Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands WiiWare

Square Enix raids Taito cupboard.

A shellsuit-clad Square Enix plans to release Bubble Bobble Plus for WiiWare on 10th April, followed by Rainbow Islands: Towering Adventure sometime in May.

These retro revamps harken back to the 1980s, but have some modern-day twists to hide their wrinkles.

Bubble Bobble Plus, for instance, arrives with fancy four-player co-op for the first time. Plus, there are tons of levels to platform through and various modes to spice things up - including two expert modes with 100 extra levels.

Rainbow Islands: Towering Adventure returns with the regular Story mode, as well as a speed-based Challenge mode and Time Attack mode - where the toughest levels can be picked and then swiftly-bested for self satisfaction.

There's no word on a price for either just yet.
