This will be the first time the iconic bubble dragons Bub and Bob are moving to the VR space. The game takes place in a first-person perspective as players burst bubbles matching colors with their bubble launcher. Earning coins, players can even activate VR-specific power-ups to give brand new tools for the game. You can check out the announcement trailer below!
Puzzle Bobble VR: Vacation Odyssey will feature 100 3D puzzle stages where you’ll aim, match, and burst! Fans will also be happy to know that ZUNTATA returns to create the soundtrack, including new and classic songs from the series.

Infinite mode will send an endless wave of bubbles for you to match with as you reach for high scores. Players will also be able to access a 1-on-1 online duel mode as they send jammer bubbles to thwart their opponents. Check out the gorgeous screenshots below.
