We’ve dressed Bomberman up before, but in Custom Battler Bomberman the parts you choose actually affect your performance. Different arms, helmets, and legs alter your fire power, number of bombs, and running speed. Once you unlock the right parts in the games mission mode you can bring your custom Bomberman online and challenge others over Nintendo Wi-Fi… if you’re in Japan or Europe. Konami will publish Custom Battler Bomerman in Europe under the name Bomberman 2. Hudson USA hasn’t decided yet if they’re going to publish the game yet, but come on it’s Bomberman. It’s Bomberman already localized into English so chances are very high we’ll see this in North America, perhaps with a less generic name than Bomberman 2, in 2009.
