'Bubsy: Paws on Fire!' (ALL) Coming to PS4 and PC Next Week, But Delayed On Switch

The world's furriest egomaniac is back in an all new platformer/runner with more thrills, more friends, and more excitement.

Bubsy: Paws on Fire! is a new auto-runner featuring nobody’s favorite mascot!

Bubsy is back in his greatest adventure yet! Featuring four playable characters with their own unique playstyles, new moves never before seen in a Bubsy title, and over 100 levels, Paws on Fire is a game for Bubsy lovers and haters alike!

When I told my agent I wanted my next game to be my best yet, he reminded me I was no longer his client and had his number changed. Luckily the suc-... er, developers at Choice Provisions still agreed to partner up with me. It’s amazing what a couple of sharpened claws can get you in this world!

After some productive meetings and even more productive face scratches we agreed to work with Bubsy on creating an auto-runner worthy of his stature. And when that was done we scrapped it and made a good game instead.

Bubsy: Paws on Fire! will debut on PS4, and PC (Steam) as planned (May 16th), but the Nintendo Switch version was delayed until later this summer (a specific date will be announced later this month) to allow a bit more time for final adjustments.

“The Switch version of Bubsy: Paws on Fire is in great shape, we’re in the final push on some non-gameplay aspects on Switch”, said Mike Roush, Co-founder of Choice Provisions and general Bubsy nut.

In addition, both a regular and Limited-Edition Physical version of Paws on Fire will be available on AmazonBestBuy.comTarget.com, and GameStop for pre-book and at launch.

The Limited Edition Physical version on both PS4 and Switch both contain a CD sampler of the OST and a deluxe Player's Guide with never before seen images of Bubsy and his crew – only available in this super limited version. The Switch version only also includes a reversible custom cover.

Paws on Fire! marks Choice Provisions’ first foray into the highly competitive world of bobcat-based video games. It’s also set to be Bubsy’s biggest adventure yet, with features such as:

  • Four playable characters, each with their own unique game mechanics! Fly and shoot your way through the air as The Woolie, take it underground with Arnold’s bonus levels, or run your way to victory with Bubsy and Virgil Reality!
  • An all-new story featuring the unlikely alliance between Bubsy and his archrivals, The Woolies!
  • Over 140 levels and variations set across three different worlds!
  • Three different boss battles!
  • A unique combo system and set of leaderboards for every character!
  • A shop with costumes and cosmetics, all of which players can unlock just by playing the game. There are no in-game purchases!
  • Unique character dialog for every level!
  • A variety of unique collectible types, ensuring maximum re-playability!
  • The return of Oinker, Terri, Terry, and many other characters from previous Bubsy incarnations! We’ve even included Virgil Reality from the Bubsy pilot--we dug deep!

Bubsy: Paws on Fire! is coming to PS4 and PC (Steam) on May 16, 2019, with a Nintendo Switch version to follow later this summer.
