Hi,I've been a bomberman fan since I was 8 years old and I've been following the series on Nintendo consoles since I played the original on NES. I recently read that Hudson Soft,the studio that developed Bomberman games was bought by Konami,and the first thing Konami did after the acusition was to fire 100+ people,abort a Bomberman game for the 3ds that was in the making,and order what was left of the team to work on Facebook casual games.
When I read that I was saddened.Are we going to ever see a new Bomberman game again ?
- It saddens me that the world of Bomberman has come to an end. Hopefully, it revives. And I was looking forward to 3DS.
- I hadn't read any explicit confirmation of such a mass layoff. Could you link me to the article? Thanks. Plasma Bomber 15:17, January 8, 2012 (UTC)
- It's true, the company went backrupt. You can read the article about it here on their Wikipedia page. Maybe someone has a better article? There are still some companies making bomberman style games though. Check out this game called Bomb Buddies which is free on Facebook and you can play with your friends.
