posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Konami Amusement announced its four-versus-four cooperative battle arcade game Bombergirl at Japan Amusement Expo 2017 on Friday. The game is playable at the event, which is being held at Chiba's Makuhari Messe convention center from February 10 to February 12.
Konami describes the game:
As Bombergirl, not Bomberman, this is an enjoyable new title with new game elements that is not only fun to play, it is also fun to watch.
Based on the block-destroying gameplay of Bomberman, Bombergirl tasks players with destroying the opposing team's base before the other team in four-versus-four cooperative battles. By adding new game properties such as this, it is not only fun to play, it is also fun to watch. And with the button that pops out at the end, a match of Bombergirl is a sight worth seeing.
By raising strong and cute Bombergirls, you can make use of not only bombs, but various other skills. You can proceed through the match with the upper hand by strategically using skills. Bombergirl will have exciting matches that you can't take your eyes off until the very end.
From one to eight people can play the game together. In the game, players train Bombergirls to unlock skills to use to defeat the opposing base. The Bombergirls include the Bomber Shiro, Blocker Momoko, Attacker Oren, and Shooter Emera. The characters' names reference the colors of their outfits and hair.
Konami has yet to announce a release date for the arcade game.
Nintendo revealed the Super Bomberman R Nintendo Switch port of the Super Bomberman SNES game during its livestream presentation in January. The game features new graphics, boss battles, and an eight-player mode. The port is slated to ship on March 3, the same day as the Nintendo Switch.
