 gifs which can be used on social media. Let's see if we can cause another invasion by Bub, but this time over social media!
