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

10:21 AM on 08.26.2008 // Nick Chester

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. 


Award-Winning Series Will Deliver 8-Person Online Multiplayer Combat And Mii Support For Hardcore Fans & Casual Gamers

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. Retaining the classic features Bomberman fans have come to love such as online multiplayer battles and numerous arenas,  Bomberman Blast also incorporates new gameplay elements, including the use of Mii support and 8-person online multiplayer - the first time for Bomberman on Wii!

"The Bomberman franchise is one of Hudson Entertainment's most popular," said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment. "We're driven by the support of the fans and strive to provide unique new gameplay features with each new Bomberman title to please the longtime fans, as well as make the game accessible
to newcomers."

Fans of the popular series will be able to compete either solo or as part of a team against the best Bomberman players worldwide, as Bomberman Blast delivers 8-player multiplayer battles online. By using their Miis, gamers will have the opportunity to definitively prove who has the best Mii by sending them into a Bomberman Blast arena, then blowing away the competition! Now who has the best Mii?

Bomberman Blast is the perfect party game, allowing players from around the world to join in on the fun. Up to four players on the same Wii can hop online. Even more, an online leaderboard shows just how good you are! Bomberman Blast is exactly what players would expect from a Bomberman game, with more ammunition, more online battles, and now,
the support of Miis!

With the release of Bomberman Blast on WiiWare, Hudson Entertainment will offer several online tournaments, including one that coincides with the game's launch. For more information on the upcoming tournaments and to register, players can visit

Just a reminder that you have until the 30th to get your Bloggers Wanted post, "Thankful it's over" in. I'm either going to tell you how I ruined my best online gaming experience or rip Twilight Princess a new one. Maybe both.

Huh. I just found out the developers of Hatred (remember that controversy?) region-locked their game to prevent it from being accessed by Australians. Destructive Creations are more censor-happy than Nintendo, it seems. Where's the outrage?
Oh yeah, I have an account on this site.

Got Resident Evil 4 Wii for $5. Uh ... this might be my favorite version. I'm just getting headshots nonstop. Did I miss any other Wii games that are frequently overlooked? Like, really obscure Wii games that no one talks about? I'm interested.

Update: played through Hyper Dimension Neptunia Rebirth, reminded why I don't like the series, and requested a refund on it and its sequel. Not sure if they'll refund the sequel, but if they honor at least the first, I'll use that money to get Undertale.

I hope the new Star Wars movie answers the biggest question I have about the franchise; do Midi-Chlorians poop?

If anyone is interested, Amazon has the $80 Persona Q limited edition at just over $40 right now. Haven't beaten it yet, but it's been a ton of fun so far, and at that price, hey!

I don't know what's been going on, but I actually feel like I have to fight with the formatting of the blog editor now to get it right. Hope it'll settle down soon.
