Bomberman is a classic and popular game franchise that was established in 1983. Since then, the game has had several sequels and spinoffs released for different platforms, such as Nintendo, PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles. Now the franchise is coming soon to Apple devices for the first time, available exclusively to Apple Arcade subscribers.
The announcement was made by Konami, which currently owns the Bomberman franchise. For those unfamiliar with Bomberman games, they basically consist of a style of play where the player must defeat enemies by placing bombs. There are several power-ups that increase the strength of your bombs – which can also end up killing you.
Amazing Bomberman combines classic gameplay with original music created by various Japanese artists, as well as new ways to play. For example, players will have the option to play online with people around the world or with their friends, as well as a practice mode for solo players.
In a brief teaser shared by the developers, Amazing Bomberman can be seen combining visual elements from the original games with modern, customizable characters. According to Konami, there will be collectibles to customize throughout gameplay. Of course, these items will be available for free since Apple Arcade games have no in-app purchases.
AMAZING BOMBERMAN brings musical mayhem to the legendary series as players use different types of bombs to smash through obstacles and collect special items as the scene changes to match different songs. The game launches with seven different playable scenes and features original music composed by artists from Japan and overseas.
