Bluey: The Videogame is the official adaptation of Bluey, an insanely popular animated series ostensibly aimed at children, which parents in the audience are undoubtedly already very familiar with. Announced for release on PS5 and PS4 on 17th November, we'd be willing to bet this one could be average and still sell like gangbusters. Thankfully, the majority of the cast of the Emmy and BAFTA-award-winning series are reprising their roles, and it looks like some fun, co-op adventure is on the horizon for the young and the young-at-heart.
Perhaps the most oddly prescient breakthrough Australian cultural export since The Wiggles (potentially even since The Crocodile Hunter), kids can't get enough of the Heeler family, comprised of parents Bandit and Chilli, precocious daughter Bluey, and her younger sister, Bingo. This scribe can readily attest to the writing and quality of the show itself, which is at times laugh-out-loud and a bizarrely accurate depiction of modern Australian life.
