    I love playing Mega Bomberman on the Sega MD/Genesis emulator so what exactly will this new Bomberman make it a must buy?

    The online play will definitely be interesting but not why I'd buy it in the first place. I just want a bunch of good reasons to make myself get Super Bomberman R for the Switch. :)

    Your mom's basement.
    Because when Hudson Soft was bought out back in 2011, all Bomberman games in production were cancelled at the time. Since Konami decided to release some Turbo Grafx16 (PC-Engine for you Japanese folk) games on the virtual console for Wii U just last year. I'm just hyped that Konami is actually giving this series a chance.

    Wait before buying it tho. It's still FucKonami we're talking 'bout. The game might be total crap.

    Ah i always like bomberman. I play pretty much all of them, its just a cool game.
    It became a must buy for me, so that when im finish with zelda or need some down time from it i will have bomberman to play.
    Looking forward to playing it online. Thats someone i really wanted with the other ones.

    The game is actually being developed by Former Hudsonsoft people AKA Bomberman creators and alot of people who have played it at Switch events love it. It is being published by Konami but it's still being developed by Former Hudsonsoft devs, so it still has the old Bomberman vibe to it.

    Ah, in that case, I guess it's alright, then.

    The same way Ubisoft fucked tetris

    39:99 what Dollars? Pounds. Yen? Quid? I need to know currency! I'm not paying full price for a bomberman game. Especially if is KONAMI, $15 is probably the lowest they can get away with. HUDSON could get away with more. :P

    I'm surprised that no one mention Bomberman Act Zero.

    I admittedly played Bomberman R at the Switch Premiere but it left me with mixed feeling because when it was on the Switch Tablet screen and it looked so tiny, plus, playing with the Joy-Con wasn't really too ideal either (mainly the lack of a real d-pad being the reason).

    Thanks for that tidbit of info.

    Pachinko.

    I watched a gameplay video of Bomberman Act Zero and man, what a strange game that is!

    I played it too with someone else that knew their bomberman. Liked it well enough, though for what I did play not as much as the XBLA bomberman which is my current standard for modern bomberman (though if you can get past the tall bombers then bomberman 2 on the DS is good stuff). That said it seems the drop curves were a bit different (fewer of them but more potent for the game when you did get them).
    Got a look at some of the options and it had a few, though far from something like atomic bomberman's insane amount of them. It did have the recovery positions on the edge of the arena which I am not a fan of but can live with. The arena destruction was quite nice and added a bit of a different element.

    I would be stunned if it turned out as tight as Saturn or PCE bombermans, though I am not expecting to be anywhere near as divisive as N64 bomberman.

    To that end I suppose I would not fault someone for getting it but it will not be anything you can't do with half a hundred emulators right now.

    A good online multiplayer Bomberman game has been something we should have had a long time ago, and I can't believe we really don't have such a thing yet. Its probably the most enticing part of this new Bomberman game. Being a launch title it will probably have a good sized online audience as well. Even still $50 for the game is probably $10 to much for what the game is for me. I love Bomberman, but when his games don't have a full fledged adventure mode (I'm talking like the 64 adventures), I can't justify paying that high a price. If it were $40, I'd but it at launch along with Breath of the Wild.

    No, not for me. I played it on SNES and TurboGrafx. Not addiction and not into it. I will skip it, thought. It doesn't mean anything to me at all.

    The stages do look tiny and even the screenshots in HD still look small-ish. I dunno, I'm totally happy with this:

    It's a hardsell.

    15$ for a Switch game? YOU FUNNY MAN YOU
    Just turning on Switch will probably soon cost you 15$ if Nintendo continues its absurd prices.

    Sometimes you have fond memories of X series. But then the parent company gets sold and you think you will never see a X game ever again. But then beyond all hope the new IP holder announces a new title! So what it looks mediocre and comes at an absurd price when you need the money for rent, gas, car, computer, bills, tuition, smart phone? It's X! Sure you can just wait one or two years and it will certainly be cheaper, but if you don't support X on release then surely the new IP holder will never make a new X ever again. The IP is being held hostage and only you can save it!

    Most any Bomberman is not very much game. Imagine how much game $60 would get you in a Steam sale? Then remember OH MY GOD new BOMBERMAN game! WOW!
