Konami Reveals the Cute and Sexy Bombergirl for Japanese Arcades

Konami has announced (via 4GamerBombergirl for Japanese arcades.

Described as a four-player cooperative battling title, the game obviously drops the Bomberman theme for a totally moe one filled with girls. It’s also worth mentioning it seems like there’s clothing destruction, because why not.

Here’s the first footage of the game in action:

You’ll be tasked with raising cute Bombergirls, and destroy your opponents base before they can destroy yours. At the end of a match, a large button appears – Konami teases what it does.

A release date for Bombergirl wasn’t confirmed. If you’re looking for a more traditional Bomberman game, Konami is releasing Super Bomberman R for the Nintendo Switch, on March 3rd.

  • EroBotan

    is this the sign of konami revival?

  • catazxy

    It looks pretty nice, but I don’t see the need for a second screen.

  • magicalfollower

    For being an Arcade release, I’d say no.
    But i’m not too sure about that since arcades are still a hot thing in Japan…

  • PixelBuff


    Can’t in good conscience support Konami though.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Everyone gets a genderswap/personification these days.

  • sanic

    I’d play it.

  • Ace

    When’s the Pachinko version coming out?

  • Mr0303

    That’s cool, but then again it’s Konami.

  • Matz

    -We need to make a new Bomberman game that would be liked by American fans, so we redesigned Bomberman as a Master Chief knock-off because Americans love manly dudes with lots of explosions

    -We need to make a new Bomberman game that would be liked by Japanese fans, so we redesigned Bomberman as a cute girl and with some clothing damage feature because that’s pretty popular here

  • Krimhelm

    – We need to make a new Bomberman game, so we decided to reboot it for the switch, but it probably won’t sell well anyways despite how many games we’ve put out so we’ll push another project into the arcades for young adults.
    Fixed it for you to be more accurate.

    Meanwhile at Kotaku…….

  • AR7777

  • AuraMaster DX (austin9568)

  • RomadE

    You forgot the REEEEEEEEE and the autistic screeching :D

  • gwadahunter2222

  • Dreiko

    >You’ll be tasked with raising cute Bombergirls, and destroy your opponents base before they can destroy yours.

    …It’s like some fucked up combination of Chao Garden and Sekirei Project.


  • Shinobu

    How popular are these portrait mode arcade cabinets in Japan these days? They seem everywhere.

  • James Hewitson

    Stupid Censorship SJW Siliconera deleting any comment they don’t like -_-
    Anyway back on topic I 100% approve of this!!!

  • magicalfollower

    They also shutted down comments on Kolin’s reveal article because a snowflake got offended that Kolin’s default costume was showing 5 centimeters of leg…

  • EroBotan

    we just gotta wait and see then i guess … i hope it comes to steam someday!

  • James Hewitson

    LOL doesn’t surprise me about them anymore.

  • TT

    wait, what happened?

  • gwadahunter2222

    You are underestimate Konami

  • Tubsiwub

    While cute, they’ve murdered the original mascot “Bomberman” character. He’s even got ‘man’ in the name… like… c’mon now.


    Will bang either.


    Not like it’s a bad thing.

  • SiliconNooB

    I still don’t forgive you, Konami!

  • Kessek

    Popular for trading card games. Almost all of them sport a Portrait mode screen (ie Yokai Watch).

    Regular games…not so much.

  • Kessek

    If it’s 5 rounds of matches then hell yeah. Otherwise…I dunno.



    That reminds me, where’s Sekirei mobage? If DXD and Monmusu got games, why not Sekirei?

  • Slizzl

    But this is Bombergirl

  • OSad

    But how do they lay down the bombs?

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    When Japan does it.

  • Γεώργιος Αρχαιοκαπηλίδης

    At least Hudson was still making lots of great Bomberman games back in 2006, so the shitty spin-off was quickly overlooked (although we still make fun of it).
