For reasons unknown, the Bomb Crystal has shattered, scattering its fragments across the land and bringing forth monsters with them. It's up to Bomberman to recover the fragments and return the land to the way it was!
Bomberman makes his Nintendo DS debut, and this game's big selling point is its robust multi-player mode - in addition to gimmicks like voice-activated bombs and long arenas spanning both screens, it allows up to 8 local players using only one cartridge!
It also comes packed with a single-player mode that's 100 levels long and introduces an inventory system, allowing players to pick and choose what items to take to each stage and when to activate them. Ain't that handy!
