Bomberman Ultra Threatens PS3 This Winter, Sends Screenshots

Hudson Soft has announced Bomberman Ultra, a digitally-downloadable version of the explosive party game, coming to the PlayStation Network this winter.

Although it's "an all-new Bomberman," Ultra has a few things in common with Hudson's own Bomberman Blast, which launched this week on the Wii. Both games, for example, sport 4-player multiplayer on the same TV and 8-player online multiplayer.


The PS3 entry, however, will sport HD graphics and character customization featuring "150,000 possible combinations" of costumes. 14 arenas will be playable, and online leaderboards will also be part of the package.

A price, or a release date more specific than "this winter," were not made available.
