London (21 January 2011) – Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces PUZZLE BOBBLE UNIVERSE™, the latest adventure in the classic puzzle series, is heading to Europe and PAL territories exclusively on the NINTENDO 3DS™.  The game is due for release during the 3DS Launch Period.

PUZZLE BOBBLE UNIVERSE sees brothers Bub and Bob facing more bubble trouble as they stumble across an unmanned spaceship and a distant cry for help.  Unknown to the dinosaur duo, several surrounding planets have “doors” in their vicinity which have been opened, releasing floods of bubbles that are rapidly turning into hazardous space-debris.  With Bob captured by the Boss, Bub must act fast to ensure the future safety of all the planets and their inhabitants.

Larry Sparks, Vice President Brands PAL Region of Square Enix Ltd. comments, “PUZZLE BOBBLE UNIVERSE sees the colourful classic get a 3D makeover. The gameplay mechanics and vibrant visuals associated with the series perfectly suit the new console’s capabilities.  PUZZLE BOBBLE UNIVERSE is sure to be a must-have title for any 3DS owner.”
