Rest in Peace. I hope he lived a happy and fulfilling life.

I spent hours and hours as a kid drawing Bomberman comics.

Less than a day before his character gets revealed as a Smash fighter?

Unfortunate news.

That makes it three died today. That’s awful. Rest In Peace.

Who are the other two?

Also..rip

An actor who did Dr. McCoy from Star Trek and a former guitarist of Fleetwood Mac who they also passed away too.

For DeForest Kelley, he means "on this day", as he died in 1999. Don't know the other so can't say if that the same case.

I was shocked to find out about this while browsing 4chan, I was hoping it was a joke but some threads aren't that cynical. Rest in peace, I know it must be tough for the people close to him, may they be comforted as well.

A job well done, I say. Bomberman is one of the few video game character designs that looks as good now as when it was first invented. Sure, they've tweaked his proportions a bit, but the look has endured rather well.

Oh no that's awful! Sad

When I was in classes I used to draw little Bomberman doodles in the corners of my notebooks when I was feeling bored or down. The design was so simple that even someone like me who was not good at the drawing could do it and the little guy always came out so friendly looking that it never failed to brighten my day.

RIP

Ugh. I like Bomberman's design.

Rest in peace…

One of the great classic characters. I hope Bomberman never changes. Condolences to his family.
