Celebrating in style
Super Bomberman R has now accumulated over one million sales worldwide, and to celebrate, Konami has thrown its lovely mascot off of a terrifyingly high bridge. The game, which released as a Switch launch title back in March 2017, has been edging towards this milestone for a little while now. The one million sales figure...
Kept you waiting, huh
For many Metal Gear fans, David Hayter is Snake. He voiced the character in 1998's Metal Gear Solid and retained the role right up to the release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, at which point he was replaced by Hollywood star Kiefer Sutherland. Hayter was justifiably bitter about being unseated from his most famous...

The time was right to light the fuse

With anime girls and destructible clothing, obviously
As well as bringing Bomberman to the Switch in the form of Super Bomberman R, Konami - for reasons unknown - is creating an arcade title based on the franchise which uses anime-style girls instead of the titular Bombermen. According to 4gamer, this forthcoming title will be a 4-on-4 coin-op...
The bomb hasn't gone off yet
One of the rather random announcements to come from the Nintendo Switch presentation was that Super Bomberman R—a new Bomberman game—would be making its way to the platform. It's been many years since Hudson Soft's former mascot has starred in his own title, much akin to a certain blue bomber, and it seemed as though...
