Bubble Symphony (バブルシンフォニー) is an entry in the Bubble Bobble series of games. Originally released in Arcades (and sometimes known as Bubble Bobble 2 due to it being the second arcade release with Bubble Bobble-style gameplay), it was brought to the Sega Saturn in 1997. The Saturn version, however, was only released in Japan.


Bubble Symphony expands on the gameplay seen in Bubble Bobble by adding a pair of female dragons, Kululun and Cororon, to play as. Each dragon now has their own different attributes and can be selected by the user. It also includes branching routes and improved graphics/sound.
