Trailer / Patch Notes


        1. It’s a fucking last minute tech demo they cooked up that should’ve been a bundle software but of course, you have plenty of IDIOTS buying this obviously lazy flash game. Maybe if it had been Warioware which it should’ve been, it would’ve sold/praised considerably well.

  1. Best Buy has it for $25 on Black Friday. Tempting after all this support.

    Also Disgaea will be $20. Decisions, decisions…

  2. Wow, I’m honestly surprised by the continued support, especially since the game came out almost a year ago to only mixed reviews.

    I haven’t played in months, but perhaps a revisit is in order.

    1. While I do agree with the f*ck Konami, this game has had some real love from the developers from Hudson, and I think of them and their job when people doesn’t buy this. It’s a “tveegget sverd” as we say in Norwegian. Pay them and Konami wins; don’t pay and those poor developers doesn’t get their salary.

  3. wowwwww, awesome!!
    I have played Bomberman R in a party at my home and it was a blast, everyone enjoyed , we played in 6 person, so crazy amazing!
    I want regulus, altair, sirius and the enemies from bomberman 64, please :O

      1. In Norwegian Kona means “Wife” and “Mi” means mine. And in Norwegian we say it that order, so it’s hard not to laugh when a company is called “My wife”.
