Bomberman Land Hits Retail on the Wii, PSP and the DS
Feel me, touch me, kiss me, bomb me.
All three versions are now available for $29.99 with each having its own unique blend of mini-games and playstyles. The Wii and PSP versions feature around 50 mini-games with the DS boasting a slightly reduced number at 40. Mini-games and the like on the DS will utilize the stylus and the microphone, and similarly, the Wii version will do what it can with the system's waggle controls. The PSP will be the most conventional of the three, but will possess the greatest number of multiplayer enabled game modes.
Both handheld versions will have global online play for up to 4 players with the DS allowing an additional 8 player local multiplayer mode. To make up for its lack of online compatibility, the Wii version will have a total of six different battle modes, each made specifically to take advantage of the Wii Remote. These modes will have 20 levels a piece, bringing the total number of traditional-style levels to 120.
"As one of the most recognizable video game franchises in the industry,
the Bomberman series has always been known for its fun and addictive
gameplay, and these three new installments are no exception," said
John Greiner President and CEO of Hudson Entertainment. Packed with
fun attractions, a compelling single-player mode and a competitive
multiplayer experience, these new games will keep players coming back
Bomberman's always been a party favorite, and its pick up and play nature makes it ideal for the handheld market. If you've only got like 20 minutes for lunch or something, I can think of worst ways to occupy that time than to blow up strangers for a little while.
