The first ever Bluey video game is releasing on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC on November 17.
Outright Games, in partnership with BBC Studios, is opening up the world of the beloved animated preschool series and inviting you to join Bluey and her buddies in an all-new interactive sandbox adventure, aptly titled Bluey: The Videogame, that will give players free rein to explore Bluey’s house and several other iconic locations. – per IGN
I know what just went to the top of my Christmas list to Santa. And no, that isn’t a typo. I want this game!
I’ve been borderline obsessed with Bluey since I was first introduced to the show a few years ago. There’s something here for everyone, even people without kids.
For those who may have been living under a rock these last few years the best way to describe Bluey is that it’s a modern, kid-friendly version of the Simpsons. There’s the Dad (Bandit) who is often silly and immature but with a heart of gold. The Mom (Chilli) keeps the family together and the kids (Bluey and Bingo) are always using their imagination to get into mischief. But it’s also so much more than your traditional animated sitcom. They cover topics that include bullying, loss, and caring for each other. And the kids aren’t the only ones learning lessons. The parents are vulnerable and make mistakes. There is so much heart in these 8-minute episodes that it’s hard to put into words. You just need to watch it. (Available on Disney+)
All of those words are there to explain why I’m so excited about video game aimed at six-year-olds. I cannot wait to sit down with my sons (4 and 8) and wife (age not disclosed) and explore their world together. Even if the game is crap, that’s time and money well spent if I get to bond with my kids for even just a few hours. Bandit taught me that.
