Video Game: Bomberman 94
The original Japanese cover

Bomberman '94 is a 1994 installment in the Bomberman franchise for the TurboGrafx-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 Bomber Planet lived in peace, protected by five spirits, until the evil Bagular and his robot army invaded. The Spirit Pictures, the source of the Spirits' magical power, were destroyed, splitting Bomber Planet into five pieces. Bomberman must restore the Spirit Pictures, reassemble Bomber Planet, and defeat Bagular 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.
