Video Game: Bomberman 94

The original Japanese cover

Bomberman '94 is a 1994 installment in the Bomberman franchise for the Turbo-Grafx 16, the follow-up to Bomberman '93 and a loose prequel to Super Bomberman 3. After the TurboGrafx was discontinued in the West, the game was ported and localized as Mega Bomberman for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis.

The inhabitants of Planet Bomber lived in peace, protected by five spirits, until the evil Buglear and his robot army invaded. The Spirit Pictures, the source of the Spirits' magical power, were destroyed, splitting Planet Bomber into five pieces. Bomberman must restore the Spirit Pictures, reassemble Planet Bomber, and defeat Buglear and his army.

Despite the Mega Drive/Genesis being a more powerful console than the TurboGrafx-16, the Mega Bomberman port had inferior graphics, and multiplayer only supported up to four players instead of five, though the console was capable of five players with the right MultiTap.

The game is currently available to purchase from the Wii Virtual Console, along with Bomberman '93 and Bomberman Hero.
