Wii owners and fans of the adorable lil terrorist Bomberman will be pleased to learn that not one, not two , but three different Bomberman
titles are currently in development for the Nintendo console
. The latest two include the traditional WiiWare version already announced
, as well as a less traditional retail version, due out this June in Japan.
If you're a bit confused, don't worry. The two titles were mixed up in the original Famitsu report, but a representative from Hudson has set the record straight. The WiiWare Bomberman
is the classic throwback, while the retail Wii Bomberman
will feature 8-player online multiplayer, with new items and Mii support.
This appears to be a different retail title than the minigame-centric Bomberman Land
, meaning that Hudson's "big plans" for Bomberman
were apparently viciously milking the franchise for all it's worth.
