Konami has revealed a new Bomberman spin-off arcade game during Japan Amusement Expo 2017. The newly announced Bombergirl focuses on cooperative versus play and good amount of fanservice.
Unveiled by Konami Amusement (Konami’s branch developing arcade, pachinko and pachislot machines) during the Japan Amusement Expo 2017 tradeshow, Bombergirl is a spin-off to the popular Bomberman franchise. At its core as a four versus four cooperative arcade game, Bombergirl tasks the players with demolishing the opposing team’s base by using playable characters known as Bombergirls. Each Bombergirl has a unique, cute and sexy look and comes with a unique set of abilities. Konami Amusement stated that the team combat in Bombergirl is highly strategic and is as fun to watch as it is to play.
Bombergirl is a bit more racy than what you’d expect from Bomberman normally. The characters have a lot of sex appeal are presented with a lot of tattered clothing from explosions and reveal a lot of singed and burnt skin to boot both when you lose your base’s core and when you take too much damage.
You can find a few screenshots of the arcade cabinet and the game itself just below this paragraph.
As the game’s homepage indicates, the characters in Bombergirl are separated into classes based on their role in the team. Four classes (Bomber, Blocker, Attacker and Shooter) have been revealed so far. As the characters on either team level up by gathering pickup items hidden in blocks and the overall Team Level rises, all Bombergirls on the particular team get access to their unique skills. The bigger the Team Level, the better skills you can use. For your reading pleasure, we have translated the short game synopsis and character bios along with their signature skills from the game’s official site.

Japanese publication 4Gamer managed to snap some film footage of the game in action at the JAEPO2017. You can view it below.
The character selection screen full of empty character slots in the video indicates there might be even more playable girls incoming soon, which would add even more variety to the explosive combat. Unfortunately, we’ll just have to wait for more info to arise, as even the game’s release date hasn’t even been announced yet.
