Parasol Stars is the story of Bubble Bobble III

Settle down, kids, and let’s tell you a story. Back in 1991, Parasol Stars released as the third in the line of popular platforming series Bubble Bobble, as a sequel to the second game in the franchise – Rainbow Islands. Now, Parasol Stars is available on modern consoles for the first time, providing an intense hit of nostalgia for all that remember the iconic original.

Meet Bub & Bob

Now available on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch, Parasol Stars: The Story of Bubble Bobble III (to give it its full name) sees dragons Bubby and Bobby set off on a mission to save multiple worlds from invading forces. 

In order to do so, they will jump all around the place, but instead of the traditional bubble-blowing attacks, they will be weidling powerful parasols. These umbrellas contain magic powers that can act defensively (ie. shield against incoming projectiles) or offensively (such as by stunning enemies to allow for them to be used as projectiles themselves!).

Double the fun comes in the form of two-player local co-op, in which you can use each other to dispose of enemies even more effectively.

Key Features

  • Addictive arcade-style gameplay
  • Creative and clever game mechanics with magical Parasols
  • More Parasols! Enjoy the tactical depth of the action-filled 2-Player Co-op
  • A cosmic journey with 8 vibrant planets (and 2 secret bonus levels)
  • Catchy and memorable soundtrack

Play Now!

Parasol Stars: The Story of Bubble Bobble III is now available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and Switch. You can find it over on the Xbox Store for £8.79.

Parasol Stars: The Story of Bubble Bobble III Description

The legendary bubble dragons Bub and Bob are back… in human form!?

In this critically acclaimed Taito classic, available on modern consoles for the first time, the now-transformed Bubby and Bobby embark on a mission to save their neighboring planets. But this time, instead of blowing bubbles, our favorite duo swings colorful parasols filled with magical powers. Use parasols as a shield against enemy projectiles or to stun, pick up and throw foes as projectiles themselves!

Parasol Stars released in 1991 as the sequel to Rainbow Islands, marks the third installment in Taito’s massively successful Bubble Bobble series of action platformers and has lost none of its colorful charm throughout the years.

I'm an avid gamer who will play pretty much anything... but stick an open world or adventure game in front of me and I'm more than happy.
