Is Bomberman officially dead?

I remember there was supposed to be a Bomberman on 3DS that looked like the awesome N64 Bomberman games but it got caned when ?Hudson? canceled a bunch of games. Just wondering if there has been any hint at a new entry in this franchise. The most recent games that come to mind are the Live games from 3 years back.

There was this one bomberman game for the xbox 360... Im pretty sure that game is the reason the series hasn't gotton a new game for years.

The U.S. branch of Hudson closed down a while ago which pretty much means we won't be getting any new bomberman games since they were responsible for bringing those games over to North America. From what I remember, Konami now owns the rest of Hudson so it's up to them whether or not a new Bomberman game gets made.

Bomberman as a series needs to go back to the Bomberman 64 style......which is really an off-shoot of the Mario 64 Style, which everybody abandoned for absolutely no reason at all.

He makes an appearance in Tetris Axis! But yeah, bummer. I was a big Bomberman fan, well Super Bomberman fan anyway.

I would like a decent way to play Bomberman 64. Pretty cool gaming with a really good soundtrack.

There were other Bomberman games after Zero.

I loved Jetters and Generation on the GameCube. Those games were badass.
