This was one of the worse platformer in the 16-bit era right?

Accolade returns, announces Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back for PS4, PC -- Due out this fall. What could possibly go wrong?

Accolade, a publisher that operated from 1985 to 2000, has returned in 2017 with the announcement of Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back for PlayStation 4 and PC, the first new Bubsy game since Bubsy 3D for the original PlayStation in 1997.

Due out this fall, Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is a new adventure developed by Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams studio Black Forest Games. It features Bubsy in “a bevy of exotic locations” as he travels the planet in search of the “beloved Golden Fleece.” Bubsy will use all of his classic moves in addition to new ones to “dodge and out-bobcat a battalion of Woolies, sharks, and bees, not to mention the gnarliest UFO to ever grace a Bubsy adventure.” Over 100 new one-liners have been added to his lexicon as well.

Get the teaser trailer and an Accolade-provided “one-on-one interview” with Bubsy himself below. View the first set of screenshots at the gallery.

One-on-One Interview with Bubsy the Bobcat

Bubsy the Bobcat was a gaming legend in the 90s with titles on the Jaguar, SNES, PlayStation, Genesis and PC that skyrocketed to the middle of the charts. Suddenly, Bubsy was gone… he dropped out of sight, left the business and left no forwarding address. In 2015 Bubsy Two-Fur, a Bubsy homage, appeared on Steam with the help of the votes of over 60,000 fans (and a few against). Today, following the announcement of the all new Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back, we sat down with the elusive Bobcat and discussed his past, his disappearance and the new game.

Reporter: Bubsy, why after all these years are you coming back now?

Bubsy: I found a residual check for Bubsy Two-Fur in my PO Box. That’s when I knew: Yeah, I’m thinking I’m back.

Reporter: So you were out the game business entirely before then. How did you live? What did you do to earn a living?

Bubsy: I realized that I couldn’t get any lower after the unauthorized indie pixel games and deeveeart portraits. But then I got a call from a Q-List producer from Liechtenstein. Seems Liechtenstein is the 6th smallest country but also the richest! Plus, they LOOOOVE me there.

Reporter: So you made more games?

Bubsy: I made movies… Really bad movies. Like, Bubsy 3D… bad movies.

Reporter: Would we have heard of any of them?

Bubsy: I don’t know…. The Good, The Bad and the Bobcat, Bubsy and the Lost Ark, Bobcats of the Caribbean, and of course my favorite, The Sound of Bubsy, a musical starring me and Julie Anderson.

Reporter: These all sound weirdly familiar.

Bubsy: Of course they do! It’s Liechtenstein. There are like 7 people, but tickets are REEALLY expensive.

Reporter: So why did you stop?

Bubsy: A lawyer finally moved into Liechtenstein and told the producer that he couldn’t make “other peoples’” movies anymore.

Reporter: And then came Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back?

Bubsy: Well, I moved back to LA – but they had already rented out the apartment I had 20 years ago, those monsters. I was pretty down on my luck and considered auditioning as Crash Bandicoot’s stunt double.

Reporter: No!

Bubsy: Yeeeesssss! But then I got THE call.

Reporter: From Accolade?

Bubsy: I don’t know, my agent got the call. Anyway, I read the script.

Reporter: And you loved it!

Bubsy: It stars ME! I have all the dialog, what’s NOT to love! AND, they were going to pay me! Also, I thought the modern retelling of the story of man as told by a Bobcat, was pretty cool too.

Reporter: …it’s a platforming game right?

Bubsy: Running, jumping, gliding… they’re all metaphors for life. Just ask Mario.

Reporter: Do you know Mario?

Bubsy: No, what’s your point?

Reporter: Do you think the new game, Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back will propel you back to the top? Errr the middle?

Bubsy: I’m counting on it!

Reporter: Well, what could possibly go wrong?

Not sure that anyone cares but this is just another company using the Accolade name not the original company. They are owned by what's left of Infogrames/Atari.

Hell yeah!

This is the sequel that people most wanted to happen.

This takes down Shemue 3 as the most anticipated game on ps4.
