Ebisumaru skin available in Super Bomberman R 27 Jun 2018
In similar fashion to my previous update (9 months ago...), today (27th of June, 2018) Konami have once again released a new round of skins for Super Bomberman R.
With version 2.1 of the game, the Goemon bomber skin gets a new partner in the form of Ebisumaru bomber!
And similarly to the below, this is likely the first English voiced Ebisumaru in a game.
Just need Sasuke and Yae, then we can claim that Everybody's Here.
Something else I should mention as it has made the rounds:
Back in April, Konami bought the domain Goemon.com. Those of you have been on the Goemon online scene for a while will know that this used to be the URL for the first (Western) Goemon fansite - The Mystical Website of Goemon. Now, Konami have finally taken the domain for their own.
For a short time after Goemon.com went live, the website redirected to the the 2005 Goemon website. Interestingly, after a few days this redirect stopped, instead leaving us with a blank webpage. This led to quite a bit speculation - is this a sign of things to come? Are Konami teasing us? With E3 coming in less than 2 months, there was speculation among Goemon-fans about potential news. Sadly though, nothing as of yet. Even sadder, if you view the page source, you can see that the website just wants to redirect to the 2005 website. Potential web admin incompetence at Konami? I'll let you guys decide.
