There’s a new Bomberman clone on the Wii U’s eShop called Bombing Bastards. I’m still giggling that Nintendo, of all companies, is cool with a game being sold on its store with a name like that.

There’s the eShop listing, just as proof. Note that last year, Stealth Bastard had to change its name to get on Sony’s PSN. Nintendo, as the operator of an online store for video games, has no such problem with the word bastard. If you’re an indie developer out there toiling away on “Shithead’s Fucktown” though, that might be a stretch.

The game doesn’t actually look too bad either! It’s Bomberman, only with a super-corny narrator and a hip-hop nutcracker soundtrack.


  • Jesus christ, i couldn’t even make it through that whole video with that narrator. Shame.

  • kind of amazing considering the game Stealth Bastard was renamed to Stealth Inc on vita and ps3 because Sony didn’t like the name… way to go nintendo for not changing what the dev intended
