In advance of Bomberman's glorious return to the console world stage later this week in Super Bomberman R for the Nintendo Switch, it's worthwhile to review the bomber king's mighty legacy across the console, handheld, and mobile gaming spaces. Chris Scullion at Tired Old Hack looks back at Bomberman's many appearances and variations over the years from his early days in Dynablaster to becoming one of the gaming heroes to appear on a high definition television to the rise of sidekick Pommy to the unfortunate misstep that was Act Zero and beyond. I hope that Super Bomberman R lives up to expectations. I would love to be able to introduce my girlfriend to the wonders of the traditional Bomberman style of co-op play. The franchise has been gone for so long and flown under the radar so low that she's never played one. I really want to fix that!
