Bombergirl is the spinoff to Konami’s long-running Bomberman franchise.
Launched at the 2017 Japan Amusement Expo (JAEPO), Bombergirl comes 20 years after Bomberman was released for arcades. Bombergirl will also be an arcade exclusive.
Bombergirl is a co-op arcade game that pits players in four-on-four battles.
Based on the block-destroying gameplay of Bomberman, Bombergirl tasks players with destroying the opposing team’s base before the other team in four-versus-four cooperative battles.
By adding new game properties such as this, it is not only fun to play; it is also fun to watch. And with the button that pops out at the end, a Bombergirl match is a sight worth seeing.
By raising strong and cute Bombergirls, you can make use of not only bombs, but various other skills.
You can proceed through the match with the upper hand by strategically using skills. The Bombergirls will have exciting matches that you can’t take your eyes off until the very end.
In Bombergirl, players have the franchise's familiar ability of placing bombs to destroy blocks and beat enemies.
However, in place of Bomberman himself, players will be using anime girls as their playable characters.
Konami has 15 characters planned for Bombergirl, but only the first four girls for the game have been revealed so far.
The first four characters revealed for Bombergirl are:
Shiro: the bomber in a schoolgirl outfit who is capable of placing plenty of bombs on the battlefield;
Momoko: the blocker in the cute pink dress who has the ability to create blocks;
Oren: the attacker who can move at high speeds; and
Emera: the robotic-looking long-range shooter who can attack enemies from a distance.
Each of the four characters has her own skills, and as they gain levels during a match, they will be able to unlock special attacks that include a flaming sword and a laser beam weapon, in addition to powering up the bombs that they place on the battlefield.
Teams will be using their bombs and the skills of the characters to destroy the base of their opponents.
The release date of Bombergirl in Japanese arcades has not yet been revealed.
It is also unclear when the game will be released in the United States, or whether it will even be released outside of Japan.
