Hudson's bread-and-butter bombers now marching to Sony's portable alongside Wii version and DS sequel in January.
First revealed during the 2006 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Hudson's Bomberman Land on the Wii has apparently been stockpiling its arsenal on the down low. However, Hudson today has announced that not only will its charmingly disarming demolitions experts be ready to wage war this January, but they will march alongside a PlayStation Portable version of the game as well as Bomberman Land Touch! 2 on the Nintendo DS.
Similar to 2006's Bomberman Land Touch! on the DS, Bomberman Land on the Wii and PSP and Touch! 2 on the DS will ship out with more than just the classic multiplayer battle mode. In the minigame mode, players must avoid blowing themselves up in 50 different situations for the Wii and PSP game and 40 in the DS sequel.
The games will also feature a story mode, where the titular hero attempts to bring peace to his world, one bomb at a time. Lastly, the battle pack mode offers players classic Bomberman multiplayer action. The PSP and DS games will support game sharing, where only one player needs to have a cartridge for local multiplayer games.
Bomberman Land on the Wii and PSP and Bomberman Land Touch! 2 on the DS have not yet been priced or rated. However, the original Bomberman Land Touch! was rated E for Everyone.
Why is it that Worms and Bomberman Live, seem to be much, much better games then the new Worms and Bomberman games coming to the consoles? Really, how is it that a XBLA games looks so much better then a full fledged console game? Kinda sad if you asked me. I played Open Warefare 2, it was mediocre at best. I don't expect anything better then that for Bomberman Land or that other Worms game coming to the Wii. Maybe I'm wrong, but I doubt it. >_>
well actuall its worse than exspected, it was made for the psp and then ported the wii and ps2. but if its like that korean game bomberman online, the hell yeah.
Wait, also for PS2? What that means is it was originally developed for PS2 and the graphics are gonna be half-assed over to the wii. I hope that's not the case, but I can't fight the feeling. Hopefully wi-fi multiplayer can help make up for it.
Note that the only thing that made Bomberman Land Touch any good was the fact that it included the original-style Bomberman game with Wi-Fi. I sincerely doubt another half-arsed minigame collection mode is going to make this worth another $30. Though at least this time around the PSP crowd gets a taste. If the graphics are sweet enough, I guess I'd buy it for that system. But I don't see the point of another on DS, is all.
As long as all three versions have online multiplayer on the Battle Pack and that all three versions do something to distinguish themselves (instead of all using the same minigames and one versions making it touch controlled, another button and another motion) so that each is worth it alone. I loved the first one.
Bomberman Land Touch! had some interesting mini-games. I would like to see what they can churn up for the wii.
