New online Bomberman game heading to Xbox Live

Posted by Mark Raby

Redwood Shores (CA) - An all-new Bomberman game is heading to the Xbox 360 via the Live Arcade digital download service.  The new online multiplayer game will add to the Arcade's slate of originally produced content for the online service.

Bomberman Live will allow online multiplayer of up to eight players, as well as a classic same-screen multiplayer mode for up to four simultaneous players.

The game is the latest in a vast list of casual gaming titles developed exclusively for the Xbox Live Arcade.  The Wii, on the other hand, currently only offers existing games from past generations on its Virtual Console service, and the PS3 is racing to beat the Xbox 360 with regard to exclusive downloadable titles.

Bomberman Live will hit the Arcade across the globe some time this summer.
