A Bluey video game is coming, and it sounds like it’s going to be fun for all ages (including parents, too)
If your kids (and you, it’s OK to admit it) are feeling a little lost without new episodes of Bluey, we have some great news! A video game based on the adorable heeler, her family, and friends is coming this fall. You and your kids will be able to step into Bluey’s shoes (paws?) to experience a new level of learning through play when Bluey: The Videogame drops on Nov. 17 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
“It’s very important for us to capture the essence of fun and games that is central to the series,” Kevin Jorge, Head of Games at BBC Studios, said in a statement. “We know fans will be excited to explore Bluey’s world and join in with the Heeler family’s antics.”
Up to four people can play at a time as Bluey, Bingo, Chilli, or Bandit. You’ll be able to navigate through scenes from the show, including the Heeler’s home, the playground, the beach, and more while completing challenges and activities. Rewards include fun costumes for your characters, stickers, playable episodes, and new locations. Minigames and challenges are inspired by the show—yes, that does mean you’ll get to play Keepy Uppy and Magic Xylophone. And because Bluey: The Videogame is made for players of all ages, you can set the difficulty level. The idea is that younger players should be able to explore at their own pace and feel accomplished as they play, but older fans should still feel challenged.
“It is always our goal to create games that can act as an entry point to the world of video games and to some of the most important entertainment franchises on the planet like Bluey,” Stephanie Malhan, COO of Outright Games, said in a press release. “It’s a thrill for us to bring Bluey’s world to life with a level of interactivity that has never been seen before, and by ensuring that the game is accessible and enjoyable for all ages we know fans across the globe will be delighted.”
Since we haven’t had any new Bluey episodes to watch since July, this news couldn’t come at a better time. Now to make our rewatch last the two months until the game comes out.
