I missed Bomberman Hero for the N64 the first time around (originally released in 1998) so if/until I can pick up a nice boxed copy for my collection this will be a very welcome addition to my virtual console. Plus, it’ll be one more way to honor Hudson’s memory.
More about the game from Nintendo:
Bomberman Hero (VC)
Original platform: Nintendo 64
Publisher: Hudson Entertainment
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Mild Violence
Price: 1,000 Wii Points
Description: Bomberman returns in his own full-on action game. One day, out of nowhere, a spaceship crash-lands on Planet Bomber. Journeying to the Peace Mountains to investigate, Bomberman encounters Pibot, the dazed robot pilot. According to Pibot, the evil Garaden Empire attacked Primus Star and kidnapped Princess Millian from Pibot’s escape ship. Hearing this, Bomberman vows to save the princess, even if he has to travel the length of the galaxy to do it. Bomberman is equipped with an infinite supply of bombs and can count on a variety of upgrades to aid him in his quest. His search for the princess takes him to five exciting planets, reuniting him with his old friend Louie and uncovering new items. Fly, swim, shoot and bomb your way through the galaxy and save Princess Millian.
Bomberman Hero will be available this week for download via Nintendo’s Virtual Console service.
