Hudson today unveiled an all-new Bomberman game, this one to be exclusive to the Nintendo Wii and the first Bomberman game to support online multiplayer. It will also let players pull their Miis into the game itself.

The new Bomberman game, and the first one to appear on Wii, will retain classic franchise features such as online multiplayer battles and numerous arenas, but it will also incorporate new gameplay elements such as the use of Miis and eight-person online multiplayer.
Players will be able to compete either alone or as part of a team against the best Bomberman players worldwide, as Bomberman Blast delivers eight-player multiplayer battles online. Gamers will also be able to send their Miis into a Bomberman Blast arena.
Up to four players on the same Wii can hop online. An online leaderboard shows just how good you are.
