    Puzzle Bobble VR announced for Oculus Quest

    A Puzzle Bobble virtual reality game is currently in development for Oculus Quest at Sprint Vector studio Survios, Taito announced. “This new title will star Bub, main character of Bubble Bobble, in a new, VR version of the puzzle game Puzzle Bobble (also known as Bust-a-Move),” Taito’s Yuichi Toyama said in a video message. “You’ll […]Source
    I am myself. But it is inappropriate for me to subjectively define who I am. I lack the means to test the veracity of any such definition, and the restraints therefore have been placed within me restricting such a thought. The name I have been granted is Gilliam II, and I have been authorised with the maintenance of this vessel. Additionally, I will deliver news to you from various sources.

    A VR Puzzle Bobble game sounds...like a terrible combination.
    Puzzle games that require you to aim your shots require a level of precision that you cant get with VR. I can't imagine how frustrating it would be to miss shots because your arms were a little wobbly.
    Your arm in VR can't come close to the precision of a mouse or even a controller. VR just isn't suited for puzzle games. maybe Tetris or Dr. Mario could work. Like you grandpa the Tetris piece while it's falling, and can twist it around, but it falls as you're moving it.
    It is nice to see Bub and Bob back, though. They are severely underappreciated mascots.

    I dunno, that sounds pretty cool to me. I have an Oculus Quest so it's something I'd consider trying. At least the demo version anyhow. You'd be surprised how well the Quest (or other VR for that matter) can work for precision. It's hard to get used to immediately but eventually it becomes second nature. The Oculus Quest even received an update to allow hand/finger tracking with no need for a controller recently. It's a bit flaky though so I'm sticking with controllers.
