Hello all. As of late, I've been sifting through old Nintendo Power scans, looking for letters and materials to share on my channel. In volume 74, I happened upon an article discussing the Virtual Boy and an image was included from E3 that year that featured Panic Bomber. I figured I'd share it here. I'll post other relevant Bomberman stuff if I find anything.

Now that you've requested it, we never will. We'll never forget either. Years will pass, and you will think you're safe, when suddenly "Hey remember when legato made that duplicate Nintendo Power thread on BombermanBoard?" and boom! Shame shame shame! You will never escape it! But just when you thought you could escape it in death...

Sorry if this seems like spamming. I'm just skimming a lot of these today. Here's a screenshot and a mention of Virtual Bomberman, the cancelled game in vol 80.

Edit: A brief mention of Panic Bomber VB as well as Virtual Bomberman in vol 82.

This is all very cool! Thanks for digging this up.

..."Decker Bomb"... ugh, what a translation. :stun:

Hey, it's been a while, but I thought I should bring up something really interesting within volume 77.

When I first started translating, it's because I knew that some silly hacks made up new names like "Zach" and "Miss Flashy" for the characters in Panic Bomber VB, and I wanted to know what the characters (aside from Pretty Bomber) were really called. I had postulated that maybe they just didn't even bother to translate the characters' names. However, these scans prove me wrong.

While the first level is renamed to this weird "Bow Wow Ruins" shit, on page 74, it clearly mentions "Balom", "Kurin", "Wolfbomber", and "Bompire". So, early in porting the game, somebody was going to use the right names - er, well, sort of (Wolfbomber?).

Although, again... Decker Bomb... :shifty: 

I've said it before: If you can't even figure out what "deka" means maybe you shouldn't be professionally translating video games.

Funny, but the difference there is that the title of that anime is actually decker

デッカー = Dekker (Decker)

デカボム = Deka (Big) Bomu

Side note: I don't believe I've heard of this show before. :oops:
