Bomberman Land Wii (ボンバーマンランド Wii), known as simply Bomberman Land in North America, is a video game for the Nintendo Wii. Unlike most Bomberman titles, this one features a collection of motion-based minigames instead of the usual grid-like action.
A demo of the game was playable at the Nintendo booth during the 2006 E3 gaming convention. The demo featured three minigames used to demonstrate the Wii Remote's functionality. These minigames included Mountain, Pierrot, and Space Tube. In the Mountain minigame, the player uses the Wii Remote to point and destroy falling rocks coming out of a volcano located in the background. The player also receives bonus points for shooting at the rocks consecutively without missing. In the Pierrot minigame, the Wii Remote is used to balance a giant bomb on a stick, which grows in size as the game progresses. The player must also avoid objects falling off from the balcony, which will cause the stick to tilt. If the stick manages to tilt too much, the bomb will fall off and explode. The Space Tube minigame uses the Wii remote to tilt the tube that Bomberman runs through, which makes Bomberman jump or turn right and left. The player must also avoid obstacles including closing doors and spikes.
While enjoying his free time at the beach, White Bomber receives an invitation to the amusement park "Bomberman Land." Upon arriving, he discovered many of his friends have received the same invite such as Cool Black and Cute Pink. When everyone arrives, the Director appears and informs them how things work. Just as things are about to talk off, a strange figure appears on a large screen, claiming to the "Champion" of the park. He has captured the Director and its up to White Bomber to win the events and defeat the Champion at his own game.

- There are 20 save slots for Bomberman Land, just pick a slot and press A! After your first save, you’ll be asked the next time you save if you want to overwrite the current file (my suggestion is to choose YES, as this saves all current gameplay to the one file, instead of having a bunch of files at different parts of the game). Once you’re done saving press B to leave the save file screen.
