Like we were all giving them so much shit about buying Hudson and doing jack with their IPs. I'm just stunned right now.

I wonder how much of this is Konami and how much is just old Bomberman crew caring enough to revive the IP

Dunno if it works as advertised (others in the other thread can clarify), but the patch downloaded while I was playing Puyo Puyo Tetris 15 minutes ago.

Some of it may be Nintendo too. It is in their best interest to get all cylinders firing on the Switch.

Well, it's not like they have 80 million dollars tied up by just one game now. The budget for this is probably like 800K for all we know.

Interesting! I may have to pick this up soon. I had passed because of the reports on iffy controls. Apparently that's been ironed out though, and these DLC Bombers have caught my eye! I wonder if they'll have unique abilities like the Dastardly Bombers?

Didn't Nintendo make a small push to have a new Bomberman game too?

Pretty much. My theory is that after Konami left the AAA industry. Nintendo approaches them to bring AA games to switch at a cheaper budget than AAA games, with Bomberman being the first.

The sheer magnitude of the post-launch support for Bomberman is the first good news to come out of Konami in years. It's the complete antithesis to everything they've become in recent times. There was a post in another thread that said his segment this week should literally just be him staring at the screen speechless.

Indeed, classic IP reappearing as switch exclusived would be a major coup imo.

It's a scene from season 2 of Daredevil. The Punisher shoots him in the head at point blank range. His body armor saves him but it screws with his senses, causing him to go momentarily deaf. The GIF is the scene of him freaking out when he can't hear.

I was going to say Shattered Memories, but then I remembered there was a PS2 and PSP version of the game.

Nintendo consoles has been getting some exclusive horror games like Fatal Frame. So who knows.

I don't think he cares about bomberman. He didn't review it as far as I know.

Meanwhile he adores silent hill.

You can see where it may end up.

Bought it at the Switch launch and loved it aside from the flaws. Extremely refreshing that Konami of all publishers is actively looking to improve the title. Definitely a must buy for those who own a Switch and are looking for some classic Bomberman shenanigans.

Not exactly, actually it first came out on MSX, the first game did get a release on Famicom(and NES) a few years later.

Regarding Nintendo's involvement:

Originally Posted by From that article

No, it's free. The game getting free DLC was announced a few weeks back.
