'Bomberman Act: Zero' (X360) - 13 New Screens

Originally released back in the '80s, Hudson Soft's Bomberman has been a classic ever since, with only minor changes made to the formula in subsequent iterations. Now Hudson is going to throw it all overboard and breathe new life into the franchise by bringing it to the X360, with multiplayer support and even a first-person view mode.

Bomberman Act: Zero for the Xbox 360 redefines the series for the next generation with breathtaking high resolution graphics and all-new gameplay elements. Deep within an experimental underground facility in a bleak alternate future, humans are imprisoned as test subjects and trained to become deadly soldiers. Equipped with armored battle suits, players must fight for survival and eliminate each other to determine who will become the final human weapon. As Bomberman, your objective is simple: destroy your opponents before they destroy you.

Players are challenged to survive through 99 stages as they try to escape this experiment gone wrong and reach the surface. As they progress through the corridors of the facility, they will scramble for hidden items such as the program extension chip to strengthen their armor as well as other powerful ability enhancements. Up to 8 players can battle for survival online in classic multiplayer action through Xbox Live and earn points to become the ultimate weapon on the World Rankings. Online players can also customize their character from a wide variety of visual options, including gender, color and armor type. Bomberman Act: Zero is scheduled to launch in stores this Summer.

Key Features:

  • Survive through 99 stages as you try to escape to the surface
  • Scramble for hidden items like the program extension chip to strengthen your armor
  • Evade looming bomb blasts from a new tension-filled perspective
