Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back Gets a Release Date

Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back Gets a Release Date

Pray for this wretched world.

Halloween is the one day of the year we invite horrors to walk upon the earth, so it's only proper that the new Bubsy game will be released during our annual celebration of darkness.

Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is coming to PlayStation 4 and Steam this October 31. The release date was revealed in a new trailer, which also shows Bubsy jumping, gliding, climbing, and collecting yarn balls in the proper manner of a cat.

(What kind of cat is Bubsy, though? That's up for debate, despite his self-applied "Bobcat" hastag.)

Here we are, then. Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back comes out during October's dying hours. All that remains is to see if we live long enough to watch November dawn, or if we'll be pulled into a hellish orange vortex that spews catch phrases. Perform all the rituals and sacrifices necessary to beg your god's favor before the deadline. Maybe humanity can still be saved.
