Bluey: The Videogame announced, coming this fall


19 September 2023

Bluey, a popular Australian children's show, is getting a video game, with a release date scheduled for this fall.

Bluey: The Videogame, as you might assume, is based on the Emmy and BAFTA award-winning TV show. It follows Bluey, as well as her mother, father, and sister, Bingo. And it is with these people that the fun and games begin. Bluey, like every other youngster her age, enjoys playing games. Her vitality comes to the fore here, with laughter drawing her family and the entire neighborhood into her world of joy. Bluey exemplifies the joyous simplicity found in families by making ordinary times into adventures.

Bluey: The videogame will immerse you in this world. As an interactive sandbox adventure, players will be able to navigate faithfully reproduced and iconic sites such as Bluey's home, which will be completely explorable for the first time. There will also be the option to participate in story-driven episodic gaming. This includes activities inspired by fan favorites from the show. There will also be a new four-part plot. This will be made in collaboration with Artax Games, BBC Studios, and the show's producers at Ludo Studio.

However, the multiplayer mode is where this should really shine. Bluey, her sister Bingo, Mum, and Dad can all be played by up to four players. Then, using minigames from the program, they'll try to channel their inner Bluey. As you accomplish activities to gain in-game awards, 'Keepy Uppy' and 'Magic Xylophone' will be there. New outfits, stickers, playable episodes, and locales will be included.

And, yes, the game's English-speaking voice cast will be present. Bandit (David McCormack) and Chilli (Melanie Zanetti) will be among them. Several of composer Joff Bush's classic, chart-topping Bluey music tunes will also be featured on the game's soundtrack. However, all new music made by the development team should be expected.

"Bluey: The Videogame" was created with flexibility in mind, allowing fans to interact with and explore the game at their own leisure, with the opportunity to jump between story missions, activities, and exploration at any moment. 

Variable difficulty elements, such as UI on/off toggle, simple textual on-screen instructions, and full voice-over, have been included to make the game accessible and exciting for both preschool and older fans. Players will be able to handle things, interact with the world around them, provide additional difficulties to mini-games, and facilitate free-play in the sandbox using physics-based principles.

Bluey: The Video Game will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC on November 17.
