King has tried (but done an unconvincing job) of hiding Bubble Witch Saga 3 which has just softlaunched in the Philippines.

On the surface, the game codenamed Wilbur just appears to be another Match-3 puzzler. Except that King has named the APK package file "com.king.bubblewitch3"

Oops.

Also, Wilbur is the name of the evil cat the Bubble Witches have to thwart.

And if you're somehow still not convinced, you only need to look at the images above which show a familiar looking witch popping bubbles.

The evidence. It adds up.

The game appears to be the same as previous installments with players firing bubbles into the air to create chains for big points ala Puzzle Bobble.

Bubble Wi.. (ahem) Wilbur still has recognisable power-ups, as well as the online leaderboards you've come to expect from the series.

We quite liked Bubble Witch Saga 2 but were less of a fan of its IAP and random reward system. Hopefully King has learned some lessons from that.

There's no official release date yet, but we'll keep you updated. Just try and act a little bit surprised when it's announced, ok?
