These stylish Rainbow Islands Game Socks feature the famous rainbow from the video game, Rainbow Islands!
Rainbow Islands Game Socks are a tribute to Rainbow Islands: The Story of Bubble Bobble 2 (レインボーアイランド). Developed and published in 1987, it is an arcade game by Taito. Romstar licensed the a version for North American manufacturing and distribution. The game’s subtitle is “The Story of Bubble Bobble 2” as the sequel to Taito’s hit game Bubble Bobble from the previous year. Rainbow Islands is the second of four arcade games in the Bubble Bobble series (followed by Bubble Symphony and Bubble Memories, but itself has two direct sequels: Parasol Stars and Bubble Bobble Part 2). The game was ported for numerous home computers and game consoles.
Bubblun and Bobblun are the main characters and the protagonists of Bubble Bobble (known as “Bub and Bob” in the western releases). They appear in their human forms as “Bubby” and “Bobby” in this game, as opposed to the “bubble dragons” of the first game (following on from the first game’s true ending). Players now “alternate” (i.e., take turns), with player one as Bubby (green shirt), and player 2 as Bobby (blue shirt) (the same color scheme as in the first game) where in the first game, both players are simultaneous.
