Bubsy in: The Purrfect Collection Announced for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC - News

Publisher Atari and developer Limited Run Games have announced Bubsy in: The Purrfect Collection for the PlayStation 5Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. It will launch in 2025.

Read details on the game below:

Is Bubsy a celebrated icon from the mascot wars of the early 90s or a platforming punchline? The team at Limited Run has built a new collection to find the answer. Bubsy in: The Purrfect Collection explores the franchise’s troubled history and enduring popularity.

Bubsy in: The Purrfect Collection is a playable history that includes games, artifacts and interviews. All of the games have been carefully updated for modern PCs and consoles using Limited Run’s proprietary Carbon Engine. Along the way the team was able to smooth out some of the games’ rough edges.

At the helm of the project is Limited Run’s Audi Sorlie, a producer, author, Bubsy World Heavyweight Champion and arguably the world’s foremost expert on the furry franchise. Together with the team at Limited Run and Atari, he has created the ultimate retrospective celebration of Bubsy, the 3’6” tall 80 pound bobcat (with a pet armadillo named Arnold). What could possibly go wrong?

What is the Carbon Engine?

Created internally at Limited Run Games, the Carbon Engine is a development tool that allows legacy content to be ported to modern platforms. It uses emulation as a base, on top of which the Carbon Engine builds features like UI, rendering, audio, data management, controller inputs, and console-specific SDK features like trophies. It allows Limited Run to put out highly accurate, emulation-based ports of classic games for modern hardware. Old, well-loved releases can find a second wind on all-new hardware using the Carbon Engine. It is a core component of Limited Run’s vision for a world that is Forever Physical.

After years of supporting the site, he was brought on in 2010 as a junior analyst, working his way up to lead analyst in 2012 and taking over the hardware estimates in 2017. He has expanded his involvement in the gaming community by producing content on his own YouTube channel and Twitch channel. You can contact the author on Twitter @TrunksWD.

I'd be dumb enough to buy it just for the first Bubsy game (the only one I've ever played) which is one of the best plateform games I've ever played.

Honestly, I never got past the Wild West stages. Apparently I never saw the second half of the game. There’s fun to be had for me before that point.

The Windows 95 port of the first Bubsy would be interesting if they included it. It’s a neat version.

Sprite work re-drawn for a higher resolution. Improved audio, probably less compressed. Level titles narrated, 3D cutscenes. You could collect all 20 portions of the cartoon pilot within the game. I think that’s pretty much it.
