Apart from the very first game in the series, Bomberman has always been famed for its frantic, fast-paced, and, above all, fun multiplayer modes. Pretty much every single game starring the little guy has featured support for multiple players, with most of...

HUH! There's finally a 3rd party N64 game coming to the VC?!

(can't believe that some people would rather wait 4 years for some 3rd party N64 games to come to VC rather than to get the carts.)

You could say the same thing about any VC game not yet on the shop (other than NeoGeo and arcade games). I just sold SNES cartridges that I would buy again if they were to be released next week. I don't care for having a large amount of different consoles and cartridges lying about. Those days are long gone. I prefer my retro games to be on either my Wii, PS2 or XBOX 360.

^ The problem w/ that, however, is the support/lack of it, that any co. gives to their virtual/emulation library.

Myself, I like owning both cart, & VC if it's a really great game as far as I'm concerned. If it's an ok game, I'll take it in 1 of the forms, but don't have to necessarily own it in both.

One of the best ways to deal w/ the issues presented by the VC, is to own the carts you know won't come to VC, & if you're a space-saver, just don't get games you know are on VC, or you know for a fact are coming (to it).

At the time, the Bomberman series was experimenting with a wide variety of different genres from karts to baseball to puzzles games and yes, even adventure games like this.

if oyu guys are complaining about lack of multiplayer you're nuts. the N64 could only do 4 player anyways. Go get Bomberman 94 or Bomberman Blast

I wonder if it's really difficult for companies to port 64 games or they just haven't felt like it?

Kinda both I should imagine. I'd think its a higher risk to put an N64 game on the VC if its not guaranteed to sell well because of the higher costs involved to the publisher. Also, many third party N64 games relied on the memory pak to save games whereas with first party games, the memory pak was used for optional extras (such as ghosts in Mario Kart). Nobody would want to play through Goemon 64 for example in a single sitting, unable to save your progress.

This game is alright but most of the stages seem too short and the game dosen't really have much features.
