Friday 13 January 2006/... Rising Star Games, the European publishing arm of Japanese developer Marvelous Interactive, Inc., today released a set of new screenshots of Bubble Bobble Evolution, unveiling the all-new graphics engine and visual style that will help push the Bubble Bobble franchise forward from its arcade roots.
The screens, which were issued as the game saw its initial showing at an exclusive press event in central London, reveal the first Bubble Bobble title to be rendered in 3D polygons. The in-game action retains the essential core gameplay elements that made the arcade classic such an iconic design, but usher in a more developed visual style that provides increased detail to the game's participants and environments. Further light is also shed on the new puzzle-based gameplay features that validate the game's 'Evolution' philosophy.
Further details will emerge as the game nears its March 2006 release date.
