Bomberman used to be a great competitive game, but it had disappeared lately and we thought we would not see its return before long. So it was with pleasure that we learned about the release of a new opus planned for the official launch of the Switch. Featuring a single player campaign and a versus mode of course, the game's content seemed enticing. That being said, after a few hours of playing, our impressions are pretty mixed. Have a look at our 4 gameplay videos and let us know what you think.

    Sdarts But I also believe there's a resistance by many Japanese developers, because the Xbox never made it in Japan and also probably because Microsoft never made strides to build better relationships with (0 minute ago)

    KORNdog @Sdarts: when they had more options (see lost oddysey and blue dragon) they didn't buy them in high enough numbers to warrant sequels, which says to me it's the former. (1 minute ago)

    Sdarts @KORNdog: Perhaps, but are JRPGs just not popular with XB1 owners or just because there's not many to choose from? I believe the latter is the most probable reason. (3 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's one thing to have the install base. but it's another to have enough people within it willing to buy your game. these japanese devs clearly don't feel it's worth the effort of porting the game. (4 minutes ago)

    Sdarts Also, RPCS3 allows you to play games downloaded from PSN, so you can legally buy games from PSN - like PS+ free games - and transfer them to your PC's HDD and play using RPCS3. (5 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: it depends if they think the market is there for it. which xbox owners tend to send out the impression it isn't. it's why we're not seeing a lost oddysey 3 or a blue dragon 4 being announced. (5 minutes ago)
