There's a new Bomberman game heading to Xbox Live Arcade next week!

It's called Bomberman Live: Battlefest and it'll be available on Wednesday, 8th December.

This new version has eight-player online battles, character customisation, additional power-ups and four modes: VIP, Bankroll, Capture the Flag and Capture the Crown.

The old version, Bomberman Live, was released on Xbox Live Arcade in the summer of 2007. What did Eurogamer think? "A cheap, polished online-enabled offering that fans and newcomers should embrace heartily to their bosoms."

All that's left is for me to formally challenge you to a bout of Bomberman Live: Battlefest next week. I warn you: at Bomberman on SNES I was unbeatable.
