REDWOOD CITY, California - January 29, 2008 - Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm of Hudson Soft, today announced Bomberman Land for the Wii and the PSP (PlayStationPortable) system, and Bomberman Land Touch! 2 for the Nintendo DS are now available at retail. Published by Hudson and distributed in North America by Konami Digital Entertainment Inc., all three versions are now available for a suggested retail price of $29.99 each.
Bomberman Land brings an exciting single player campaign element to the Bomberman property while holding true to the multiplayer mode that has made it so popular in the past. The series introduces a multitude of attractions, many of which can be played in multiplayer mode. Both the PSP system and Wii feature 50 attractions. While the Wii version is full of interactive games that use intuitive Wii Remote controls, all of the PSP system's attractions can be played and shared in multiplayer. The Nintendo DS version features more than 40 types of attractions that either use the stylus or the microphone to play. In addition, the Bomberman Land series contains a robust single-player Story Mode, where adventurers explore a fantasy land, take on quests and solve puzzles to restore the peace and tranquility of the beleaguered Bomberman world.
The biggest feature on each platform is the classic multiplayer Bomberman experience that gamers know and love. The PSP system and Nintendo DS allow up to four players to compete globally. While both versions offer shared multiplay, the Nintendo DS title allows eight people to play locally. The Wii version, on the other hand, features six "Battle Modes": Normal, Points, Stars, Crown, All-Out and a Wii exclusive mode designed specifically for the Wii Remote. Each "Battle Mode" includes 20 maps, making it the game to have for the ultimate party.
"As one of the most recognizable video game franchises in the industry, the Bomberman series has always been known for its fun and addictive gameplay, and these three new installments are no exception," said John Greiner President and CEO of Hudson Entertainment. Packed with fun attractions, a compelling single-player mode and a competitive multiplayer experience, these new games will keep players coming back for more."
