I thought this was going to be a prank but nope. What may be the most infamous platform mascot from the 90s now has a new game for PC and PS4, 21 years after Bubsy 3D for PS mercilessly killed the franchise. Mercifuly thoguh, the gameplay for this new game takes more from the original SNES title. Gameplay Trailer.First 15 minutes.
The team behind this game has embraced the character's infamy
, as it probably couldn't be any other way. More surprisingly they also embraced the comparisons with Sonic The Hedgehog: its teaser trailer
had some shots suspiciously similar to that of Sonic Forces
, and of course there is this...
I haven't played the game yet but I can't help but be glad it exists. It seems to be decent and straightforward, fixing some of the problems with the original while retaining its spirit, though it does seem overpriced if it's as short as I've heard. I'm curious if it will reference the 3D game and/or the cartoon pilot. May as well go all the way with the self awareness.
