Bombing Bastards has received a 177MB update in Europe. It seems that, primarily, the patch enables sound on the GamePad. We’ll let you know if we hear anything else about the update.


If you plan on downloading Bombing Bastards, make sure you reserve 357.2MB. Once installed, the game’s size is reduced to 330MB. You can purchase Bombing Bastards from the North American Wii U eShop as of today.

Bombing Bastards is slated for release next week in North America, Sanuk Games has announced. The game will be available on July 3 for $6.99 USD / $7.49 CAD / 89 MXN.

Bombing Bastards is also coming to Europe. A specific date hasn’t been confirmed, but Sanuk hopes to have it out “a couple of weeks later.”
