“We’re thrilled to again join forces with Hudson Soft Co., Ltd. and to strengthen our relationship with such a great game from the storied franchise,” said Sonoko Saito, Vice President of Production & Business Development for Atlus USA. “We published a pair of Bomberman titles in the recent past, so we’re intimately familiar with the series, and with the excitement that surrounds each new Bomberman release, Bomberman Land Touch! is just the beginning.” Bomberman Land Touch! is scheduled for release in early November 2006, and has not yet been rated by the ESRB; an E or E10+ rating is expected.
