Bomberman Hardball, also known as Bomberman Battles in Japan, is a game released on the PlayStation 2. Unlike other Bomberman games, Hardball has several sport games available along with the traditional Battle Mode. Hardball also features a new "Living Mode" where you can customize your own Bomberman with coins earned from playing games.
- Battle Mode
- Living Mode
- solo mode
- mutiplayer mode
- As Bomberman Hardball was released in PAL territories before the Bomberman Land games received official localizations, the characters' English names differ: Shiro Bom (Cheerful White) became Ivory Bomber, Kuro Bom (Cool Black) became Star Bomber, Midori Bom (Bookworm Green) became Jade Bomber and Ao Bom (Kid Blue) became Blue Bomber; here, Pretty Bomber (Cute Pink) and Gold Bomber (Giant Gold) were left intact from the original Japanese version.
