You can see where it may end up.

Fair nuff. I just think it's pretty crazy that we all thought this was just a rushed launch title that'd be thrown by the wayside and now out of nowhere they're making a legitimate effort to both support it and actually address everyone's concerns.

It would be great if this eventually leads Konami to a new 2D Castlevania or a new Goemon game for example.

Clearly we need a Parodius x Star Fox crossover.

I played co-op with my 7 yo niece and multiplayer with her and my 9yo niece and they both enjoyed it.

Co-op was fun and v easy to understand, even if i did most of the work.

You can't​ turn off the ai in multiplayer mode though, which can be frustrating as they were often too good for my niece's.

Outside of the need to think on your feet about bomb placements/explosions, it's very very accessible.

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

thanks for the correction I should have said the series had a good run on Famicom

Game is solid but get ready to enjoy one of the best soundtracks in a super long time. Honestly felt like I was listening to some TGCD/Duo OST that time forgot. Super catchy.

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

We all know is HexaDrive (And Nintendo's support), but Konami allowing them to keep supporting the game and adding characters from their other propierties is, well, unprecedented.

Wait, they actually patched in 60FPS? It's finally playable? Holy shit, that is very unexpected. Now they need to make the courses not look like ass and at least look as good as Bomberman '94 or something.

Leave it to Nintendo to actually get developers to act on IP's they're just sitting on. Before this it was megaman in Smash, not new games sure but definitely something for the fans.

It's nowhere near a solid 60FPS but at least it's an unlocked frame rate. This makes it so much more responsive it's like night and day.

True, we may rejoice about Konami...but if he mentions Konami this week, it's a 90% chance we will ignore the Patch Improvements and focus on Konami "ruining" their IPs by putting them in Bomberman.

Negativity Sells.

Wow, I've been on the fence at the current pricepoint with the problems it had, but with the recent patch improving many issue and this DLC announcement, I'm sold on the support this game is still receiving. It's hard not to think that Konami would just cash-in on the game and not support it after launch, but this recent news has put the game in a brand new light for me.

Yeah you can, just select none instead of picking a character when the game asks you to add a CPU.
