Images and Artworks of Bomberman Act Zero

Images and Artworks of Bomberman Act Zero

The developers at Hudson must be laughing really hard now, as they released some new screenshots and especially some new artworks of Bomberman Act Zero. I can't believe how they managed to get characters of a Bomberman game to look this close to the manga Gantz.

Holy shit what badass art. Completely different take on the whole thing, but if it turns out well then I'll be happy. I'm still wary of First Person Bombing, but as long as classic mode is there I'll be in good shape.

I'm actually liking this stuff....

Hmm... I'm failing to see how anything here looks like Gantz... unless you are saying purely because on the artwork, in the first two the guys have circles on their bodies? o.O Still a stretch.

Of course I'm basing this on these 2 artworks. I'm not saying everything looks like Gantz, but it's still incredible to see such design in a Bomberman game.
Until now it looked more like that :

What have they done to Bomberman!! :(

Just get the original on Xbox live arcade. Even at 1200 points it would sell loads for little or no dev costs and make a ton of profit!

If the Creators of GantZ were to redesign the suits I think it would look something like this. The dark artstyle & the certain placement of the plugs. if they were just circles i would say it doesnt look like gantz Plus if they were really going for the gantz look the girl bomberman would be halfway or all the way outta that suit lol. this game should be fun

i liked the old bomberman better, this seems like a silly attempt to make it modern. Its like taking megaman and turning him into terminator.

I prefer the old-style bomberman too.. But if the gameplay is still the same I might consider buying this.. Bomberman is a lot of fun as a MP party game..

Besides the artstyle, it seems no one has even noticed that the graphics suck hard.
If this is an arcade game, then fine. For a full retail game though, the visuals look PS2.

I wish they did a cute bomberman game insted for this

The super fun Saturn version of Bomberman is coming to Xbox Live Arcade. It's not just rumor and I'm sure it will downloaded by everyone who is on Live.

Yep, the graphics do blow, but messing up a classic game character is even worst.

Will this even be popular with the japanese???
Commented on 2006-03-31 18:07:31
Huh. i think 'different' is the word i would use to describe it.

I liked Bomber Man: Hero on the N64 though. I personally hope its not ALL in an arena like that.

Bomberman to the extreme! The commercial will feature him skydiving while drinking a mountain dew.
Commented on 2006-03-31 21:30:04
Isnt Hudson rumored to bring the ORIGINAL 16 player saturn version to the arcade. Forget about this lame ass "XTREME" teen angst version.

If this is the rumored game then forget it alltogether, bomberman is dead :(
Commented on 2006-03-31 22:20:51
Well, this proves the point that the xbox is more guided to the 18 year old and up audience. Nintendo makes bomberman look like a cute little thing that drops love bombs to kill the bad guys, but xbox shows it as a freak terrorising the whole city.
Commented on 2006-03-31 22:46:05
Ugh..bring on Saturn Bomberman! And uhh..Nintendo didn't make bomberman do anything--Bombermans been cute on plenty of platforms..this is all up to Hudson.

I think the fondest memories I have of bomberman are probably w/ the Sega Genesis and TG-16 versions..good times.

And I believe they're still considering/evaluating a real bomberman game for XBLA..give them time to work something out...if we're lucky we'll start seeing other Hudson games on there as well.
Commented on 2006-04-01 03:32:59
This should be XBLA. If so, then fine... but yeah, like Dre Realla said, this ain't xbox360 quality.

However, I think they could've even updated the artstyle and still keep some familiar style elements. This just seems like a totally different game, but with the same mechanics.
-and it does it look weird to anyone else having these style characters running around a rather basic grid? it just seems out of place to me.

I think it would be cool if they made it where the combatants drop bombs in more realistic environments in a completely 3d space, like a city block, a temple or something, an arena on another level, whatever..then the bombs would explode in all directions rather than just spreading in 2 dimensions.. more like a real explosion but still exaggerated with the spread. Then they could just include a more traditional "oldschool" version with the original-style art for nostalgia's sake (and, honestly, cuz the simplicity of that 2d style is fun too.)...then maybe i'd pay around full price for it.

Does kinda look like the suits in Gantz... lol

This game looks like it's going to blow harder than hurricane katrina. meh, I much rather play old bomberman
