Bomberman Live: Battlefest


Hudson si prepara a lanciare una nuova versione del mitico Bomberman, sequel diretto di quel Bomberman Live giunto su Xbox Live Arcade e PlayStation Network qualche tempo fa.

Bomberman Live: Battlefest, questo il titolo esatto, sarà disponibile nel corso del periodo invernale su Xbox 360, seguito nel 2010 dalle versioni per PlayStation 3 e Nintendo Wii, sempre tramite digital download, ovviamente.

Tra le novità di spicco, segnaliamo alcune modalità di gioco inedite (VIP, Capture the Flag e Capture the Crown) nonchè la possibilità di formare un team, in cui debbono cooperare due o più giocatori per arrivare alla vittoria.

A tutto ciò si aggiunge anche l'immancabile presenza di nuove arene, personaggi e power-up, nonchè la possibilità di giocare direttamente con il proprio avatar all'interno degli schemi di gioco, caratteristica quest'ultima riservata esclusivamente alla versione Xbox 360.

Il comunicato stampa ufficiale è disponibile subito dopo il break

Ready for more? The sequel to the immensely popular downloadable game brings more action, more multiplayer fun, more powerups, more modes, more maps, more costumes, more....everything! The classic Bomberman gameplay upgrades with new features (including the fan-requested Teams gameplay!) that will have you hooked on blasting friends online or locally. And with up to 8 players online, every match is guaranteed to be epic fun! With an array of gameplay options at your disposal, Bomberman Live: Battlefest is set to rock the house on Xbox LIVE® Arcade this Winter, and detonate on the Playstation®Network and WiiWare™ in 2010!

Assemble the crew. It's time to bring the bombs with your buddies and prove who's got the chops to hold the Team crown! Play locally or bring the pain online; it's more fun with friends!

New Modes!
All new ways to claim your Bomberman crown! Learn more about these team-only gameplay modes and how they'll change the way you play.

Protect the VIP! Two teams of four each have one VIP on their squad. Unfortunately, the VIP is so important, they can't set any bombs! You'll have to work together to defend with your other team mates who must escort the VIP to a designated point at the other end of the arena.

Capture the Flag
The classic multiplayer game is here in full form! Both teams have a flag so both teams will need to both attack and defend their flags as well. Coordinate effectively as a team to come out on top! It's CTF, Bomberman style!

Capture the Crown
First appearing in Bomberman Blast, Capture the Crown makes a triumphant return! Players start on the edges of the arena with one crown in the middle. The player who is able to hold onto the crown the longest wins!

It's points for power-ups! Players earn points for bombing other players, destroying blocks, and so on. The twist? Destroying blocks rarely yields a power-up. At the end of each match, you'll trade in your points gained for power-ups in the menu in between matches. Bomb wisely!

New Powerups!

5 all-new powerups make their debut! Will the power of the Cluster Bomb be your new go-to? Or will the destructive Laser Bomb be a game-changer? Veterans need not worry as all the classic powerups return in full force! Customization options allow you to pick and choose which power-ups appear in any given arena.

New Characters!
You thought you had choices before? Bomberman 2 packs 18 new costumes in addition to the original selection from Bomberman Live! Mix and match 3 costume pieces from Napoleon Bombaparte, Chef Bombardee, Sir Bombalot, and more! Make your Bomberman your own!

New Arenas!
The Bomberman battlegrounds have changed once again, this time with more tricks, gimmicks, and fun! From Adventure Island themed landscapes to the shape-shifting MultiMaze, no battle will ever be the same!

XBLA Avatar Support
Bring your avatar on to the battlefield with the XBLA version! Your avatar is no longer stuck on the menus, and can now run, throw, and bomb with all combatants on the map!
