Because not all bombs are dangerous, right?

This week, on Xbox LIVE Arcade:

Bomberman Live: Battlefest - 800 MSP
Teams!: Assemble the crew. It's time to bring the bombs with your buddies and prove who's got the chops to hold the Team crown! Play locally or bring the pain online; it's more fun with friends!

New Modes!: All new ways to claim your Bomberman crown! Learn more about these team-only gameplay modes and how they'll change the way you play.

VIP: Protect the VIP! Two teams of four each have one VIP on their squad. Unfortunately the VIP is so important they can't set any bombs! You'll have to work together to defend with your other team mates who must escort the VIP to a designated point at the other end of the arena.

Capture the Flag:
The classic multiplayer game is here in full form! Both teams have a flag so both teams will need to both attack and defend their flags as well. Coordinate effectively as a team to come out on top! It's CTF Bomberman style!

Capture the Crown: First appearing in Bomberman Blast Capture the Crown makes a triumphant return! Players start on the edges of the arena with one crown in the middle. The player who is able to hold onto the crown the longest wins!

Bankroll:It's points for power-ups! Players earn points for bombing other players destroying blocks and so on. The twist? Destroying blocks rarely yields a power-up. At the end of each match you'll trade in your points gained for power-ups in the menu in between matches. Bomb wisely

New Powerups!:
5 all-new powerups make their debut! Will the power of the Cluster Bomb be your new go-to? Or will the destructive Laser Bomb be a game-changer? Veterans need not worry as all the classic powerups return in full force! Customization options allow you to pick and choose which power-ups appear in any given arena.

New Characters: You thought you had choices before? Bomberman 2 packs 18 new costumes in addition to the original selection from Bomberman Live! Mix and match 3 costume pieces from Napoleon Bombaparte Chef Bombardee Sir Bombalot and more! Make your Bomberman your own!

New Arenas!:The Bomberman battlegrounds have changed once again this time with more tricks gimmicks and fun! From Adventure Island themed landscapes to the shape-shifting MultiMaze no battle will ever be the same!

XBLA Avatar Support:
Bring your avatar on to the battlefield with the XBLA version! Your avatar is no longer stuck on the menus and can now run throw and bomb with all combatants on the map!
