1[[quoteright:219:]]²After the flop of ''VideoGame/BombermanActZero'', Hudson decided to make it up to Xbox 360 users with a downloadable ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}}'' title more in line with the main series. Teaming up with Backbone Entertainment, Hudson produced ''Bomberman Live'', a downloadable title available on the UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade in 2007.²²Because of the space requirements on XBLA titles at the time, ''Live'' focuses almost entirely on the multiplayer aspect of the game (in essence being the antithesis to ''VideoGame/BombermanHero''). There's no story or campaign mode, with single player simply pitting the player against anywhere from 2 to 7 CPU opponents. Up to 4 players can play locally, and online play allows for 8-person battles. To make up for lack of single player, the games allows players to customize their Bomberman in a variety of themed costume parts. In 2009, a [=PS3=] version of the game was released under the title '''Bomberman Ultra'''.²²In 2010, Hudson teamed up with Pi Studios to release a sequel, '''Bomberman Live: Battlefest'''. The sequel continued the multiplayer focus of the first game, with more themed stages, costume parts and power-ups to play with.²²!

How well does it match the trope?
