Bombs Away!

Friday, May 12, 2006, 11:34AM EST

The multiplayer capabilities now available on handhelds bring a new dimension to portable gameplay, and finally the frenzied action of Bomberman can be enjoyed by gamers on the go. Bomberman for PSP features a wireless ad hoc mode that allows up to four players to battle it out, and up to four can play using a single UMD. Along with classic mode with 50 levels, there’s a normal mode with a new story and a new system that allows players to create and use more items.

Of course, Xbox 360’s Live feature is also perfect for multiplayer matches, so Bomberman is making the leap to next-gen in Bomberman: Act Zero (working title) this summer. This version allows up to eight players to fight it out, trying to destroy or be destroyed in 99 stages as they scramble for hidden items such as a program extension chip that strengthens armor. Konami is publishing both Bomberman games.
