Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back screenshot of Bubsy falling into the screen

For those of you that might not know, the Bubsy series pretty much went extinct after Bubsy 3D - perhaps the very worst 3D platformer ever crated by a professional studio. And no, I am not exaggerating when I say that given that I am one of the few idiots that bought it back in the day. It really is as atrocious as people say!

As such, I am both surprised and somewhat happy to announce that the Bubsy series is being resurrected through the newly announced Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back. However, instead of being a continuation of the 3D series, The Woolies Strike Back is going to be based around the original 2D platformers. If you're wondering what all of this might look like, here's the recently posted teaser trailer:

While my gut instinct is to run away screaming, this project does have a bit of potential given that its being developed by Black Forest Games. You might know them from their reboot of The Great Giana Sisters which resulted in the surprisingly enjoyable Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams. So while the trailer might not inspire much confidence, there is a chance Bubsy could redeem himself for all of his past mistakes and star in an actually enjoyable game once more.

There is currently no release date available, but you can expect to see Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back in the Fall of 2017. If you would like to learn more you should head over to the official website, but don't expect to find much as all of this is only a brief teaser.
