Bubsy the Bob­cat

Hyper - - FEATURE -

Bubsy – the sub­ject of the very first piece I ever wrote for Hyper, over ten years ago – re­turned last year for a re­boot that made so lit­tle im­pact that I’m not even go­ing to look up its name. Ev­ery­one’s favourite sneak­ily un­der­rated bob­cat de­serves a proper, uh, fourth-or-so chance, and what better se­ries to give him one than Smash Bros? His abil­ity to glide would make him easy to ma­noeu­vre back onto the fight­ing stage, and if he was any good - and pro play­ers started to use him reg­u­larly - the poor crea­ture, who has looked a tad fleabit­ten and ragged of late, could fi­nally find him­self on the mend. We’ve made enough fun of Bubsy – let’s give him a chance to be cool now.

Hurl­ing balls of yarn around, float­ing through the sky grace­fully, charm­ing his op­po­nents with wacky catch­phrases.
