Bomberman Kart is a racing game for PlayStation 2 starring the Bomberman characters. It is similar to Mario Kart. The game supports 4 player local multiplayer using the PlayStation 2 Multitap. The first version was released in 2001 in Japan and later 2003 in Europe. The second version, called Bomberman Kart DX (director's cut) was released in 2004 only in Japan. Neither version has ever been released in the United States.
Bomberman Kart Deluxe is a redesigned version with graphics improved, new tracks, new racing modes and extras: manga artworks, customizable traditional 4-player bomberman game and 2-player co-op dungeon crawling adventure. The DX version removed the 4-player GP racing option and local multiplayer in this mode is now limited to 2 players. It also features downloadable content expansion packs adding more races (The PS2 HDD and Network Adaptor are required).
