Publisher King Digital Entertainment, those people with the whole Candy Crush Saga debacle, announced Bubble Witch Saga 2. It’s a follow-up to one of their original success stories, started on Facebook in 2011.
Bubble Witch Saga 2 will continue the tradition of the game to pop bubbles suspended on the top of the screen. This model follows games like Bust-a-Move where players must match bubbles of similar colors by shooting other balls at them, like with billiards. Bubble Witch Saga 2 additionally builds on the model with a sort of pachinko or shuffleboard game element, where falling bubbles can drop into cauldrons of different point ranges.
Whereas the original release was set in the East and focused on evildoing, Bubble Witch Saga 2 will reverse its theme. So, this iteration takes place in the West and has you doing good deeds, in the form of a puzzle game, at least.
Bubble Witch Saga 2 will come soon to Facebook and mobile devices. Will this stop King stock from plummeting? Our guess is: No, it won’t. Its debut was set at a little over $21. It’s currently bouncing back to a little over $16.
