Bomberman 64 HD Collection + Bomberman Hero
That's what I would like to see!
Well that sucks. I've had so much fun with it and it runs so well. It's kind of like tetris 99 or pac man 99, but with only 64 players bombing the crap out of each other. Hopefully it returns in some other form.
Glad to see they still have plans for Bomberman. I hope it's a new action/adventure game.
And that it plays like the N64 titles.
Well that's poopy... to have the online game shut down before the Switch is even surpassed...
