TOKYO--According to retail sources, Konami will release Bomberman for the Nintendo DS on May 26 in Japan. The game will be priced at 5,040 yen ($48).

Bomberman for the DS will feature 10 areas that contain a total of 100 stages. Each area comes with a powerful boss for you to challenge. Gamers can control items they obtain by using the touch screen.
