Japan Amusement Expo 2017 has revealed Konami’s latest 4v4 arcade title, “Bombergirl”, which many have been negatively labeling as a last ditch effort by Konami to make money off the nostalgic Bomberman franchise (other than actually doing something new with it).

The game however does have a slightly different twist, as players are tasked with not only blowing each other up but the enemy team’s base as well, even though the arcade title’s main appeal will likely be the state of undress that the girls suffer from after being blown up.

Some footage of the game in action, with some viewers apparently taking offense at the game’s female focus:











Those interested in seeing the game for themselves can visit Japan Amusement Expo 2017 in Chiba from now until February 12th.

    "other than actually doing something new with it"

    That's exactly what they're doing here. Something new. This is at least way better looking than the last time they tried doing something new with Bomberman (Act Zero). *shudder*

    Hopefully the game will be ported sometime in the future. Would love to get back into the series with waifus now added.

    I'm more annoyed that the game is too lenient.. if your hit by your own bombs, you should lose a life. That's the beloved frustration of the original game.

    IIRC there were some bombergirls in the original games already. I distinctly remember a neko-bombergirl and a bomber-cowgirl

    they only get stunned/stripped if caught by an explossion? we are raising a generation of pussies! in my times if you got caught by enemies or hoisted by your own bomb, you exploded gruesomely.

    Konami has sunken so low, they may as well do this to all their franchises, including Silent Hill and Metal Gear.

    I would play such game it it clearly needs more lewd (or better yet hentai) scenes. Also the fact that bombs don't do anything to you aside from slight delay is pretty underwhelming. Getting more and more naked and starting from the respawn point until your heroine completely nude would be the right Japanese way. Same with your opponents.
