Hudson Entertainment has announced that the award-winning franchise, Bomberman Land , is on its way to the PSP and Wii, and the DS will receive Bomberman Land Touch! 2 . Published by Hudson and distributed in North America by Konami, all three upcoming games are slated to release in January 2008.
If you're not familiar, Bomberman Land is basically like three games in one. There are a ton of mini-gamers in this one, and almost all of them can be played in the ever-popular multiplayer mode. The PSP version will boast 50 total mini-games (yes, 50), but there is also a "robust single-player Story Mode," which will provide plenty of entertainment for the lone gamer. It'll be up to you to solve quests and puzzles, all in the noble endeavor of "restoring peace and tranquility to the beleaguered Bomberman world." …well, that's good to know, but hey, this is Bomberman. It's all about the gameplay.
Lastly, the game will feature the Battle Pack Mode, which is the classic multiplayer experience that all fans of the series have come to enjoy. Both the PSP and DS versions of the game will let gamers share one game cartridge and network with fellow players to "create the ultimate party game."
“Gamers are going to be blown away by the sheer amount of content they get in the Bomberman Land series,” said John Greiner President and CEO of Hudson Entertainment. “Each version of the perspective Bomberman Land title is different, with unique mini-games, Story Mode, and features. With the success of Bomberman Live on XBLA, we knew we had to up the bar for the brand, and we believe this series truly is triple the fun.”
Hey, you don't have to convince us. Bomberman has always been awesome.
