BOOM!: Hudson announces Bomberman Blast announced for North American WiiWare


10:21 AM on 08.26.2008



Hudson Entertainment has announced today that it will be publishing Bomberman Blast, a original Bomberman title being designed exclusively for the WiiWare on the Wii.

From what it sounds like, Bomberman Blast delivers more of the same Bomberman action we've come to love over the past 25 years. Of course, Hudson are throwing in a few new modes to trick us into thinking Blast is all "new." The game does support four players locally, up to eight players online, support for Miis (BomberMiis!), and leaderboards.

No word on launch date or pricing, but Hudson says it will be hosting online tournaments to coincide with the release of the title. And can we go back to the "25 years of Bomberman" thing again? Man, I feel old. Can you hear my bones creaking?

Oh, and before anyone asks, Bomberman Blast will not feature Mr. Destructoid like the Xbox LIVE Arcade Bomberman Live. Thanks for thinking of us, though. 

HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT'S BELOVED BOMBERMAN RETURNS FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ON THE WII

REDWOOD CITY, CA - August 26, 2008 - Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm for HUDSON SOFT, today announced that they are releasing Bomberman Blast, an all-new Bomberman for digital download for WiiWare on the Wii.
