BBC Studios and Outright Games have partnered to create the very first Bluey video game. Bluey: The Videogame is rated E for Everyone, so the whole family can gather around for some Bluey fun on Nov. 17.
In the game, players have a chance to experience Bluey’s world. Fans of all ages can explore Bluey’s house and other familiar locations from the series. Up to four Bluey fans can play at once as Bluey, her sister Bingo, Mum, and Dad.
The story-driven game features activities inspired by popular moments from the show and a new four-part storyline. Minigames like “Keepy Uppy” and “Magic Xylophone,” that true Bluey fans will recognize from the show, are available to play. Fans can also free-play in the sandbox and interact with loveable characters like Muffin.
Bluey: The Videogame is designed for a variety of different players and attention spans. Players can jump between activities, exploration, and story quests at any point. There are different difficulty settings, resulting in an accessible and fun experience for preschoolers and older fans. Variable difficulty features include user interface (UI) on/off toggle, simple written on-screen instructions, and full voice-overs.
Players have the opportunity to earn in-game rewards, such as stickers, new costumes, playable episodes, and locations. The video game also features voices from the English-speaking cast and music directly from the show. Fans can play while listening to familiar music from the show soundtrack, as well as original pieces created for the game.
“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,” says Stephanie Malham, Chief Operating Officer of Outright Games. “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.”
Bluey: The Videogame will be available on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 5, Playstation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC on Nov. 17.
