Three Bomberman games shipped for three different systems today, as Bomberman Land shipped for the Wii and PSP, and Bomberman Land Touch! 2 shipped for the DS. All three versions carry a suggested price of $29.99.
Bomberman Land brings a single-player campaign element to the Bomberman property while holding true to the classic Bomberman multiplayer mode. The game introduces several new attractions, many of which can be played in multiplayer mode (the Wii and PSP versions feature 50 attractions each). The Wii version’s games use Wii Remote controls, and all the PSP 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.
