Even though it is far from revolutionary, online play in Bomberman is enough to give it attention. Eight players can log onto Xbox Live in a single Bomberman match compared to four players offline. Bomberman Live also includes other variations of Bomberman like paint mode where bomb blasts change the color of the floor. The other thing neat about Bomberman Live is you earn costumes as you play the game. So far Hudson has been showing stereotypical characters like a football player, pirate, opera singer and a bee (Hudson’s mascot is a bee!). Famitsu has more screenshots of Bomberman Live for the world to see and some concept art of the different costumes you can dress up Bomberman in.
Bomberman Live is scheduled to come out this summer in Japan on Xbox Live Arcade.
