ボンバーマンワールド / Bomberman World
Traditional (collect all gems)
1 to 5 (battle)
28 January 1998 (JP)
The first PlayStation game in the series, and also the final chapter that caps off the storyline ongoing from Pocket Bomberman and Bomberman Wars. Rather than set it in a far-flung era or hurl Bomberman into a brand new genre, it's back to the traditional blocks, grids and "collect stuff to open the exit" gameplay.
Bomberman World was later included on the PC compilation Bomberman Collection.
Not to be confused with the 1991 Bomberman World for arcades, developed by Irem. If you're looking for the one with the 4-player co-op and features the United Nations building being hijacked, then Irem's game is what you want.
Bomberman World wasn't always a PlayStation game - it seems it began life as Virtual Bomberman, a Virtual Boy game that was developed and promoted, but was ultimately unreleased.
