Trivia / Bomberman

Specific game's Trivia section:
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Both Hi-Ten Bomberman and it's cousin Hi-Ten Chara-Bomb were exclusive to events hosted in 1993 and 1994 respectively, and were never released for home consoles in any format, however both were used as basis for Saturn Bomberman.
  • Market-Based Title: Bomberman Tournament is known as Bomberman Story in Japan. It's a more fitting title, since "Tournament" would imply more emphasis on online multiplayer with singleplayer that boils down to "multiplayer with bots". However, this game is more "Bomberman meets The Legend of Zelda with a side of Pokémon" in terms of the singleplayer, not that some people even bother with singleplayer in a Bomberman game.
    • Bomberman 64 can refer to TWO different games. The one we know is known as Baku Bomberman in Japan. The Japanese Bomberman 64 is actually a 2D game that never got exported.
    • Dyna Blaster and Atomic Punk.
    • Eric and the Floaters for the ZX Spectrum.
