Bomberman explodes on WiiWare and the Wii

Recommended Videos

Thanks to Hero of Legend for pointing out a common misconception about Hudson’s Wii Bomberman game in the comments. When the title was announced Famitsu pinned it as a WiiWare title, in fact they still do. However, Hudson’s WiiWare page lists four games: Star Soldier R, Joysound, Tetris and Bomberman with a spring release date.


The Bomberman game with Mii support and online play for eight via Nintendo Wi-Fi comes out in June. Glancing through Hudson’s Wii release schedule they have another Bomberman game also called Bomberman scheduled to come out in June. It appears the Bomberman title we previously mentioned is actually a retail game, which makes actually makes more sense. I was wondering how Hudson could pack single player stages and online play in such a tiny amount of space.


So what about Bomberman WiiWare? Yes, there is still a Bomberman WiiWare game and John Lee from Hudson explains, “It's coming. Details are still being finalized. It will be different than Bomberman Live. But it's still the classic Bomberman, if you catch my drift. It's probably one of the few classic games we are bring out on Wii Ware, but digital download is really where Bomberman shines.”
